Re: SP2 upgrade
I had that happen once to me also. When I did it, the file download for sp2 was corrupted during the download process. When I downloaded it again and installed it once more, it worked fine for me. Just make sure that when you install it, let it do its thing. Make sure all programs are closed and let it restart your computer for you. That way it has a better chance in succeeding in the install process.
If you have a friend that has your OS with sp2 already with the disk, I would try to borrow it and place your cd key into it if you dont want to risk the "blue screen of death" again.
The CD will have a 99.9 % Perfect Outcome compared to risking the sp2 upgrade might crash during the install.
