I would be very surprised if your harddrive is running at 32f--way too cool

I think your motherboard simply lacks the ability to sense two drives

As for the File Protection alert....how did you uninstall, then reinstall sp2?

I actually think you have an incomplete sp2 install for some reason...and it is possible the update fails because of it

Uninstall sp2 again, then download this version of sp2

http://www.microsoft...45-9e368d3cdb5a

it is a standalone install of sp2. Then run that one.

oh ok thx 4 the link gerry ill try it..oh crap i didnt know if you noticed or not but in the description it says this

DO NOT CLICK DOWNLOAD IF YOU ARE UPDATING JUST ONE COMPUTER: A smaller, more appropriate download is now available on Windows Update. The best way to ensure you get Windows XP Service Pack 2 is by turning on the Automatic Updates feature in Windows XP today. You can use our step-by-step instructions or, if you prefer, let us do it for you.

from that link..and i am only updating 1 comp..should i continue w/ this?

yes, download it....

I understand them not wanting to overload their servers, but the windows update clearly did not complete properly so let's try this one and see if problem 1 goes away

then we will work on problem 2
