Endless loop after upgrade

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

Hi newsgroup,
I've tried to upgrade my stable WinXP installation (before SP 1!) with WinXP
+ SP2.
I reached a Warnig about a TV-Card-driver (Haupauge), wich has noct the
Windows XP Logo.
I've select continue, because in the installed version I have had no
problems with it.
After the restart the system tires to load and install many files and after
aprox 10 minutes it will come to reset without any warnigs or messages.
If the machine startet again, Windows will check any drives and state, that
it has no errors and start the install process again - till the next silent
crash & restart.
This will go on and on.
It is a multi OS machine, with Win98SE & Win2000 (wich both start without
problems), so all drives are reachable.
What can I do ?

Thanks in advance.

Peter

    Take out the tv card anyway and see if that helps. You can always reinstall
    it later.(if it's compatible with sp2)

    Thanks for response and sorry for my delay in answer.
    I've tried it, but the result is the same :-(
    I've also tried it with F8 and Bootlog, but nothing happens.
    What can I do, to see, where the crash happens ?

    Thnaks.

    I've found the log - it was NTBTLOG.TXT in the Windows directory !
    And then I renamed one by one the last drivers, which I see in this file and
    - voila ! - the 3. in the list was the guilty one. A DSL-Driver from a
    DSL-Modem,
    wich was not more in use !
    After this actions the setup runs without any problem to its end and the
    machine
    is full in use again.
