I downloaded the 255MB version off the net before, and it installed perfectly. It even fixed a couple issues I had before. So far it's running fast and stable. Seems good to me.

Have yourself a known good - verified backup-restore

Scheme in place first- ( Ghosted image-or whatever )I've had one machine do the endless boot/loop-tried repair install, twice got bad_pool_caller messages, hosed the partition out-restored from ghost image, breathed a sigh of relief-this one can wait a few weeks before I try again-but others of same MB /CPU-etc work fine after SP2- ( Intel 865 Mb-P4's @2.8Ghz...)May try a clean install of bare XP pro, then U/G to sp2 in one leap...
