XP's SP3 as a stand alone download


  • Mom has an OEM version of HP Home SP2 and only has dial-up in her area. Is there a way that I could download the XP3 update here on my PC (with my faster connection), burn it off and bring it to Mom to install? If so -Where to I find the link that will take me to the standalone SP3. I wouldn't directly be able to do it if it requires Windows Update because I'm running Linux.
    Any help would be appreciated.

  • You do a search of the Microsoft download site for: WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86.exe and download it.


    Or you can downlaod the ISO: xpsp3_5512.080413-2113_usa_x86fre_spcd.iso and use it.
