Windows XP SP3 Blue Screen Restart Error. What is the solution?

Answer

A:

Continual BSODs & reboots or can only boot into Safe Mode after installing WinXP SP3?

See http://msinfluentials.com/blogs/jesper/archive/2008/05/08/does-your-amd-based-computer-boot-after-installing-xp-sp3.aspx

[NB: The above has been updated many times and now includes "a small tool that will detect the IntelPPM problem and mitigate it before installing (WinXP SP3)."]

Possible workaround: Boot into Safe Mode and rename INTELPMM.SYS to INTELPMM.OLD.
