After you install Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), and then you restart your computer, the Windows XP splash screen that appears does not display the complete version information about your operating system. For example, the splash screen may only display Microsoft Windows XP instead of any of the following:
Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition
This behavior is by design. All editions of Windows XP use the same splash screen.
