How do I backup my service packs and updates. microsoft will no longer have updates for service pack 1. My cumputer is up to date, but my laptop i just restored and found out in order to used service pack 2 you have to have service pack 1. and if I need to restore my desktop I don't want to spend a week waiting for update just to find I'm not going to get all I need to run different programs like IE9. If you can help me please do. I tryed to burn to dvd and get it backup to my passport that I use for my desktop.
