    Default Need help with SP1 install problem

    Here's my situation. I bought a custom gaming PC about a year ago and it came
    with Vista Home Premium 32bit. Since SP1 was released, I've tried several
    times to install it both through Windows Update and manually but it always
    fails. I looked at the information in the Knowledgebase article about the
    error message I was getting and it suggested running a system scan utility
    through the command line interface which I did. The utility said that it
    fixed some files but I had corrupted files that it was not able to repair.

    I went out and bought an upgrade version of Vista Home Premium that
    contained SP1 thinking I could just upgrade it as a workaround. No dice, the
    upgrade option is disabled unless you already have SP1 installed. It will
    only let me do a clean install. This brings me to my first question. If I do
    the clean install, it's going to format my HD right? I'll have to reinstall
    all my software?

    My second question is, does anybody know how I can get SP1 to install on my
    current installation? Any way to find and repair those supposedly corrupt
    files?



    Thanks in advance

    I don't know if this is applicable to your situation, but I had to disable
    my firewall before I was able to install SP1. My first attempt failed after
    going through all three stages successfully.

    What about your antivirus program? My install of SP1 failed until I closed
    it. Suggest going into msconfig and unchecking all items that pertain to
    your antivirus app under the starup tab, then rebooting before trying SP1
    again.

    I encountered the same problems as described by "Pete in NM" when installing
    SP1. I did disable my firewall and anti-spy/virus programs from the start
    up menu and tried to reinstall SP1 again after restarting my pc but the same
    error message appeared (code 8024200D) as before. I think I'll just give up
    for now.

    It's same with my situation.
    I think I'm getting desperate with Windows Vista, yet I've been reinstalled
    my OS twice since I bought this software! There is support answering this
    problem.
