i reinstalled xp home on my toshiba satellite a105...this originally had xp media center...i did this once before last year.... i found a tech guy that explained in detail what file to copy to the desktop and rename the file extension or something (see i didnt save the site and i dont remember all the steps)...after i followed his instructions, i went to a windows update and sp2 installed smoothly this time instead of hanging in the 'verifing configuration' phase.... does anybody else know about this trick?
I don't know of any rename trick but I do know that XP SP2 will not install on older hardware because it does not have the drivers. I install a XP SP1 first or a 2000 first then upgrade to SP2. Do you have a SP1 CD around.
