RPC Failed Error while installing Windows 2008 R2 SP1 RC

I have a ticket in with Microsoft regarding this issue, but I thought I'd give the experts a try as well.  I have a clustered Hyper-V server running 2008 R2 Datacenter and it receives the following error whenever I run Service Pack 1 RC. The error occurs right after the GUI screen "Preparing your computer..."

Error: RPC_S_CALL_FAILED(0X900706BE)

I have successfully installed on a node currently in the cluster that is running identical hardware and software. The system is a Dell R900.

I have run the System Update Readiness Tool and am seeing an error with package files for KB2286198_RTM. I have downloaded the update and extracted the package files. After replacing the corrupted files with the package files, the error continues.  I've tried uninstalling, however, the uninstall just sits there, but doesn't seem hung.

I've attached a copy of the CBS.log file and the SURT log. CBS.log CheckSUR.log

I think I may have found the difference between this system and all the other systems that successfully install.  This system has an installed update for KB2286198_BF and KB2286198.  The BF one doesn't have any entry data next to it, and uninstalling doesn't do anything.  The uninstall just closes.  Any ideas?

I would hold off before making any other changes to the system if you have a call opened with MS. You could be causing more issues if you are changes things that should not be changed. Wait until you get the call back from MS to proceed with any other changes.

Even Microsoft proved to be stumped.  I just rebuilt server and the SP1 RC installed successfully.
