Just thought I would throw this out and see if any of the rest of you have any experience with this. After upgrading to SP2 (winXP Pro) I have been unable to sucessfully run the "Repair Install" option. (found previous version of WinXP....choose R to repair the installed version of Windows). After completing the Repair install the coputers just go into a loading windows-> Reboot mode->loading windows-> reboot mode. I have tried this with a slipstreamed XP pro+SP2 bootable disk (This particular copy I made will do a clean install of WinXP pro + SP2 perfectly...just won't do the Repair install) I have tried the Repair install on 3 different computers with the same result--constant reboot when trying to start windows. ... and trying to boot into safemode does not work either. (basically I have to solve the problem by doing another CLEAN Install...which then works perfectly...go figure--> I will miss not having the Repair install option when I really screw things up...Oh well... Just wonder if any of you might have some insight into this.
