How do you install Service Pack updates for Windows XP?
In order to install a Service Pack update (e.g. SP2) in Windows XP you need the English Service Pack 2. You cannot install a Service Pack in a different language here.
Before installing the update you must also switch the operating system to "English". Information on switching over the language for the menus and dialog boxes in the Control Panel are available in our FAQ:
