We have the Windows XP SP2 x64 ISO ready to download with just a few clicks. This Windows XP ISO file was taken directly from Microsoft’s official website before it was taken down because its support period was ending on Jul 13, 2010.

Service Pack 2 (SP2) is the latest available update for Win XP Pro 64-bit and it includes previous major updates like SP1 in it.

Note: Win XP 64-bit does not have access to Service Pack 3, to download WinXP with Service Pack 3 you will have to download the 32-bit version of Windows XP Pro.

Bottom Line

The Windows XP download and instructions provided on this page will let you install XP on any PC you want with ease.

As a side note, we recommend that you upgrade your OS to Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, or Windows 11 (if your PC hardware supports it). We say this because WinXP is outdated in 2024 and lacks many updates and security features that are available in the latest versions of Windows.
