  1. After installing SP2 it wont boot past the slash before it locks up. It wont let me boot from the floppy or cd ( goes straight to splash screen). I have tried using F8, F10, F12, tab, & del to try and get me into the bios to change the boot order, with negative results. #1 what is causing this or what caused this? #2 HOW DO I FIX IT???

    tap del key

    Shut it off. As soon as you push the power button start tapping the "del" key. with some luck it will get you to the BIOS. What MB/BIOS or what brand computer?
