Hp xw8200 xp sp3

hi, after installing XP SP3 on my xw8200 dual xeon, SAS HDD, 4GB RAM system, windows doesnt start up properly. It hangs after the welcome screen, showing desktop background and nothing else.

HDD are working every second like a clock, but nothing happens, taskmanager doesnt show up after ctrl-alt-del, but numlock is working, so PC is not freezed.

Starting in safe mode works, everything is fine there. Disabling all startup programs doesnt change anything.

Any idea someone? Any known issues?
