New XP Update Oct 12th

By Rafiki ·
I had an icon to take a new update to SP2, which i followed through and at the reboot stage the notebook locked up with an error.
I don't have the error msg with me (at work), was this a good update and how do i get the notebook to start up and/or reboot ?

Last known good

by ccollins In reply to New XP Update Oct 12th

Have you tried last known good? if you haven't managed to log on yet and you have system restore enabled you should be able to go back to the way it was. I had an SP2 install which hung mid way but when I crashed out it did undo what it had done, so it is possible to go back.

If the notebook has an Intel CPU

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to New XP Update Oct 12th

It will be best to flash the BIOS as there are known timing issues between SP2 and Intel CPU's.

I've seen systems that get no further than just POSTing boot normally after a BIOS flash as it cures everything.
