Windows 7 SP 1 error code 7e

I'm trying to install SP1 on a Windows 7 Home machine. I keep getting error code 7e.  Googling that doesn't really give me any good answers.  I've tried the MS fixits, and running the manual instructions for resetting windows update components. I keep getting the same error. Anybody ever solve this one?

I have not tried the System Update Readiness Tool. I'll look at that now.  

The machine is standalone.

I have tried several different MS Fix Its, and they haven't worked.  I can try this one.
The Update tool installed another update that was out there with SP1, but won't install SP1 itself.  SP1 won't install normally after running the tool, either.

The Fix It won't run. Says Troubleshooting cannot continue because an error has occurred.
Try to install SP1 in a clean boot:

Will that work?

Same failure on SP1.

Of the three updates, two are installed. KB2534366 is not installed, and when I downloaded and tried to install it, it said it didn't apply to my machine.
Nobody better than MS at making people waste huge amounts of time on non-problems.  I'm tired of screwing with this, so I just nuked it and restored it to factory default. We'll see what happens when SP1 tries to install now.  Thanks for the help.
