So I made the mistake (at least right now I think so) of installing SP2 over a current XP pro installation. Now when I boot the boot loader menu is gone (all there is is a black screen in its place). I have gone into the "startup and recovery" dialog box and the two boxes for display for x amout of time are checked.
the other problem I am having is that sometimes the computer will crash and auto restart (not predictably reproducable, started as soon as I got sp2 installed). But it will get past the bios junk and then just look at me funny with a blank screen. if I turn the system off, and unplug it and then wait 5 minutes it will finally boot again. This is the second problem that started the minute SP2 was done installing.
does anyone have any ideas how to fix this?
