Windows XP Home Edition SP2 Re-Installation

SP 2 installation redundancy error

My computer crashed?  I had all the updates including SP2 on my computer.  However, for some reason my computer would not not let me boot the computer; not even in safe mode so that I could access administrator.  Completely frustrated, I reinstalled Windows XP with SP1, leaving the directory structure.  I did not format the HD as I needed many files that I couldn't access.  I got everything up and working well.

However, now when I try to re-install SP2, I get a "redundancy error."  I assume that this is because of some files or folders that are still on my HD.

I would appreciate any workable solution to resolving my problem of re-installing SP2.

CRC Error or redundancy error suggests that the SP2 installation file is corrupt. Download a new copy from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=049C9DBE-3B8E-4F30-8245-9E368D3CDB5A&displaylang=en
