    I recently needed to replace my motherboard. Now I'm not able to install SP2 with XP. I have tried the following http://support.microsoft.com/kb/873148/en-us several times, but to no avail I am still not able to update. I also tried looking in another thread I found here and there was a suggestion to use subinacl, but when I try to install that I get an error message saying the Windows installer could not be accessed.

    Any suggestions would be greatly apreciated as I'd like to get this problem resolved as quickly as possible.
