    It seems that the SP2 installer is corrupt, did u try any other installer ???

    @nishant_nms

    Trouble in installing SP2 doesn't necessarily mean that the XP is pirated, and similarly installability of SP2 doesn't mean that the XP is original.
    People with half a brain won't find any trouble with XP (whether pirated or not), SP2 and the Windows update (having WGA check).

    Is the CD you copied from your friend a CD containing SP2 for Windows XP or is it a Windows XP installation CD with SP2 integrated? Please clarify... In the second case, we are dealing with piracy... so discussion on that is not allowed... If you got a Service Pack CD copy, it is possible the CD did not burn properly, so try to get the original and try to install with it...

    BTW, could you post the detailed error message... Is the missing file name mentioned?
