Windows XP Service Pack 3 endless boot fix available!

If you have installed Windows XP Service Pack 3 recently on your AMD PC and you got an endless rebooting look then a Microsoft worker has the fix for you however it has to be istalled prior to installing SP3, so you will have to unistall it again beforehand, install the patch and run the SP3 installation again.

Microsoft officially has confirmed the bug but not supplied a fix yet.

I just tried the amd patch before loading sp3. Woe is me. At the end of the load, I received an access denied message and a further message indicating that windows had not been completely restored. To say the least. It took me two or three hours to undo the mess deposited on my drive by sp3. Stay away, AMD.

First of all: Happy New Year to you!

I am sorry for your experience... The Service Pack 3 has been re-released so installing the patch beforehand now is not necessary anymore. Doing so anyway can cause unpredictable side effects and problems.

I don't think so much that the fault is at AMD!
