*****************************************
I just solved an identical problem to this a few days ago here is the link:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/topics/comp/os-ms-windows/setup/nt/Q.10094730 

Here was my answer:
I had the exact problem last week. Reinstall service pack 4. The reason this happens is that the server service srv.sys was not on the hard drive until you added networking. if you run service pack 3 (4 is out now so you might want to use it instead) it will put the updated srv.sys on the hard drive.

I know you installed service pack 3, but just try running update again. you probably have the wrong version of srv.sys
