Failure Configuring Windows 7 SP1

I've tried installing Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Several times so but have yet to get it to work. Each time my computer restarts and begins configuring the updates up to 10% at which point I get the message:
Failure configuring Service pack
reverting changes

Then once my computer restarts I get a message saying:
Installation Failed
Element not Found.
Error: ERROR_NOT FOUND(
0x80070490)

Can someone please help me find what the problem is.
