XP Upgrade loops after requesting the XP2 disk
Posted on 2009-02-12
System: IBM Itellistation 6850M, xenon 2.2, 1GB RAMBUS 800-45. W2K is on a PATA drive and there are four additional SCSI 160 Ultra3 drives.
Upgrading to XP Pro. Load goes well through the first CD then the system asks for "Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 CD" and press "Enter".
I have tried three solutions:
1 - CD with WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe at e:\
2 - CD with the files from WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe at e:\
3 - CD with the files from WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe in e:\i386 on the CD
Obviously something the updataer is looking for is missing, either a file or structure.
Does anyone have a clue?
