Your image should already have SP1 on it

I recommend getting with others in your I.T. department before making any changes. Their is a good chances that making changes without the assistance of other I.T. department members is got you into this problem.

Win 7 x64 Home Premium (and x86 VirtualBox VM)/Win10

The CBS log shows that the attempt to install SP1 is being halted by a mass of 'file not found' errors.
Both SFC and CheckSUR logs are clear.

I suspect that either a repair install or a clean install will be required
I would support the idea of consulting with the others in the IT department, since there is likely to be no way to recover the Key from the existing install.

Hi NoelDP,

I already tried a repair but had no luck. I was hoping to avoid a clean install but it looks like that is my best option. I appreciate your assistance.
