Catastrophic failure when installing Service Pack 2

Each time I attempt to install SP2 on a Windows 2008 Standard server I receive this error message. The error return code seems to be quite generic so I'm unsure where to begin. This server has the role of a File/Print server with multiple partitions. Besides that, it's pretty basic, no fancy setups. Also, it's not a physical server, it's running as a virtual server.

Any thoughts?
