Hi Guys,

My other laptop is attempting to do this. First two stages fine but getting stuck on stage 3. Won't get past 0% and will not boot into anything other than this screen and is driving me mad!! Any ideas? Thanks

Please clarify which screen.

Also do you really mean SP3?

XP has SP3

Vista has SP2

See MS here

Sorry must be SP2 - am thinking of XP I think! What do you mean by screen? It's a 15.6" if that's any help refreshing about 85 hertz
