When I run SBS BPA, advises SP1 is required.  When I run SP1 advises "Setup has detected that the service pack version of this system is newer than the update you are applying.  There does not seem to be a way to successfully remove SP2 so we can install SP1. Please advise is you know.

It's not asking for Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1, it's asking for Windows Small Business Server 203 Service Pack 1.  They are different.

Ok... and if you SKIP step 2A because you already have a newer Service Pack installed?  Are you saying the Sharepoint Service Pack fails and the Exchange Service Pack fails?

You have a service pack NEWER than SP1 - so SP1 shouldn't be necessary.  Keep in mind that documentation was written BEFORE SP2 was ever released!

SBS BPA is advising it is required.  On other SBS 2003 systems, we do not receive this message!
If we could uninstall SP2 then install SP1, followed by SP2 it may fix report.

Post the screen shot of what SBS BPA is saying.... because what I suspect it's saying is that you need the SBS Service Pack 1 (Step 6 on the link you posted, NOT Step 2).

Evenually we removed most of the security updates, then we were able to install SP1 followed by SP2, plus a few SBS Restart's, now been operational for this week.  Thanks to Lee W for the input and reply.
