I installed XP home from an AMD image to an Intell system. It seemed to go fine,windows was activated and I finished installing drivers and programs. I installed SP3 and started to have problems with an occasional blue screen and reboot. I searched online for " XP Home reboot " and found referance to the same problem but in reverse. INTEL TO AMD in sp3 when intelppm.sys tries to load and the AMD system doesnt recognize it. I managed to get the computer to load windows and removed sp3. Now I dont get a blue screen but it continualy reboots. I cant even get into safe mode. I dont want to use the restoration program because I am afraid it wont recognize the new mother board and CPU.

So let me get this right. You changed computers from an AMD based system to an Intel system... correct?

SP3 must have been thoroughly confused.

You'll need your Windows CD. Do a 'repair' so the hardware will be properly identified.
