windows 7 ultimate 32 bit
unable to load Win7 SP1

ASUS laptop came with Windows 7 Starter and I used Windows Anytime Online upgrade to Windows Ultimate. Now I get a message "new updates are available" and this includes Windows 7 SP1. When I try to install, I get error message "referenced assembly could not be found. Error:error_sxs_assembly_missing (0x80073701)". I've searched online and tried a couple of fixes but no change. Anyone have a suggestion?

Nothing worked until I did a repair install of Windows Ultimate and installed more than 100 windows updates. Then SP1 installed properly(took 2 hours).
