If my computer came with only SP1, shoudl I get a copy of Pro with SP1 or should it work with SP2?

And if I have a copy that auto-installs a working code, does it really matter if I use my own code?

Asking for Serial numbers for software here is NOT OK. It's illegal.

I have no clue. Honestly, I've never installed an OS with a product key different than the one it came with.

If the comp came w/ SP1, get Pro SP2 as long as you can get the drivers you need. My old laptop came with XP Home SP1 and I installed XP Pro SP2 (with a valid product key for that installation) and it worked fine b/c the OS had all the drivers I needed. You may end up having to download a few drivers if you find things like your soundcard or NIC don't work. SP2 won't do anything to the comp. b/c even if you have SP1 you can (and definitely should) download SP2. The service pack is not going to make a difference and you should always be running the latest.
