    Hello:

    As MS anounced end of life for Win XP SP1/SP2, I would like to know if a PC
    that has WinXP SP1 should be upgraded to SP2 before applying SP3, or if I can
    apply directly SP3 on SP1 without SP2.

    Thanks

    If WinXP SP1 is installed, you can skip SP2.

    That being said, did you just do a "clean install" of WinXP SP1 or...?

    Actually it is just for backup, since there is one PC in the office which
    originally had XP sp1, just in case it needed a future full reinstallation,
    could I skip SP2?

    Yes you can skip SP2. SP3 contains all the updates included with SP2
    and the update released until the date the SP3 was released.
