I've been using the same system and I've spent hours trying to figure this out and I've done everything from creating a repair disc and using a command prompt - none has worked and I'm beginning to believe there isn't a solution for this.

Found what the solution is. Just do an upgrade from your installation CD - it takes about two hours and then you have to go through over 70 updates but it works - my system is in tip top condition.
