My laptop recently started freezing shortly after I downloaded SP2 and it has
got to the point that I have to reload my original system disks. It likes to
read the first disk but it continually freezes while trying to load XP. It
was recommened that during the reload process I select Yes to the request to
partition the recovery. I never get the prompt. Should I be using safe mode
to reload xp and if so what commands should i follow?

More about : windows reload

Read the User's Guide that came with your laptop or visit the support
web site of the manufacturer to learn how to properly utilize the
recovery CDs to restore Windows XP.

Well we have tried all of the instructions so just wanted to know how to get
XP to load from some other process. Again none of this started until we
downloaded SP2. Can it be that much of a coincidence.?

You're original system disks are likely recovery disks as opposed to an
actual XP installation disk. These are customized disks and use a
proprietary routine. We could give you the instructions for using a retail
version of XP but those instructions won't work for recovery disks. If you
are having problems getting the manufacturer recovery disks to work, you
need to contact the system manufacturer for help.

Sometimes, changes such as the updates you installed make the system
unrecognizable to the recovery disks. Manufacturer's usually have methods
for getting the disks to see the system again as well as jump starting the
recovery routine that you currently are unable to initialize. Nonetheless,
the information will have to come from the system manufacturer.
