SP2 Fails To Install Windows Server 2008 Enterprise x64

I have a Windows Server 2008 Enterprise x64 that will not allow me to install SP2.  When I try to install the SP, it eventually states that I must install SP1 first.  SP1 is already installed.  If I try to install the updates with Windows Updates, I get an error of 800B0100.  This is with ANY of the updates I attempt and not just SP2.

This server is running Hyper-V in a cluster environment, but currently all the other virtual guests are on the other server in the cluster environment.

I have it fixed.  I did it by performing the following:

1. Downloaded Windows6.0-KB947821-v7-x64. This tool is being offered because an inconsistency was found in the Windows servicing store which may prevent the successful installation of future updates, service packs, and software.

2. Reviewed the CheckSUR.log file found at C:\Windows\Logs\CBS which reports missing files for an update that failed to install.

3. Copied the files reported by the CheckSUR.log file to the C:\Windows\servicing\Packages

4. Ran Windows6.0-KB947821-v7-x64 again so it could repair the failed update then checked the CheckSUR.log file to confirm there were no more errors.

5. Restarted the server and successfully installed sp2.

My reason is: I closed this question improperly.  I had found the solution provided by vukovarcan at http:#a31968146  before I posted on EE.  However, it wasn't until vukovarcan's post that I re-read the solution provided at the link he provided that I came up with my ultimate solution at http:#a31994741.  I'd like to award the points to the solution at http:#a31968146  provided by vukovarcan.
