Thanks for your reply Darude1234, I did try what you suggested and the System Update Readiness Tool does not complete, it just simply hangs at the progression bar does not progress, just hangs,,

Run chkdsk on the boot drive/partition (to make sure the drive is not an issue)
Boot into safe mode and try installing it from there

Something which is simple that has helped me is to just check the Pre-Checks in the below link:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff817650(WS.10).aspx#BKMK_predep

It run's through the checks and has links to different tools and links to help with the deployment of SP1. It helped me out when I was running into Issues deploying it as there can be alot of problems.

I'd start with the system log. See what is found and verify you have plenty if free disk space. I'm assumed your logged in as the administrator and you have at least 4 gigs of ram.

I already have a similar problem.
Try to desactivate all program at start up and all no-microsoft service and reboot.
try to install again !

Also check if you have 4GB of space left and you are logged as an admin !!
