Nope. Well, not on that final install anyway. Nothing but 2.0.6 and an SP2 source. So God knows where it found room to go wrong. Pity he aint sharing the knowledge though.RogueSpear wrote:@Åmbrosius, are you running any third party firewall software? Or have a huge HOST file?
Anyway, I'm sorry to say that my bug's definately not the same one, 'cause it's pretty much gone away now. I tried update pack 2.0.5, booted without hastle, and used WinUpdates to grab everythinhg it wanted (KB890830, KB913580, KB911565 and the somewhat controversial KB905474) and restarted without a hitch. I still get the black screen after the logo for maybe 15 seconds, which never used to happen, but the welcome screen pops up soon after. So I guess I can live with an extra 30sec boot time, ten minutes was definately pushing it though.
Guess I'll just skip 2.0.6 and hope that whatever doesn't like my system accidentally gets fixed at some point, as I aint bright enough to figure it out, and certainly not patient enough to try without VMWare being an option.
Now to just put everything else back, and one more install Is it just me or is there ALWAYS one more install?
Thanks again all. All your hard work and knowledge are much appreciated.
