SP3 - mine now works - 4th attempt
I have a HP Pavillion with AMD chip. It went through the reboot process. I did the research (after the mandatory swearing and row with wife) and there is existing info about intelppm on the MS website - they describe it as an unsupported configuration.
Eventually I used the Recovery Console to disable Intelppm and all is now well.
So HP sold me a machine with a crap installation - they deserve all the grief they get.
Microsoft didn't bother to test on an HP machine with an AMD CPU or to put in code to check for unsupported configurations - what sort of test plan is that?
I don't think that AMD deserve any of the grief - shame that they are getting it. I bet Intel are loving every minute of it.
NO - NO stop I take it all back - Intel paid HP and Microsoft and it is all a cunning plan to increase market share - we need either proof or counter example but it is a great theory. The arrival of the black helicopters is all the proof I need.
