I've been trying without success to get SP 3 to work on my machine, Microsoft says it is probably due to my AMD processor, have any of you encountered such a problem and if so how to rectify it..


Many Thanks Guys!

Hi hogndog......

I remember there was an issue with some HP computers and SP3 for XP.
But it wasn't a CPU problem....it was the way HP and several other OEMs configured Windows for AMD CPU powered
systems.


This applies to HP machines:

This issue was brought up when SP3 first came out and there should be several threads on it at TSG


I have an Acer with an AMD and there was no issue installing SP3.

Thanks Stoner, I'll see about those threads, if I had it my way I'd avoid it all together, I've talked to others that say they've had problems with that build..
