Error installing Windows Vista SP1 and issues with SFC

    Hi Folks

    I have four PCs at home - 3 of which are now proudly running SP1 for Vista,
    but the one refuses to install the update.

    So I head over to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947366/en-us, as directed
    and run all 5 of the resolutions suggested, with no errors anywhere, except
    for that pesky SFC tool.

    I've been crawling through the posts here and see that I'm not the only one
    who has this issue... SFC runs, completes verification and then announces
    that there are corrupt files that cannot be repaired.

    So I do the findstr thing and pour line-by-painful-line through the
    outputted TXT file only to discover that the log contains no errors - not
    one. Not even a warning.

    Bottom line - no 100% happy SFC, no SP1. Can someone help me with my SFC
    woes? (or a workaround that does not involve a re-installation of the OS - I
    am so over that already).

    Thanks
    Jonathan

  2. Hello Jonathan,
    The SFC issue where there is nothing recorded is due to sfc reporting
    driver files missing from the temp folder.
    This is not a problem with the OS nor will this block the service pack from
    installing.

    The driver files are copied to a temp location during installation then
    removed as they should be.
    Sfc is reporting them missing from the temp folders.

    What messages\errors does the service pack give you when it fails to
    install?

    Thanks,
    Darrell Gorter[MSFT]
