i figured instead of going through every page of the forum i would post an easy topic for people to see that are having troubles updating to SP1 getting errors
System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vistahttp://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;DisplayLang=en
This tool is being offered because an inconsistency was found in the Windows servicing store which may prevent the successful installation of future updates, service packs, and software. This tool checks your computer for such inconsistencies and attempts to resolve issues if found.
Sorry in advance if i posted this topic in the wrong spot
hope it helps some people
