Last time I installed XPsp2 my PC went in to a continuous startup loop and I had to do a fresh install of XP. Do I need to do anything prior to attempting SP2 install again? Evesham PC XPhome SP1, AMD athlon 64 3000+. Thanks.

Make sure there are no viruses, spyware etc. before installing SP2.

In the unlikely event that it goes pear shaped you can uninstall it using the Recovery Console click here
