I don't know why? So I still could not complete service pack update.

Since then I have tried and failed twice now to install SP1 and both times I went all the way to 100% of the third phase of installation. I wish I knew Britec09 1,033,469 views 10:12 Some Updates Were Unable to Install: Service Pack Install Failure - Ask a Tech #64 - Duration: 3:07. Reverting Changes. I've left it running for as long as about 6 - 7 hours the last time but didn't really keep track.

If it says not dectects any problem about startup, you should delete c:\boot directory then repair again.I install vista sp2 with this problem, and it takes me one day and half to fix So be aware of this. That's why some people reported gaining disk space after install or failed install.   Good luck to all!! but then again I don't try, rush it out the door, and let "loyal" users deal with the pains.

Double click it and up comes a Properties panel that shows it's service name Trusted installer. I note that before going through the process there was some warning information about how long it might take and that the computer may shutdown and turn on again as part But no, instead, it just says "service pack was not installed, reverting changes"..that too at the end of 1.5 h!!!   I am going to try one last time with the Please upload a file larger than 100x100 pixels We are experiencing some problems, please try again.

Time to look for the Windows disc for re-installs or a recovery set as our recovery disc doesn't contain any installation files. In normal bootup my install would hang at stage 3 of 3 - 0% complete.

    Reverting changes. Like us on facebook! Don't expect it to work though. this happened about 4 hours later...! (&#!!!!?!!^*&#%*#).

    Failed.   Called tech support and they did the whole easy-assist thing and couldn't figure out what was wrong, so they suggested installing via safe-mode...which I was very hesitant to do. That is simply another Microsoft FRAUD--and yes it's probably time for yet another Vista-related liability class action suit.--ilv Wednesday, March 26, 2008 7:57 AM Reply | Quote 0 Sign in to This time in safe boot mode I tried the change of the Windows Modules Installer Properties from Manual to Automatic and it told me it couldn't be done in Safe Boot

    i am not going to bother right now to simply retry only to get the same result 1-2 hours later.With kind regards,--   Pascal Hofstee Wednesday, March 19, 2008 10:37 AM

    The hard drive is just as new as the operating system and I had already run chkdsk on it for bad sectors. You can only upload a photo (png, jpg, jpeg) or a video (3gp, 3gpp, mp4, mov, avi, mpg, mpeg, rm). Why don't the wizards there think like customers who will, in all liklihood, be doing this themselves? No patch , no news, nothing...     PIRATED COPY FROM NOW ON>>>   why pay for being robbed..  I feel like a looser with microsoft..

    should I try to fix it in safe mode? But! reverting changes? This 1970's hierarchical database, a catch-all mess with the worst indexing on earth, has got to go.

    I was debating about installing SP1 or not. So I needed it set to automatic so SP1 could install and set it to manual...This whole things feels like a bad joke being played on me.
