Uninstall sp3,
take hdd to another machine,
recover the files and programes you want to save,
back them up on disk,ie,external drive or dvd data stores 4.7b gb per disk,
format start again and only load xp sp2.
Xp sp3 has bug fixes apparantly,lol
why fix some thing if its not broken I say.

Windows xp installion does not see my hard drive on Panasonic CF-74

Just a thought but are you using XP Pro SP2 or SP3?

In my experience, only XP Service Pack 3 will see your
Hard Disk Drive, not XP Service Pack 2.

Good Luck!

Aspire 1640z windows xp can I load sp 3 or is sp 2 the limit for this PC

You should be able to get XP 32-bit SP3 added. However, Windows Update will not work with XP SP2. Thus you will need to manually download the update and then install it. This is the link to the update: . Click on the Download button. This is the version usually used for computers that aren't on a network.

I hope this helps.

(the Acer 1640z came with XP SP2; most computer companies support all of the service packs for their originally installed OS.)

Hi, i have a thinkpad 600e with corrupted os (missing ntldr for sp2). i tried repairing with cd but cd wont boot (cd is bootable though). it keeps restarting. my boot sequence is already set to cd first....

Try to reinstall only the service pack.
What OS are you using?
visit Microsoft's downloads center and download service pack 2 for your OS i.e, Windows XP or Windows 7, then reinstall.
That should fix the problem

Thank you for using Fixya,
