    dunno if this is related to mugatu's prob, but i had xp install freezes when i was using a geforce2mx. i replaced it with an old TNT2, installed, then after everything was complete i removed the TNT2 and put the geforce2mx back in.

    Microsoft admits the problem XP has with installing on certain computers but they really give no solution other than trying to install with a generic HAL - I haven't tried this yet, I am happy enough with win2k to bother

    :o I have a geforce2mx as well and have thought this might be the problem - but my parent's comp has the same video card and I had no problems installing XP on that.

    I might try swapping my card out with theirs to try one more time as maybe there are some differences :dunno:

    thanks for the tip though :)

    my gf2mx400 had no problem installing. :dunno:

    mines by asus, and not a generic one though. could make a difference.

    I just installed SP3 on 8 machines at work. I think we are going to wait a few months before releasing it.
