Problem installling Windows xp SP2 with P4VMA-M Mainboard

Hi

My mom has a P4VMA-M Mainboard but I don't remember which version it is. The problem is that I'd tried to install windows xp with service pack 2 but after the instalation when the pc reboots, it stops when it's charging windows, in the image of "Widows" with the black background.
I'd also tried installing sp2 over windows xp wit sp1, and happens the same thing.

Can you help me please?
Thank you

If your trying to install it over the current installation then select Format at the installation screen of XP setup. In order to do that you would have to boot from the disc, that way you don't have to load windows. Also when you have completed and installed XP, try to locate some software to detect what drivers you need. I use driver detective and it worked fine for me, or alternately send me a message and ill run you through how to check the motherboard for the version manually.

Hi,

There is no "key" for SP3, its just an update.

Just click on the start menu and perform a Windows/Microsoft Update to install SP3 and then perform another update to update SP3.
