    Im upgrading my Server 2003 with Service Pack 2 and its giving me a message that "C:\Windows\System32\symmpi.sys
    That your computer vendor installed this file on your computer. Do you want Service pack 2 setup to replace this file?

    Does anyone have any ideas on how I should proceed....?:confused:

    Do not replace the file. The manufacturer of your machine specially customized this file to work best with your hardware. Before proceding you should consult the manufacturers website first.

    One time I did replace the file and: BLUE SCREEN, had to reinstall machine :mad:
