Windows 7: Installing Windows 7 64bit Service Pack 1, Error "D_S_S_SUCCESS(0x0)"

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Installing Windows 7 64bit Service Pack 1, Error "D_S_S_SUCCESS(0x0)"


I recently purchased a 128gb Crucial M4 SSD.

The other day my father and I sat down together to work on setting up the SSD as my OS drive. We installed Windows 7 64bit Home Premium successfully on the drive. There were no issues until I started to install drivers liberally rather then conservatively.

While installing ~101 Window's Updates, I impatiently started installing my XFX Radeon 6870 drivers. This caused a crash and a blue screen to appear. After rebooting the system in Safe Mode, everything appeared fine. However, my video card drivers were in a weird funk. After some research, I resolved the issue and my video card drivers were all working and installed successfully.

The big problem now is that when trying to Install Service Pack 1, I get an error code upon reboot that says "D_S_S_SUCCESS(0x0)". During the installation of Service Pack 1, the install stops about half-way and wants me to reboot the system, so I do. Rebooting the system is when I get the error code. The screen that pops up says that the install was unsuccessful.

I've looked around on Microsoft's website to find some help. So far I've performed the following tasks:

  • Downloaded a tool by Microsoft called Mrfixit.
  • I've ran troubleshooting that attempts to fix windows update.
  • I've ran disk cleanup to delete temporary files, which won't even delete everything...
  • I've uninstalled any virus software
  • System Update Readiness Tool
  • I've tried renaming the systems distribution folder... (Was this bad?) When I renamed my systems distribution folder to SDold... it created another one... Should I delete my systems distribution folder? Is there anyway to revert this? I hope I didn't ruin anything by doing this.
I have no clue what to do next to fix this issue. I'm really concerned I'm damaging my Solid State Drive by all this constant rebooting and installing/uninstalling.

I really hope I have not made any mistakes.

Would it bad for the Solid State Drive to just reinstall the operating system and wipe it clean?

Thank you for your time

Please post your CheckSUR.log file, and a copy ofyour CBS.log file.
Since you are still at an early stage, it may be quicker and easier to simply reinstall - it would probably be less damaging than repeated attempts to install SP1

This time, I would recommend updating Windows first, in batches (do the Security updates first, and leave all .NET updates until last - do not install the Recommended updates until all Important ones are in)Once Windows is up to date, install an AV, and any needed drivers (from the manufacturer's site).
