r. Proffit aka Bob is the XP master...he will be with you in a second
Step son's PC, a home built (by me) AMD 1.6 MHz, half a Gig of RAM running XP Home. Running perfectly until I tried to install SP3. The update appeared to go well, then it wanted to reboot as normal. On the reboot I get a BIOS message that an 80 pin Primary IDE channel cable is missing. Then it continues to the Windows XP splash screen, then reboots. Tried in Safe Mode, upon choosing Safe Mode, or Safe Mode with Networking, or Last known good config, it gets to the Windows splash screen, and reboots.
