Before installing the service pack go to a command prompt and run either of these commands:
reg add HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Intelppm /v Start /d 4 /t REG_DWORD
sc config intelppm start= disabled
Both commands will disable the driver before you install the service pack and will prevent the problem from ever occuring.
Click Start, click Run, and enter: regedit Navigate to the "Start" value of the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Intelppm In the right panel, examine the value "Start" Change the 'Start' value to 4 instead of its setting of 1. To do this, right click on the value "Start" in the right panel and choose Modify. Log off or reboot
The Safe Mode job worked for me!
