The svcpack.log which is in C:\Windows is kind of long but I just want to find out what the last few lines of it mean, here they are (notice the line "UpdSpCommitFileQueue for FileQueue failed 0xd", anyone know what this means?):

I'm guessing that perhaps something is running that I need to shut down.

This is just the SP3 update that failed and not an OS install, correct? On a failure like this do not do SP3  from update or using the exe file. Download the iso file and burn it to disk using something like Imgburn. Then run the setup from the disk.

I have the burned iso version of sp3.  My hesitation to use it is that the OS install does not run the same as an update.  It looks like an original OS install and it's sort of clunky in the user interface and I don't see that nice, smooth rollback if something goes wrong.  Mi might try it but why wouldn't the sp3 update from the .exe fun correct;ly?  There shouldn't be a difference between the two methods.  What will I do if the installtion from CD fails?

The iso I linked to is not the OS. It is a disk to install SP3. All files are expanded on the disk.  If you do not wish to use the iso file there is also the standalone installer of SP3 here. It's one exe file. Double click it in an admin account.

 

If you are afraid something may go wrong first create a full disk image to an external drive using Macrium Reflect Free or Aoemi Backupper Standard. Both will create a bootable disk or USB that you can use to restore the image if something goes wrong. After you make the bootable disk or USB boot with it and make sure it detects your hard drives including your external drive. 

 

Edit: Do you have the install disk of XP with the same service pack as what is currently installed? You may want to open a command prompt in an admin account and type

 

sfc /scannow     This will look for any missing or corrupt system files. Before the SP3 install I would also do a defrag if it has not already been done. And, disable your antivirus.

The standalone installer is the way I'm trying to debug.  It gets most of the way through and then you see the error message I posted.  I want that method to work but perhaps I need to go into safe mode for some reason.  But I want to know that the specific error is.  I'm not the type who glosses over things - what exact file is not copying and why?  What does FileQueue and all that stuff mean?  Exactly, then I need to fix the exact problem.  Does it think I left my network card out even though I disacled it.  I can't find my network card.

I might just order anew network card fo the same type - same drivers

Why doesn't the Microsoft installer say what file "Data is invalid" is associated with?  Who's the bozo the clown who wrote it?

I am not exactly sure what the problem is but a poster had problems installing the exe SP3. I linked him to the iso file and using that he was able to successfully update.

 

It's always best to create a full disk image before doing something like a SP upgrade. However small a chance, things can go wrong.

I guess I'll try it that way.  So if I do it that way, it will just look like an OS Install, is that right?  Like, it will ask me which is the partition I want to install it on?  Too much details?

It's been awhile but I believe there is a setup.exe file on the disk after the iso is burned. I usually use Imgburn to burn an iso to disk and use a speed no faster than 4X.

If you get a chance, can you check, do the files look like the below pic.jpg on the cd?  I've already burnt a CD witth the below file structure.  I could do it again or just run the CD - I call this a slipstream install?  Is that what it's called?.

The purpose of my upgrading to sp3 is to solve the constant Mozilla browser crashes that have occured since I added memory to my

computer. I will start looking at the crash reports.  It appears to be TCP/IP/winsock related though - could be a network adapter issue

 

I've never really gotten at the heart of it - those reports will help greatly to pinpoint the problem..

Did you install Net Framework 3.5?  I just did two fresh XP Pro 32-bit installs late June or early July, and I had the separate disk for SP3 which I bought from MSFT (cheaper than my time lost downloading).  It completed alright, but still couldn't run without Net Framework 3.5, so I downloaded only that.  The issue only arose on my later laptop.  The earlier one didn't need Framework.

 

But then, my machines are not networked, so the above paragraph might be irrelevant to you.

That file structure in post #11 looks correct. Yes, slipstreaming is what it is called but this would be used for doing a clean install of the OS. You can use the exe file of SP3 and Autostreamer to do it easily. nlite also works but you need .NET on the computer to run it.

No, I have not yet installed Net Framework 3.5.  Would you recommend I do that and if so, where do I get this thing.  I am running Windows XP sp2

right now.
