Microsoft says it will no longer offer support to vista unless you have service pack 2 installed. But what happens when you can not install service pack 2. I have tried everything to try to get the service pack 2 installed. I turned off my antivirus, I disabled all the startup items, I tried to install it in safemode. I disabled the UAC, still get the same error message. I reinstalled the operating system using the HP restore discs, still I get the following error: error code 80070059. I even had microsoft send me the service pack on a dvd, still I get the same error message. It starts to install, it shutsdown the computer so that it can continue the install it then goes so far then, it hangs up for a while then it starts reversing all the changes that it made and tells me that the service pack can not install, it will try again after the sytem reboots. The computer reboots and tries to install the service pack again, but it ends up reversing the changes it makes and then shows that it can not install due to the error: error code 80070059. I am using VISTA Home Premium 32 bit, and have a HP Pavilion DV 2700 notebook, with a AMD Truion 2.0 Ghz 64X2 CPU and 3 gb ram.
