SP install on SBS 2003 gives referenced memory error
Posted on 2008-06-24
I recently took over as IT for a small company and the servers have not been maintained. Trying to get them up to date on SP and updates but ran into a problem. Looking for a resolution to error, the instruction at "0x7c81596f" referenced memory at "0x00ff10000", The memory can not be "written" while trying to install SP1 on SBS 2003. All of the security patches have been done but the SP have never been installed. The error occurred while performing cleanup of the install. After the attempt it now shows SP 1 is installed when you go to windows explorer and look under help, about windows but, it isnt complete. Ran memtest86+ and did not find any errors in memory and have not seen any other issues memroy related in the server.
The server runs everything for the company at the moment, DC, Exchange, printer services, SQL Server and a small file share. This error complicates the issue because i am in the process of building a new exchange server to break that piece out of SBS and to install exchange 07 it says that my old server needs to be at SP1 to get the updates it needs for DC and Active Directory.
Thanks in advance for any help.
