SQLServer 2008 SP 1 & 2

I have installed Sql Server 2008 dev on my dev laptop a few months ago. I don't remember if I have installed SP1. Today as I ran Windows Update, I saw SP2 as optional update. Can I go ahead install SP2 without checking and installing SP1 first? Please advise.
Thanks.

yes, you can go ahead by instaling SQL Server 2008 SP2.
Its advised to stay upto date with Latest Service packs for SQL Server..

>> Can I go ahead install SP2 without checking and installing SP1 first?

Since SP2 is cumulative, installing SP2 would install all of the updates contained in SP1

I accidentally closed off the browser during the install, then reran the operation. Now I am seeing the install percentage incrementing. Is it OK?

The downloading appears to be painfully slow. Can I abort it now and do it over again later?
