Windows 7: Service Pack 1 won't install

Service Pack 1 won't install

I have tried several times to get it to install on one of my Windows 7 machines. First I tried getting it from Microsoft Update. When that didn't work, I downloaded the ISO file and burned a DVD. That installation worked fine on my secondary computer running an AMD
processor. But this one, an Intel Q6600 keeps failing. I thought it might have been the MSIE 9 RC that I have, so I uninstalled it. Same thing. "Failed to install" If I try to find the reason, it tells me error ox80004005. Any Ideas? This is Win 7 Home Premium 64 running on a quad-core Intel processor, Gigabyte motherboard and
4 GB Ram. Windows 7 runs fine, just won't take SP1.

Wait until Windows Update delivers it.

It has been downloading and installing via Updates for me as fast and easy as any large Update.

There are no performance improvements included just updates and patches, so it's nothing to sweat until Updates can install it correctly.

Windows Update failed first, before I downloaded the ISO. I ran the syscheck scan and it found some corrupt files that it couldn't fix. So, it's time for Repair Start. May do that tomorrow.

Hello mate, have a look at this one first, it may take running it a couple times to be successful and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

If SFC doesn't find anything or cannot repair files after 2-3 passes from within Windows or from the Command Line in System Recovery Options, then run a Repair Install described in this blue link as it is different from Startup Repair run when Windows 7 won't start.

I went to MS update,downloaded and installed it nps on my machine...so I don't really understand why you should have an issue with it.

Running from my Windows 7 DVD, I got the same message from (SFC /Scannow /offbootdir=D:\ offwindir=D:\windows) that I got from within Windows 7 -- found some corrupt files, but unable to restore them. When I get back from my appointment I'll try again, else it's repair install time like Gregrocker said.

Hello again.


Running it from the booted Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) it has a better chance to repair corrupted files when Windows in not 'running' and the files aren't being accessed at all.

Too bad it didn't help mate.

Be sure to post back with updates.

Irreparable files are not that uncommon - they often occur when uninstalling Norton or Office trial bloatware - but it is whether they affect performance that should guide you.

If you still have performance problems then the Repair Install will almost always fix them as it reinstalls the OS and can sometimes winnow bad settings from programs which are carried over.

As already mentioned, SP1 is not revolutionary. There appear to be widespread and varied install problems people are facing with this pack. So hold your horses, MS is sure to address the affliction. You're fully protected in whatever way windows updates protect you, so dont worry.
