    I have recently had a major system crash of my Windows XP on my
    Sony Vaio laptop. It is looking like I may have to re-install the whole
    system from my original Sony system CDs. The problem is that
    these disks are pretty old ( 2001 ). So my questions is: once
    installed, can the online Windows automatic update service smoothly
    and consistently bring the system up to date ( e.g. install service
    pack 2, SP 3, etc. in proper order ) or is this just too much to
    ask starting from such an old version ?

    thanks, Jim
