Small Business Server 2011 Migration Prep tool - SBS 2003 Service Pack 1 not installed


I am doing a migration from small business 2003 to small business server 2011 using the steps laid out here:


When I run the prep tool it says "Windows SBS 2003 Service Pack 1 not installed"  But if I right click "My comptuer" and select properties it says "Microsoft Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server Service Pack 2."

Plus when I read on how to install sp 1 I find a bunch of instructions that I know I did a while a go.

So, can I "acknowledge" the warnings and proceed with the migration prep tool and the answer file?

Thanks for your advice.

If under the add remove programs ,Small business server,SP1 is not showing up,then you need to install it.
SP2 is a windows server patch and does not include SBS 2003 updates.
So thinking that SP2 is a cumulative patch is misleading in this case.

Been there done that.
