What did you do - that is where wife's laptop s stuck!
Force cancel (and restart), re-apply the update in windows update if necessary. It appears as if it actually completes the download and/or install without completing the countdown on the updates screen (almost as if the update screen is hung).
That's still a bit odd to be seeing it hang on multiple systems. With the beta and later RC the hang would occur at the 99% mark and then suddenly see the reverting changes message when those attempts failed on the 64bit here.

With the final version the error page now shows corrective measures that when used on the second attempt saw an immediate success without any hang at the end. The SP took a 50min. total before the restart/config began but that was it.

You likely needed to take a few preparation steps missed out on resulting in the hangs you saw in order for the smooth finish to be seen. I still have another 64bit Home Premium desktop to see updated with everything including SP1. That should go a bit faster however typically only seeing light use at that.

I used Windows Update a few hours ago and got SP1 installed.
One thing that happened was after the install when I pressed "Restart" it did the normal "Logging off" and "Configuring Updates" stuff, but it stayed at "Shutting down" for an hour to I held the power button for 5 seconds to turn off the computer and pressed the power button again to turn it on and it continued on.
Any reason why it hung like that?

There most likely is. Prior to public release the beta testers were only complaining about uninstall options for it. Seems that going from beta to full release, a lot of problems have crept in.

I had to reformat just to get it installed, as it kept failing to install and not even the readiness pack resolved the issue. The system was fully patched and clean (so said MSE2 and MBAM) and a SFC scan reported no issues. The SP also bugged out my WU, so I had to use a reset bat thing to get it back to normal working order.

I've been reading the problem threads about SP1 here and I remember seeing someone say that it won't install if you have certain drivers (like Intel display drivers-- I have an Intel Display chip+drivers), which is kind of bull.

Knew there must be changes with WMP since I had to set it up again. Sure enough it now has codecs to play MP4's. Still waiting for it to play Real files so I can get rid of that junk.

VLC is supposed to play Real files, as well as almost anything else on the planet. That's the only player that I use. No way I will allow that Real junk on my machine .

when i got up this morning it took a good 5 mins to boot into windows then another 2 to load ie when looking at my windows update it says the sp1 failed to install but i know it has done a rollback as my virus protection that i installed the same day is also not installed now im trying once again to install sp1 but now it is just saying downloading and its stuck at 0% and i have not installed my virus protection yet as i saw that was an isue for some
