    I doubt it. I wouldn't go to all that trouble. I have the slipstreamed Vista SP2 disk and would simply do a repair install or at worst a format and complete reinstallation.

    That update is a nightmare. It fails with the error code it is designed to fix. It cannot be installed until that error code is fixed. That error code will not be fixed until that update is installed. A vicious cycle.

    I have had to do SO many manual installs of this update to fix the error in the first place, although installing the alternative Intel update is a better option when available.
    That's ridiculous. How did that happen?

    The problem is that this is not so much a Windows Update failure, rather an incompatibility problem with Advanced Format Disks. It is therefore quite possible that even a format would not actually fix this error.

    The best solution is to remove the problematic disk (usually a large hard drive), disable Advanced Formats, install the update, and then reinstall the hardware. The problem arises if the hard disk you have the problem on is also the one you hae you OS installed on. *sigh*

    'tis not a good problem! What Microsoft really need to do is to release a flashing utility. I don't know how hard it is to make, presumably extremely hard.
