install SP2 on win xp Home

Guest

Windows XP Home. Tried to installed SP2 from CD, that failed. The system had
the update of SP2 in system tray, tried to install it that way. Failed again.
Then a different update was available (security detections tool), installed
ok. Tried the SP2 from CD again, system restarted on its own in the middle of
extracting the files. When starting back up error... Stop: c0000135 winsrv
was not found. Winows will not start.
Select to boot to safe mode won't work, system will restart and back to Stop
0135 error. Tried the fix MS says in Recovery console using
cd $ntservicepackuninstall$\spuninst at the prompt, says file not found.
Tried to install OS using repair, goes through loading files, then sytem
will loop, the bios screen, Window XP screen, then repeats itself.

Any other ideas I could try? Thanks!

When SP2 failed,what took place...You might open event viewer for details
to it.Also youre microsoft "fix" is incorrect for registry repair if thats
the
problem,try kb:307545 and or,314058 From here id 1st try recovery,in
recovery type:CHKDSK C: /R If all else fails,boot to xp cd,install
xp,select:
"repair this copy" you only loose updates.

I would open Event Viewer if I could get to it. The OS is not loading. I also
did boot to xp cd and installed using the repair, it loads the files, then it
just keeps rebooting.
I will look into the other kb's and my next step was using the CHKDSK. You
said my "fix" was incorrect, I was using my error code - Stop: c0000135
winsrv was not found. All suggestions lead to the same article ID 885523.

This system worked before trying to install SP2, but it would restart on its
own on occassion. The automatic download updates was turned on, and SP2 was
downloaded, you would think the computer would be fine because Microsoft says
its ready and downloaded it automatically.

You receive a "Stop: c0000135" and "winsrv was not found" error message
after you install Windows XP Service Pack 2

There could be an underlying hardware issue. No idea what. The health of
RAM can be checked with tools. Faulty power supply comes to mind with
sudden restarts as well. Wouldn't hurt to check the health of the hard
drives as well.

The MSKB article that discusses the STOP error refers to adware and/or the
need to install Critical Update 885523 as a source for that problem. I
posted a link to the article earlier but reading deeper into this thread, I
see that you've already found it on your own.

So you may have two issues going on: the order of install (or needing to
get rid of the ad components from TVMedia). And possibly a slight hardware
problem - one that doesn't scream the name of the offending component but
enough of a problem that there have been unwanted restarts in the past.

Thanks for your responce. I did notice a strange noise when trying to boot
up. After reading your suggestion to a harware issue, I open up the computer
and listened while starting it up. The noise was coming from one of the
CDdrives. I removed the cables from both cd drives, the floppy and second HD.
Now I was able continue loading the OS. Since I had started reloading the OS
with a repair, I shut down and switched the cd drives around, and continued
with the repair. There is still a issue with I believe the OS, but now I can
backup data, and reformat with a fresh copy. Thanks again!

Well, you're not out of the woods yet but at least you're headed in the
right direction. Good luck to you!
