Windows XP Infinite Reboot Loops and Page File in Unattended Windows 2000/XP/2003 Posted August 8, 2008 This particular problem has me quite scrambled as I don't really understand it. I requested a friend of mine in IT to send me his version of XP Pro via FedEx and it came today. I installed it. It comes with IE7 and other Microsoft stuff including Alexa which I will manually get rid of. But it installed Flawlessly on my Compaq Presario SR5350F while my original XP Pro I bought in 2001 fails during the install along with my backup copy. Also I am unable to buy a brand new XP now so I'm using this copy from my friend with my own license and it seems to have worked. I am still boggled by the fact that it is a gamble to install XP with Service Pack 3 or to update XP to SP3. A lot of my NLite creations did not work except 1. I made 30 installations in total looking back at all my wasted CD-Rs. So definitely this is a bug which can sometimes appear. I believe Microsoft is playing dirty here for some reason and XP refuses to install customized. Rather they want you to use IE7, Alexa and other stuff that comes with it. This push for Vista is entirely unnecessary when a lot of us can simply do our jobs with what we are familiar with. I have nothing against Vista but XP and Office 2003 cost money and get the job done, so why move onto something that may or may not work? Thanks for posting guys. Have a great one. Best of luck with Windows XP and Service Pack 3. If anyone has any problems, please be sure to ask me as I have struggled quite a bit and have learned a few things in the process. In the end, as a customer, it is our responsibility to let the vendor know what we want or don't want since it is our hard earned money and we expect these things to work. 75% success rate is quite low for a service pack according to what I have heard. It should be closer to 95%.
