I reloaded my Son's Toshiba A205-S5825 laptop with factory restore disk. Disk loads PC to original version including SP1. Tried to download SP2, but get error of Vista not supported, manually load SP2. Downloaded SP2 from MS and tried to install.
Machine locks up during step 2 of 3. After restart and during install of updates, screen looks like a DOS screen and a single progress line is displayed. After a few minutes, the message freezes with !! 0XC0190005 !! 9345/53700 (Registry\schema\wcm://microsoft...) Went to MS help. Upon suggestions for similar issues, tried running upgrade readiness tool with no help. Help suggested removing SP1 and reloading both. SP1 is not an installed option, so I cannot remove it using restore points or other methods suggested in MS help.
Not sure where to go now. Any help would be appreciated.

Since it's a clean install...it doesn't seem to matter.

You should be able to reinstall SP1, even though it already exists.

You can just run your recovery disks anew.

I think that I would check the hard drive via appropriate diagnostic...before I expended any more energy. It won't hurt to ensure that the drive is OK.
