I have Windows XP Professional installed on a machine with an Intel 865perl motherboard, P4 2.8E with Hyper-threading and 1 GB of RAM. I am currently using XP SP1, and Windows is installed on a SATA drive. When I go to the Windows Update site, SP2 is not listed as an available update. I downloaded SP2 from Microsoft and installed it.

When I rebooted my computer, it froze with the Windows XP logo. I tried rebooting many times and was unable to get to the logon screen. I tried safe mode and last known good configuration all with no success. I ended up having to restore a ghost image. Does SP2 not work with some hardware? Or does it not support SATA drives?
