When you install sp2 there is an uninstall option in the Add/Remove Programs dialog. With a pc that came with sp2 pre-installed they probably did it from a slipstreamed installation (sp2 directly installed with the xp installation) and there's no way to uinstall it.

Gotta ask. Why do you think that you need to uninstall SP1.

If you do an inplace upgrade with a XP cd that is SP1 of lower you will revert back to no updates.

How to do that here.

Good Luck Lee
