This has been a very very strange problem.
When ever i install any service pack update on my WindowsXp (home or pro, tried it on both). After the service pack 1 or 2 is installed when i restart the computer, it freezes on "loading Xp".
I seem to have tried everything i format my HDD, install a fresh copy of any winXp do the same thing and it happens again. Just freezes on loading.
I can't access Safe Mode at all as well.
I also can't seem to boot windows2003 server or linux fedora, or windows2000 - i tried installing them instead of XP. I can't boot any windows except XP and XP doesn't want to patch?
Anyone have any ideas about this? Maybe a bios update?
I also have legit copies of all windows products.
