View Full Version : Xp Will not start

19-11-2004, 06:38 PM

I have an XP machine that will not boot XP, I have run boot logging and the NTBTLOG file says that most drivers after Mup.sys did not load.

When it boots it gets to the first XP screen then reboots and then nothing happens

Any Ideas?

Is the CPU in it a P4 Prescott??

There is a known issue with XP SP2 (if u have SP2 installed), with P4 Prescott CPU's. And I think its that MUP.sys file thats the problem file.

Ok. Umm goto http://www.microsoft.com and under search microsoft top right
type in 885626. This is to do with P4 Prescotts or Celeron D CPU's. BUT it might pay to install the fix if you can. See what happens

Is SP2 actually installed now? Or does it hang while SP2 is installing??

If the above doesnt work, l would type mup.sys hangs in windows xp in Google. Looks like this is a problem with some systems running XP.
