I'm sure I researched that before with Google. However the failure of the SP1 install tells me that something is amiss with this machine. I'd sort that out and that will likely help in other ways.

Remember what we read before that files were being copied as it's calculating. So the files are moving. Sadly there are some that will think its not.
