    Welcome to the Vista x64 Forums

    There's a Microsoft support page that addresses failed SP1 installations. Here's the link: Error message when you try to install Windows Vista Service Pack 1: "Installation was not successful" or "An internal error occurred while installing the service pack"

    I hope this helps.

    Re: Vista SP 1 fails during install

    My SP1 installation stops at 12%. I have all of the pre SP1 updates and have tried to install the 'Checksur' kb update as i am getting 80073712 error code but the message I see is that i don't need the update! I have also tried to download and install the standalone but that fails to install too!

    Can anyone provide help for either of us?

    You can get direct, free tech support from Microsoft for SP1. Here's the link:

    ripbox - i found your 'solution' and followed it but i am afraid it did not work for me as i still get 80073712 error code appearing after 12%.

    Windows crashed the other day and couldn't fix it. After reinstalling I installed SP1 without a hitch. Very interesting...

    Note: I did install the all updates before installing SP1.
