Hope someone may be able to help, Vista SP2 32 Bit Home Premium.

Can't install Service Pack 2 at all, tried from Windows Update and tried the stand alone version and still can't do it. Vista is one big piece of garbage.

It just tells me that installation wasn't successful and reverts back. I do get an Error: E-FAIL (0x80004005) whatever that means.

Any ideas?????

Have you seen this?

"Vista is one big piece of garbage"
Nothing to do with Vista.

Both options failed for me and still get same error I suppose I have one option, buying Vista with SP2 included which I'm not gonna bother with as its a crap operating system regardless of this problem. I'll wait for Windows 7 and put it on.

thanks for that, I may try it out and see, I'm due for a new computer in the other room (the one with Vista) if I were getting another PC then I'd buy one with Win7 already on it. I have a Mac which I'm using now in this room, I may even go all mac in this household but there's still 7 months before anything happens.

UPDATE:

Service Pack 2 is now installed on Vista, the only way I could get it on was to reinstall the OS and then installing SP1 then SP2 straight up then all other updates available. Four hours of painfulness I can tell you. 2 hours to install Vista, an hour to install SP1 and another hour to install SP2.
