    Vista SP1 0x80070020


    We have tried to install Vista SP1 on a Vista Ultimate Micron PC. We have
    uninstalled McAfee, we have turned off all of the automatic starting
    programs, we have run scannow, we have run check disk -- But no matter what,
    we do we contine to get the message the installation is un-successful with
    the message number 0x80070020.

    We were able to get SP1 to work on another system, but this is a real
    mystery on this machine.

    Is there any way to find out where it failed? Does anyone have any other
    suggestions?

    SP1 enquiries should be addressed to the SP1 forum:

    There is no need to uninstall protection software, just disable it.
