    install of Vista SP1 fails... http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=101139

    Has anyone found an actual solution to this issue since nothing Microsoft offers
    on
    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=101139 is of any relevance at all..... ??

    Vista SP1 goes through all the install machinations for an hour before finally
    declaring that it will not
    install and directs me to this website. Of course nothing on that page they offer
    is of any value and fixes nothing.

    Thanks for any suggestions you guys/gals might have.

    Did Windows Update offer you Vista SP1 or are you attempting to install it
    manually?

    Error message when you try to install Windows Vista Service Pack 1:
    "Installation was not successful" or "An internal error occurred while
    installing the service pack"
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947366

    Unlimited installation and compatibility support for Vista SP1 is available
    at no charge through 18 Mar-09

    I was attempting to install it manually.... actually downloaded the full boat SP1
    install, 440 MB or so....
    I had been waiting for Windows Update to offer it from within of course, but with
    Vista crashing BSOD numerous times per day, and just generally all around having
    been a nightmare OS, I thought going ahead now manually might repair some of the
    daily headaches.

    Additionally, going to the Microsoft website to purchase SP1 on DVD was met with
    typical Microsoft ineptitude, as the very link they provide to purchase the DVD is
    a non-working link. So typical.

    Listen I genuinely appreciate the response and the help... so please don't take
    this as aimed at you or really anyone in particular, but my god this operating
    system is a COLOSSAL debacle. I am an advanced computer user, very savvy, keep
    everything absolutely up to date, run antivirus / anti-malware / etc. regularly,
    keep my drivers and software up to date, etc. etc.
    Vista is just plain and simple a complete travesty and should have never ever been
    released to the public.

    Rant over.
    Very sincerely, thanks for the help and the direction. I'll keep plugging along
    and if I arrive at the solution, I will for sure post it.

    1. I would not recommend installing SP1 manually unless and until it's
    offered by Windows Update.

    2. Upgrading any software in hopes of fixing an existing problem (especially
    a BSOD problem) usually is not a wise idea. 9 times out of 10, doing so
    only makes it that much harder to fix the problem.

    3. I can confirm that the link to order Vista SP1 on DVD (found here:
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/w.../bb738089.aspx) doesn't work.

    I'm having similar trouble myself. However, windows update is automatically
    telling me to install it. It's went through the very long install process
    twice and has given me the same response. Then is spends another 30 minutes
    reverting back. I have an error code for the installation failure and can't
    find any info on it: Code 80004005. Any recommendations? It's driving me
    nuts.... and I'm also somewhat savy with these things, but this is a new one
    for me. Hope technet comes out with a solution soon.

    As this an english board, therefore I suggest you to make all your questions in english languages. And if you are facing similar type of problem related to "Vista SP1 fails" then it might be that your system is likely corrupted in some manner: bad disk, RAM, or something else. The standalone install is failing because in order to decompress, files that have not changed since the OS was released (version 6.0.6000.16386) but whose component was updated (like network topology, which is causing the failure) is missing.
