  1. :edit: Apparently theres a sticky on exactly this... dumb me

    K, im having a problem every time i try to boot windows xp, it get stuck on the loading screen but the little blue bar continues to move back and forth. Last thing i was doing was installing service pack 2 (most likely what caused the problem) and halfway through the installation i got an access denied error message. Any help would be greatly appreciated on how to resolve this. Also my computer wont let me boot in any safe mode or with the last known config. When i try to boot in safe mode it gets stuck at MUP.sys. Again, any suggestions are appreciated.
