While attempting a repair install, I booted with my Windows XP CD and chose the option to Repair
from the instructions in the link.
After the files were copied, the system reboots into the Windows XP Installation
Screen. From there it tells me 'Setup will complete in 39 minutes'.
Although the information screen to the right does change ( Try the Easiest Windows Yet, Stay up to Date,
Your computer will be faster and more reliable), the countdown remains at 39 minutes and freezes.
I used a Windows XP Service Pack 2 Professional disk. My Computer has Service Pack Three.
I've read somewhere that if you have Service Pack 3 on your computer you cannot do a repair install with Service Pack 2.
I have an error code from the Setuperr.log:
Setup had problems registering the following OLE control DLL:
Contact your system administrator, who may provide assistance in diagnosing this problem.
The signature for Windows XP Professional Upgrade is invalid. The error code is 80096001.
A system-level error occurred while verifying trust.
Setup failed to install the product catalogs. This is a fatal error. The setup log files should contain more information.
