Last night, I decided to bring a PC online that had been an offline gaming system for a year or so. Naturally, I was quite excited to see XP SP3 available from Windows Update.

Much to my dismay, upon restarting, my machine went into continuous reboots. So I rolled back using System Restore.

Much to my surprise and pleasure, I noted that Microsoft had, apparently in response to several issues, like continuous rebooting, revised SP3.

Ah-HA! Victory is mine! I excitedly went back, redownloaded and reinstalled SP3.

And now?

Continuous rebooting. Again.
