I started a clean install of windows xp with sp2 and before it loads for the first time to install it freezes on the windows logo screen. It doesn't start in safe mode either. I already had xp installed on my computer before and worked just fine, but it wasn't a legal copy so I couldn't download SP2. Now with this new CD it won't get past the logo screen.
The only piece of hardware I have that is more than a year old is my video card which I suspect might not be compatible with the driver compatibility program, however it worked with my previous windows setup. Is there that big a difference with SP2 that now it would completely halt the system?
