OK I know strictly speaking this is more a Q & A type thingLocked
But I thought I’d throw it open for general discussion to see how others here would deal with this problem which is becoming more of a problem every day now.
A couple of days ago I assembled and loaded a Notebook for a customer who had one stolen. Well so far no real problems until it came to the OEM version of XP Pro that was supplied it was the new Service Pack 2 version and the makers of the Notebook chassis have already told me not to consider installing SP2 until they have done a lot more testing.
Well I just supplied the SP2 version and loaded a volume license version of XP Pro and while strictly speaking this is not following the MS agreement I didn’t see that I had any other choice because SP2 doesn’t work on this unit at present and there currently is not projected date for a new BIOS becoming available.
Now I’m wondering how others here would address this problem.
Anyone wish to comment?
