SP1 DVD installation repeatedly fails. says assembly missing0x80073701

ERROR_SXS_ASSEMBLY_MISSING (0x80073701). Have tried to install SP1 from DVD/CD as regular installation from updates had failed every time. CD installation downloads to half way mark then fails. Have tried four times. Have paid ten bucks postage for this CD and I am no further ahead. Help please.
