hello all,
I see there was a post about a patch for XP with AMD? The topic is called closed now, but I do have AMD and wanted to know in what instance might I need this patch?

My system is acting a bit odd after I installed Service pack 3, but I have no way of knowing if these are related issues or not. Can anyone tell me when I may need the patch----system is slow to load to the desktop. Thanks, Nan.

That patch appears to be needed to prevent continuous reboot and it should be installed before installing SP3

I have two AMD processors and had no problem.

If you read some of the links...you will see that it is inappropriately termed by some to be an AMD problem when it really is a problem with the way that certain boxmakers included an Intel file in disk images they used to install SP3 on AMD systems.

The particular vendor pointed out in what I read was HP.

I interpret that to mean that...if I don't have an HP system with an AMD processor...I need to look for other explanations of any problems I might experience.

I have two AMD processors and had no problem, along with thousands/millions of others...because we don't fit the narrow parameters I discussed in my interpretation.
