      The biosinfo.inf file on my XP box with SP2, has a date of 8/3/2004.
      This indicates that the file was updated when I installed SP2.

      You could attempt to extract the file from the SP2 cab file, or copy it over from another PC running XP.

      You can download a copy of biosinfo.inf here:

      http://www.dynamiclink.nl/htmfiles/rframes/info_inf/info_b/16.htm

      This problem usually occurs with hardware conflicts. You should still be able to boot into safe mode. You could also try unplugging any extenal components like printers, cd’s or usb peripherals (alot of times it’s the cd causing this).

      Don’t quote me on this but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night!

      Cheers.
