    and MS/your OEM cannot help, try reinstalling your OS and choose the repair
    option after you get to the point where it looks for previous installations
    and locates your partition.
    I suggest skipping the registration again.

    After trying everything else here, and a few other things that didn't work,
    this did. A few other suggestions:

    -Disable your system restore before beginning IF you backed up your system.
    System restore can cause a big delay in the update and SP2 update. Please do
    this ONLY if you backed up beforehand for obvious reasons. Don't forget to
    restore it when done!

    -Turn off your anti-virus for this (these) update(s) only (or enable its
    snooze if applicable) and allow your firewall to access the WU site. Remember
    to reable your AV and FW access when done if disabled!

    Hope this helped, as it did for me!
