I have never seen this error before during a SP install, sounds scary!

Have you disabled all AV & security software, before starting the upgrade?

Are you running the SP with full administrative rights?
Rather than running the SP from the download, first extract the files & run the update from the extract.
Have you rebooted the server? There may be previous feature/role or KB installs that are still waiting for a reboot before you can do anything else.

That's why did I ask you the question - at which step does it fail. It failed to take create system restore point for MSR partition at the very start of SP1 installation.
Looks like your BCD had record pointing to MSR but the record was corrupt. Assigning drive letter to MSR then removing it fixes this problem.
