Vista SP1 After service pack installation i get a continuous reboot
Posted on 2008-10-19
I have a Dell Vostro 1500 with Intel Centrino chipset and Windows Vista OS.
After installing SP1 i can no longer use the laptop. Everytime i start it up i get the message 'Installing Service Pack: Stage 3 of 3 - Do not turn off your computer'. Once this is complete the laptop shuts down, reboots and i get the same all over again.
I've researched this issue on the internet and it seems there is a problem if you have HP/AMD chipset. I have Intel.
Anyone got any solutions ?
I cant get into safe mode either ! On one occasion it did manage to boot successully into window, but when i rebooted later on i got the same 'Installing Service Pack: Stage 3 of 3 - Do not turn off your computer'.
