For all you stubborn bastards who don't use XP
- I'll probably wait a couple of days to make sure there's no problems.
damnit, i just did sp3 last night (after my recover)
I decided to install it anyway - no problems yet
i just formatted and went xp for the 1st time tonight. gonna give it the summer to prove itself
XP refuses to install on this PC - I have tried numerous times but I just get a blank screen after reboot
this seems to happen to quite a few people - including some others on here
You need to 4ax0r it.
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
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
thanks for the tip though
my gf2mx400 had no problem installing.
mines by asus, and not a generic one though. could make a difference.
I should buy a new video card anyway - this one's getting a little long in the tooth
I just installed SP3 on 8 machines at work. I think we are going to wait a few months before releasing it.
