I'm guessing that you have checked windows update manager?
Yeah, the best route would probably then be the manual installer. I installed it with the manual installer and it was a (slow) breeze once I had got the right file. Invade you are wondering which one it is from the MS website, unfortunately it's the large iso file. There are three installer inside the iso, so I would recommend you just open in it winrar and take the right one out rather than burning it to a DVD. Manual instals are generally better to do as windows update doesn't really give you much of a representation of progress.
Nb. The SP1 installer may seem that it's broken when staying on one point for ages, but it just takes a long time

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit-HP OEM SP1 Installed

A few of us had this same problem the thread below might have your answer. It probably has to so with an Intel Graphics driver , Post # 32 of that thread has step by step instructions.

SP1 Not Listed in WU

Also since the thread above has been posed I NOW have a optional Intel Driver update in Windows Update but I have not taken it since the driver in the post above is working fine for me. Post back with nay questions after reading the thread.
