Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I have a CD of Windows XP Service Pack 2... I am unable to install it...first, I boot from the CD to copy all those "required files",then, the computer restarts,saying that the windows setup will start now...
it shows "Installing Devices",then,I set the password,local time, etc.
Then,it shows "Installing Devices"...this step is almost completed,when a blue screen error message pops up,saying"IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"...what to do?
Tips for a great answer:
Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the delete or F2 key
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system
note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults
after windows has loaded
your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd
if your installation disk is only a service pack 1 or 2 you might need to create an xp sp3 disk
if you have a copy of windows service pack there is a program that allows you add service pack 3 to it so you have a copy of xp sp3
hope this helps
