Hi, I tried to update one of my computers to Service Pack 2 and it said it failed, so it tried to revert the changes back, but it took too long and I canceled the reverse the changes. And when I restarted the computer, it just doesn't load, you see the Windows XP bootup screen, but after 5 minutes of the boot screen the computer just restarts and continually does it. I would like to know how I can fix it. Thanks.

It looks like you may have to reinstall the whole OS if the repair feature on the XP Install disk don't work.

Boot into Safe Mode if you can and do a System Restore.

When you get to the screen that has the menu to choose Safe Mode there may be an option to select "Last Known Good Configuration". If so try that.
