    Windows vista recovery error CTOERROR.f​lg and following that error 0x643 while insta

    Hi All
    system info : HP LAPTOP DV6 -1256tx , windows vista sp1 32 bit
    When I am trying to install windows vista sp1 from recovery disks/partition I am getting the error from recovery manager prompting me to choose either to retry or see the details for failure : CTOERROR.flg in form of notepad on my desktop. I have done retry 100 times but to no avail. I cannot restart after this recovery failure message as it shows dialog box on restart: windows security update is not installed successfully or is not trusted.So, i have to go through recovery process again to see the desktop (everything functioning - internet,video, music all) but only once.
    Last time i got this message too . When i did installing windows from recovery disks few months back, that time i figured out to install all imp. updates through automatic windows update.All the updates were installed successfully and then it restarted and gone through process of language settings,time settings and all....
    But this time when i am trying to update windows, i am getting windows update error 0x643 which is for security update for .net framewrok 3.5 sp1 and family update.I do know the answer how to get away with this error from "windows help" and also from this forum too, which asks for installing .net framework updates from windows update site directly. But the problem is:
    Windows update ask me to restart after automatic or manual windows update installation takes place and restart causes problem as it shows dialog box - windows security update is not installed successfully . I need to install all updates in one go like last time from my understanding.:
    1. So if i install windows update (to try my luck as last time) it shows 0x643 error for .net framework and asks to restart and after that when i try to manually install failed updated 0x643 it asks me to restart the windows for pending updates.
    2. Alternatively, If i try to install failed update first just after recovery failure it won't allow me to install important updates for vista sp1 and asks to restart windows.
    All i need is to successfully update all updates through windows automatic update which is not happening at the moment.
    Not even able to upgrade to sp2 bcz it too restarts for installing.
    Please Help.
    Thanks in advance.

    Do you have the original (no SP1 or SP2) Vista installed? You won't be able to install SP1 otherwise.

    Have you tried the SP1 update from Windows Update rather than the disc? No matter how you do it, it's going to reboot numerous times.

    Yes it's so. I forget how many times. Perhaps numerous was the wrong term.

    In order to install SP1 without already having the base Vista installed is if the recovery disc is a slipstream disc in which SP1 is already incorporated into the base version. Perhaps you have that or the base Vista disc and the SP1 update disc. I don't know.
