Decided to skip searching and go right for the asking? ;-)

In case you didn't know how to search...

Search using Google!
http://www.google.com/
(How-to: http://www.google.com/intl/en/help/basics.html )

A Google search for:
SP3 8007F0F4
http://www.google.com/search?q=SP3+8007F0F4

That yields many hits - one of the top being:

Windows XP Service Pack 3 installation fails with an error message, and the
following error is logged in the service pack installation log: "8007F0F4 -
STATUS_PREREQUISITE_FAILED"
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949388

Which seems to be exactly what you are looking for. ;-)

The problem I have is about the same as above, I did search a lot and
couldn't find anything helpfull.

The error in the windows update window is:
"some updates could not be installed" and further: "The following
updates were not installed: Windows XP Service Pack 3 (KB936929)"

The appropriate code as far as I know is:

Check out the file svcpack.log on Windows\ after update failed.
Last line should state the error.
Then proceed as in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949388

Re: Error Code: 0x8007F0F4 when installing Windows XP SP3 (KB93692

I have the same problem and got the message in the svcpack.log that I have to
uninstall KB925877. My problem is that the uninstall package is not available
on my PC anymore and only removing the package from the installlist is not
sufficient. Any suggestions other then reinstalling the complete Windows XP?

Regards,
