Windows XP Pro won’t boot, safe mode boot hangs at agp440.sys – Microsoft Community

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/12/02

When safe mode is a good thing: [WayBackWindows XP Pro won’t boot, safe mode boot hangs at agp440.sys – Microsoft Community

During the regular boot, after a minute or so on SSD, a legacy Windows XP SP3 machine didn’t reboot.

During safe mode, it hung after loading agp440.sys. Apparently this is a Good Thing ™ as it means that chkdsk is running in the background as the post above explains.

Nice to know!
