  1. Hi, I am new here.
    I found that there was nice help on the forum so I decided to post my problem.

    Ok first of all this morning I formatted my whole computer.
    Then I reinstall my Windows XP all goes perfectly.
    Install drivers... Internet...
    Then I go on to download the Windows Xp update... 59 installed. Reboot : 15 sec prefect and fast loading.
    Once loaded I return on microsoft site to download SP2. Download, Install..
    And then guess what. Stuck on loading screen! Yeah I get teh status bar rolling non stop! Makes about an hour from now... If any of you know why?

    Really seems to be caused by Sp2... cuz my comp is about empty :S

    I tryied Safe mode and last known good config.. And nothing seems to work.
    And btw it's a legal and bootable cd... not OEM.

    Thank you for help!

    Well my best bet is to do the install/reformat over and don't update windows to sp2.
