XP SP3 Now on CD

Have you been putting off installing the new Windows XP Service Pack 3 until it becomes available on CD? Well, the day you’ve been waiting for has finally arrived! As many of you probably know, the XP SP3 install isn’t exactly a walk in the park. It’s a little difficult to accomplish and I know it caused a lot of problems for a lot of people. Plus, if you have to put it on more than one computer, it could take you ages to finish. Luckily, there’s now a better way of getting the install done and that’s by disk. Read on for the full scoop!

Microsoft recently released the SP3 as an ISO image, so now, you can download the package, burn it to a disk using your regular burning software and then install it on your computer via the disk. It’s so much easier than using an installer package online! Plus, this version includes everything you need from the fixes to the updates to the security hotfixes and so on. With all of that, the file size is rather large at 540 MB, but trust me, it’s worth it!

If you’re interested in using this method to install the XP SP3 on your computer, you can download the ISO image from this Web site. Just click on the Download link at the top of the page (within the big black box) and follow the directions. It will walk you through the whole process, so just follow along. In no time at all, you’ll have your very own copy of the SP3 on CD. All your friends will be jealous!
