Vista SP1 install fails with code 80070079 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to update Windows Vista Business with SP1, but it keeps failing with the error code 80070079. It seems to fail consistently after the download reaches about 50MB (or 14%). I have over 60GB of hard drive space available, so I know it's not running out of room, but wasn't sure where to go from here. Any suggestions would certainly be appreciated...
