Windows 7: HP DV7 Windows 7 SP Install problem error 0x8e5e03f6

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
HP DV7 Windows 7 SP Install problem error 0x8e5e03f6

After trying windows 10 on my HP laptop (different from the one in my other support thread) I decided to go back to Windows 7 so I had to do a wipe and re-install from an OEM image. Windows update wasn't showing SP 1 as an option so I downloaded it from Microsoft. After running the stand alone installer it exited with the message that an unknown error occurred The error code is 0x8e5e03f6

Any help solving this would be appreciated

After trying information on different sites the error code is changing to 802400D
