    Can anyone help me with this i am trying to install service pack 1 so i will be able to install Windows 7. I have tried reinstalling several times now and it fails every time. I have tried following the renaming directory folders and such and they always tell me to run command "net stop WuAuServ" Well since a while back my command prompt doesn't recognize even the most simple of commands.. I was kind of hoping that SP1 and Windows 7 could help em with this problem but of course i cant even get them working.

  •         Hi Coreydl,

    You can try these steps to install SP1 on the Computer.
     
    1.      
    Uninstall Antivirus programs(if any) installed on your Computer if you have a resource to reinstall it back.

             2.       If you do not have a resource to reinstall the anti-virus, disable all third party services and startup items to avoid conflict during the SP1 installation by following the steps below.
    Click on start -> Type in msconfig(in start search box) -> Hit enter -> Choose Services tab -> Check “Hide all Microsoft services” checkbox -> Disable all -> Choose Startup tab -> Disable all -> Apply -> Ok -> Exit without restart.

            3.       Type in the following commands one by one and hit enter:
        net stop wuauserv
        net stop bits
        cd c:\Windows
        ren softwaredistribution sd
        cd c:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Network 
        rename Downloader Downloader.old 
        net start wuauserv
        net start bits

    4.     Exit the command prompt, download System update readiness tool appropriate for the edition of Vista you have (32-bit or 64-bit) from the following link and run it. (NOTE: Please note that it could take around 30 minutes for the Readiness tool to run. Wait until you get a message saying that the installation is complete)

    e.Please put a check mark under 'I Agree' in the End user License Agreement screen and click 'Next'.     
    f.Choose 'Upgrade Installation' among the two options in the next windows that appears to start the upgrade installation.
    g.Please wait till the upgrade completes. Your computer might restart multiple times and the screen might flicker.
    h.Go through the on-screen instructions at the end of the installation.

    Hope this helps!
