Unable to install SP2

    I am building a server on an IBM xSeries 345 using Windows 2003, R2 with SP1.
    I used the IBM Server Guide CD to start the install so that I don't have to
    deal with drivers, etc. The OS installs fine and before doing anything else,
    I next attempt to install SP2. Soon after the start of the installation
    process I get the following error:
    "Setup could not verify the integrity of the file Update.inf. Make sure the
    Cryptographic service is running on this computer."

    That service is of course running. I have used a couple of different media
    for the Service Pack files and I have started over building the server with
    the same bad result. I have used this same combination of OS, SP, install CD
    and hardware before without issue. This makes me think that it's a hardware
    problem, but I have to wonder why the OS installs okay.

    Does anyone have an idea what this means?

    Thanks for the article, all I had to do was rename edb.log. The only article
    I found when searching on the error was KB940276 and that one didn't apply.

    I still don't understand why it happened on that piece of hardware only,
    especially when I had done this before on similar hardware. I won't worry
    about it though.
