Hi

I'm trying to upgrade a P4 laptop from SP1 to SP2.

However, each time I install it the laptop blue screens during the reboot
and I get a bugcheck error

STOP: 0x0000009C (0x00000000,0x8054DA70,0xA2000000,0x8C010400)

I've seen a similar error in german reported on
http://www.msusenet.com/history/topic.php/1869416505-1.html - but sadly
no-ones replied.

Does anyone have any idea how I can solve this problem? I really want to
install SP2 in order to install other Microsoft products.

Help!

First go to the laptop mftr.'s website and see what patches, comments
they have about upgrading to SP2 on your specific model. That may
answer the question right there. Otherwise, I would contact their tech
support people as this may be a known issue with your model and they
will know the workaround/solution. Laptops are *very* proprietary, both
with their hardware and software.
