Hi I just bought a new computer without windows XP casue my uncle has a disk that I used all the time for my old computer. Its a Microsoft license disk with Windows Xp Professional with service pack 1. Was made october 2002. Here are my computer Specs. CPU AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4600+ Socket AM2 Memory 1024 MB DDR II 667 Memory 240 Pin (Kingston) (1024 x 1) (on sale) Mother Board ASUS M2N4-SLI Mother Board Hard Drive 1 Western Digital 160GB 7200RPM 8MB Cache Serial ATA II Optical Drive 1 LG 18X DVD RW +- Dual Layer Video nVidia eVGA 7600 GT KO PCI-E 256MB TV-Out DVI Audio Onboard Audio Network Card Onboard Network Card Case E-18H ATX Deluxe Case Power Supply 550 Watt Optimax Dual Fan Power Supply Anyway I get my new computer the other day and put windows XP in and go through all the motions...and then it says it is going to reboot in 10 seconds or whatever. So it does that but when it reboots up when it goes to the Windows XP professinal loading page it just keeps loading for ever....like it does not stop ive let it sit for 45 miniutes and it just keeps loading trying to go to desktop.....but it cant. I was told that this was becasue I did not have windows XP Service pack 2 and then a few other people told me NO its becasue you do not have a 64 bit operating system. So what I would like to know is if there is anyway around this? like buying a copy of windows is basically out of the question casue I spent all my money on the computer. Is there anything else I could possibly do? Or was is told wrong information and if I was could someone please clear this up? Please help I have had this computers for 3 days and I cant use it... Thanks.
