    I have followed at least a dozen links to 'Download SP1a' only to find there
    is no such option on the linked page. A search of the MicroSoft site gets me
    the same lack of information.

    Please, a link that works to the 133MB (not a quick link that later invokes
    a large download) XP SP1a would be very much appreciated.

  2. Greetings,

    Any particular reason why you want SP1 instead of 2 or 3?

    SP1 (or 1a, which is just the same thing without Java) isn't available anymore from the
    official Microsoft site nor is supported and in fact a lot of applications won't install
    without at least SP2 (latest IE and Messenger come to mind).

    Amusingly I just deleted my original copy of the SP1 installation program just a month or so
    ago too.

    SP3 installs all updates right up to approximately April 2008 so why you are
    looking for something that isn't even supported anymore is weird to say the
