If you install Windows XP SP2, or upgrade Windows XP to SP2, after the restart when the GUI mode finishes, your computer hangs at the Windows XP logo screen with:

Please wait…

This behavior occurs if you computer uses the C3 800MHz and Eden ESP 3000/4000/5000/6000 Samuel2 Family=6 Model=7 VIA processor or the C3 1.0GHz Ezra-T Family=6 Model=8 VIA processor.

To workaround this behavior:

1. Restart your computer to that SP2 Setup can continue.

2. Start /Run / CMD / OK.

3. Type CHKDSK /F and Press Enter.

4. If prompted, schedule the CHKDSK for the next restart.

NOTE: You can prevent this behavior by upgrading to Windows Media Player 10 before applying SP2.
