Hi,

You should be able to install xp sp2 without a sp3 cd. It sounds like your cd is damaged somehow. Maybe it received some deep scratches? reply

Hmm,

It’s hard for me to determine what is wrong then. Is this an original Windows XP SP2 disc, or some cracked/illegal copy?

Also have you considered cleaning you CD/DVD drive on your PC? I think you can get CD/DVD cleaner sets that will help you with this. reply
