SP1 on stage 3 100% then reverts???

I have tried to install service pack 1 five times with the same out come each and ever time. I've done the drivers and I think that they are signed and the updates are up to date. I have checked their history and the ones that did not install or were canceled have been reinstalled. There is no error number. After stage one and two have run their course and the PC just reaches a point at the end of the SP1 install, where it's rebooting and the % of install is all the way up to 100% it grinds for 4 or 5 minutes and then says on screen "SP1 install failed - reverting changes" and spends the next hour rebooting and undoing all the changes it made. The rig is a AMD duel core 5600 with 3 gigs of ram and phoenix bios. If I need to get more specifics I'll have to get it when I'm on my rig at home. Any help would be appreciated. I obviously need it.

The latest drivers sometimes foul things up more than fixing them - uninstall the drivers you have installed and see if SP1 will install - also note and make sure *all* Vista updates show as being successfully installed - a failed update somewhere wayyyyy down in the list could be causing you headaches....

I was getting the same behavior before I updated my drivers. Do you mean go back to all native windows drivers? and I did go wayyy-- back and checked numbers on updates to make sure thoes that failed had been installed at a later time I'll do that again to re confirm. This is really starting to get the best of me. Each time I try to install the SP1 It takes longer to revert and boot. This last time well over an hour and a half just to boot and then an other 45 minutes to start up after the log in screen. Thanks for the time and help. Any thing else you can think of would be appreciated. Darell

No, I mean uninstall your drivers (if you really want to troubleshoot it uninstall 1 at a time and then try SP1 and see which one causes it to fail - but that will be extremely cumbersome).

Most times when you uninstall drivers Vista will either not be able to use the device or will install la generic driver that is included with Vista.

Well then, I'll give it a go and see if it shakes out. Once again thanks for the time. One question though assuming that the sp1 does install when I go back into device manager to reinstall the updated and signed drivers will windows have saved the copies and roll forward to the ones I had before I uninstalld them?

No, you'll want to manually download and install the latest drivers - forget about Windows keeping drivers, in fact, when uninstall the devices in Device Manager, make sure to select "remove driver" as well so Windows doesn't try to automatically reinstall the driver on reboot.

Oh, and yes - reboot after uninstalling drivers. Vista will then use its generic drivers (install them) and all should be well.

Hi dedet,

The best time to install a service pack is on a clean installation. If you think about it, the DVDs of Vista with SP1 integrated are just the same as the originals except that SP1 has been slip-streamed in so that it installs along with Vista at the same time. The same was true with XP SP1 and XP SP2 (I'm not sure whether it will be with XP SP3).
The ideal solution is to download the standalone version of SP1 (link given below), burn it to a CD, and then perform a complete clean installation of Vista (remember to back up any data first). Always disconnect from the Internet whilst you install Vista. When Vista has finished installing, now is the time to install SP1. By doing it this way, you should have a greater chance of success because the registry and other important system files haven't become corrupted due to other programs you have (un)installed. When you have successfully installed SP1, remember to install your anti-malware program BEFORE going back online, and make sure that you run a manual update on this and Vista itself before you do anything else.
I notice that you have a 32-bit version of Vista. As a bonus, SP1 for Office 2007 is also available, and this will fit on a standard 700MB CD together with SP1 for Vista (links below).

Hi Dwarf, in revue to make sure I have this in the proper sequential order. Anti-malware program BEFORE going back online, then hook up and go on line manual up date on it and Vista and I'm off to the races? This all sounds doable and I'll give it a go this PM. Thanks for the impute and advice as well the tip on the office update. Darell

Hi dedet,

Yes, that is correct. Hopefully, you should have your system back up and running, together with SP1, by the time you read this. Please let us know how you got on as this will probably help others who are having difficulty in installing SP1.

Well here is the story of my Sundays efforts. I downloaded the stand alone version SP1 and burned a CD. The thought of dumping all drivers (except system) was more than I could bear and my external hard drive is small and didn't have enough room on disk for a back up to do a clean install. So to expedite I got this idea of a work around. I made a system restore point. Then I booted into the Windows recovery environment. Chose safe mood without networks. Once there ran the SP1 CD. It ran stage 1 and 2 to 100% then rebooted for stage 3. On the P.O.S.T. I F8ed to safe without networks again. (tell me if I'm wrong but in safe mood only system drivers are loaded right?) I digress, any may stage three ran to 100% and after 1 hour and45 minutes of grinding I got "SP1 failed to install-reverting changes" From 10:30 AM to 4:00 PM before I got back to my log in screen. At that point I had a mood. Any thoughts besides buck it up and do what I told you?

Now will you uninstall the drivers and try Sp1?

You can try the drivers one at a time, just make sure you can download replacement drivers from the OEM site first...if a device is using a Microsoft Windows driver, don't uninstall it, obviously.

Disconnect from the internet and turn off you anti virus and firewall.
Then try it again.
I had the same trouble after the 4th try that is what I did.
Worked fine.

The firewall and AV do not run if safe mode. Nothing runs in safe mood except basic windows no programs no printers no networks. Thats the moment of pause I'm having, why did it not work?

However, even though nothing is *running* the files are still there - hence my suggestion to *uninstall* drivers. Not having them installed is completely different from not having them *running*.

Not a problem - it is a lesson I had to learn sometime in the past as well. It's a hard lesson to accept and understand, as today's software is a lot more complicated than software written just 5 years ago, let alone stuff from the 80s.

Do post back with results - and I sincerely hope this actually works for you - else we're back at square one.

Well here we are at square one! I went to device manager and checked every non system driver for signatures. All were good with the exception of my TV combo tuner PCIe card and my Lite on DVD rom and lite on DVD burner drives. The latter had four drivers each two of whitch were not signed. So I used the uninstall/delate button and deleted them one and all. Then checked the trash to make sure there was no evidence of them that I could find at my skill level. On the re boot I went back into device manager and tool a look. The TV card had hooked up with signed drivers but the two DVD drives loaded up just as the had been previous to the re boot. I then went to my down load file (I keep the important exe's). burned copies of them and deleted the file contents. Rebooted again with the same result, with the drivers and my DVD drives in device manager. At that point I thought what the hell give it a go. I deleted the drivers once again and booted into safe mode and on the post, after stage one and two ran to 100% went to safe, again, for stage three which went to 100%------------- then 7min. 27 seconds later "SP1 failed to install reverting changes" Hence "Back to square one again".
What to do now? I'm thinking a Clean install now and then try but I'll still have those same drivers loading up, even on that install won't I. Any thoughts? dedet

Hi dedet,

It is possible that the root cause of your problem is the TV combo tuner card. What I suggest is that you physically remove it from your system before installing Vista and SP1. Whilst you are inside your PC, check all connections are secure as problems can ensue from connections that appear to be secure but in fact are not. You can reinstall your card once you have finished your installation. It is possible, though, that you will require an up to date driver for this card in order for it to work with SP1. If you reply with details of the card, i.e. model and manufacturer, I should be able to check if there is an update available and the correct method of installation for it. Please note that this is not guaranteed, and you should resign yourself to the fact that this card, although it worked in Vista, may no longer work in SP1 and can give rise to problems if it is installed in a system with SP1 present.
