First question wasn't the SP1 already in the disk? What disk did you use?

Since you just installed it and I smell you torrented the iso, I'd really say screw that and do a real clean reinstall following this tutorial (with links to reliable iso files)
It was OEM disk installer. SP1 has been on install DVD for only a few months, mine are pre-SP1 too.

In the clean install did you let Windows 7 do a full format of your drive? If not, try it that way.

I ran a diskpart and performed a clean. I did a format fs=NTFS and then installed from the original 64bit disk.

current status is cleaned and running basically.

cannot install SP 1
Downloaded stand alone thingy and then run downloaded SP1.ISO (7601.17514.101119-1850_Update_Sp_Wave1-GRMSP1.1_DVD from MS) Sp1 I get an error code which is solved by installing the stand alone thingy and then installing SP 1.. round in circles I go.

I think that either its a full fresh reinstall OR live with it. Switching out one of the spare hhd and using that as the C drive might be the next move or just switching over to a SSD.

I dont think this is going to be solved I think theres a basic error with something somewhere on the disk and it defies the odds its a bad install or bad hdd after 14 months.

Unless anyone really wants to keep at this I dont want to waste peoples time and will close this in about 8 hours or so

Sorry AP I tried to reply last night but my credit ran out on the wireless adaptor.

As someone else said that 7 should have come with SP1 on it so I guess it is an older buy? I did the same thing mate when I bought a pre built and the OEM they sent didn't have the SP1 and it was a pain then.

I still reckon you would be better to boot from a SSD and do your thing with the other drives.

It's also a good idea to download the Microsoft Readiness Tool as it will help with some of the updates too. The others put me onto this when I had heaps of problems with some updates (that is if you haven't got it already) .

Download: System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB947821) [September 2012] - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

Now take a deep breath

We can by pass the non SP1 installing. go here Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life and download the iso file for the exact version of Windows 7 you now have, any other won't work. Save to your desktop to find it easily for the next steps.

Do Step two here Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 and I think you may skip to step 7 and continue.
