Windows 7: Error 0x80070643 Service pack 1 install failure

Error 0x80070643 Service pack 1 install failure

About a week ago, I installed a new SSD and configured it as my boot drive running Win 7 Ultimate. Everything was working fine until yesterday. I ran windows update and attempted to install 2 updates and was prompted to restart. I clicked start-->install updates and shut down. When it was shutting down, the PC began stage 1 of 2 of configuring Service Pack. After 30% completion in stage 1, the computer restarts and begins configuring service pack again, starting from 30% where it left off. It gets up to 32% and stays there for about 30-45 min and the begins "Shutting Down" for an hour or so. Once it shuts down, I power it back on. Displayed is:

Stage 1 of 2
Failure configuring Service Pack
Reverting changes
Do not turn off your computer

I left this screen displayed for over 3 hours before performing a hard shut down and starting windows in safe mode for it to finally boot fully to windows. At that point, I receive an error stating that the Service Pack installation was not successful.

If any of you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them. I have gone through this process 3 times now. Thanks in advance.

Thank you for your response. I went through all the steps but the .zip CBS file is 14.9 MB and the forum will not allow me to attach any .zip files larger than 8.3 MB. Can I send you an email or private message? any other ideas on how to upload it?

Upload it to either your SkyDrive (https://skydrive.live.com ) or other favorite fileshare site, and post a link

You had a HUGE number of files replaced by SFC - 1400 or so!
Surprisingly, CheckSUR found nothing wrong.

I suggestt hat you run SFC again - this time, just post the latest cbs.log file rather than the whole folder.
You'll need to copy it to the desktop, and zip and upload it from there.

OK, I ran SFC again. Here is the .log file

That's somewhat better, I think - but it still had a lot to do. (and a lot I don't understand about it!)
Have you moved the Program FIles folder across to a new drive?

Please run another SFC scan (again!) and post the new result, and we'll see where we are.

Ran it one more time.

I havent moved my program files but wanted windows to default new program installs to my D drive. In an attempt to make that happen I went to regedit (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE-->SOFTWARE-->Microsoft-->Windows-->CurrentVersion) and changed the "ProgramFilesDir" and the "ProgramFilesDir (x86)" to a path on the D drive instead of the C drive.

OMIGAWD!
You have now irrevocably screwed your machine.
You will have to reformat and rinstall, as you've got both 32-bit and 64-bit Program Files folders pointing to the same destination - Windows will not have a clue what's going on.
