Windows 7: Give up on installing Win 7 Sp1 ?

file finding

Ok I have extracted all the file except for the winsxs\Manifests. I have winsxs on the disk(in Image 3) but no winsxs\Manifests. Can't seem to find them.

Never mind I found them. Wow for a senior citizen this sure is fun.

Looked under Manifests but still could not find them.

i must be one of the lucky ones. I told it to install, and it did, first time. Maybe Balmer should work on windows, and give up the smartphone thing...

You probably need to take ownership of the files. See SP1 error's 800F081F & 800F0A13 (and probably the rest of the thread as it does mirror much of your issues).

Can I just say how commendable it is for knowledgeable people as yourself to be guiding the rest of us through this process, however I think I'll back off this installation until things "just work" I bought my laptop to use for myself not to be an unpaid troubleshooter/quality control person for Microsoft. Anyone would think the service pack was still in Beta stage.
Shoddy work MS.

Hi, brotherboard.

Thank you for the compliment (I think ). I've been around help forums for many years. All software vendors have people with problems who need help. It has nothing to do with being "an unpaid troubleshooter/quality control person for Microsoft" or any other vendor. There just happens to be those of us who like to do what we can to help others. Years ago, I provided help with Ad-Aware. I know others who help with various vendor firewalls, SAS, MBAM, etc.

Stop and think about it -- even if each and every computer that was built was absolutely identical when it came off the assembly line (and we know they aren't since there are multiple manufacturers as well as people who build their own), realize that as soon as each of us puts our own personal mark on the computer, it is no longer unique. There is an infinite number of software configurations, customizations, hacks, etc. There is absolutely no way to test every possible scenario.

please don't think I was referring to you or any other advisor when I said about unpaid troubleshooters. (that bit referred to myself) You all do a fantastic job and I would never insult anyone in that manner.
I was reading the posts to ascertain if I would encounter any problems with this service pack. My laptop is working perfectly and the last thing I need is some software screwing it up. Having read the forum I see more problems than success, or is just that those who have not encountered problems don't post, so we get an a unbalanced view of things?

Those of us who have had success aren't posting about that .... we're trying to help troubleshoot the problem for those who need the help.

Mine installed fine.
I've been helping out what I can.

I looked like a young Tom Selleck before SP1 came out.

I'm not to sure about now.
