Tried to install srvice pack 2 several times now. Every time i get a blue screen and unmountable boot volume error. Wont boot in any mood. Fresh install to revive computer. So, do i really need the damn thing?
In my opinion its a good update to have and worth persevering with,but there is nothing that says you have to have it that bit is up to you. the error you get is probably because your boot.ini file is corrupt if you can boot to the XP cd and when you see the Welcome to setup press the letter R You will get a dos prompt Then type "chkdsk /p" without the quotes and hit enter When that is done type "fixboot" and hit enter "Y" and enter at the prompt Then type "exit" and hit enter The system should now reboot into Windows.
