Default Re: Warning: XP SP3 will not load on Asus M2N based boards

crap i installed sp3, didn't see this thread and now i get a bluescreen on boot.

it says something about my BIOS not being ACPI compliant...yadda yadda press F7 during boot to disable. any ideas?

do i need to format and start over?

edit: LOL in order to get it to work i had to plug in a USB flashdrive over 2gb. i put in my 16gb flash drive and it booted up/finished installing without a hitch. way to go microsoft haha. but i have to have it plugged in on every startup. anyone know of a more permanent fix?
