It has been a long time since I re-installed Windows and this machine has starting doing some strange things, I would like to re-install windows but the Disk that came with the machine is for SP 2 and will not install, it says, "cannot continue because the version on this computer is newer that the one on this disk".
If you click Quit the application will close immediately" If may suggest, you might download and run 'Process Explorer' ( ) and determine what process or module is causing your lags and lockups before you do a nuke & pave.
I went ahead and clicked continue and downloaded SP3 Checked Build as you described and then clicked install and got this error, "SP3 setup cannot update a checked (debug) system with a free (retail) version of SP3 or vice versa.
Tony, I downloaded and installed n Lite as you said and created the folder XPSP3 on my desktop now where do I get the highlight/copy/paste all files on the disk to the XPSP3 folder?
When I clicked next twice it started and the I got a pop up that says "Unhandled exception has occurred in your application If you Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue.
At this point, please rebuild WMI Repository and re-test the issue. Best to wipe or nuke the HD and do a clean install of SP2. I don't know what else we can do to help folks move on. Open n Lite Click Next Hermit, I realize it should be close to the bottom in ADD/Remove Programs but it is NOT there and my specs show it IS installed.I guess I am going to have to do a clean install as most of you have suggested.If you fon't have an image then suggest you think about Hermitt's recommendation May need to work on that HD a bit before the Clean Install. The XP Machine Drivers are also readily available from Dell. [quote]This Topic is one Big "Fiasco".[/quote] I couldn't agree more, Rick. What it will do is destroy any and all data/personal files on the hard drive when you install a FRESH copy of Windows XP with SP2. I tried to launch CMC while it is still stuck on that and i am able to log in to CMC and do everything.
