Win 7 SP1 Failure configuring Service pack


M

mac

I have an Acer netbook which I upgraded from Windows 7 Started Edition to
Windows Home Premium. The Netbook has 2 Gig RAM and plenty of HD space
(over 100 GIG ). The SP1 update downloads completely through Windows
update, It goes through "installing OK", and it says successful
installation, then asks to reboot, it goes through a Windows background
"Configuring Service pack" and it then....... "Failure configuring Service
pack. Reverting Changes. Do not turn off your computer" .... it takes a
long time and restarts without the SP1.... Very frustrating....

Any ideas? mac

Hi, I was having this problem as well so I ran the upgrade option from the Win 7 DVD and when it did it's compatability tests it came back telling me that there was insufficient space on the System partition which was created by Win 7 when I installed it originally and the sixe was 25MB (yes MB) The upgrade would not continue until I had resolved this which I managed to do via Acronis disk manager. Once I had increased the size to 1GB I then decided to install SP1 again and this time it worked.

So I would suggest running the Win 7 upgrade option from the DVD and see what it says after it runs the compatability check.

Hope this helps.
