Exchange 2013 SP1 Upgrade, Server Reboots During Step 3 "Copy Exchange Files"

While upgrading Exchange 2013 to the new SP1, the installer reaches step 3, "Copying Exchange Files", sits at 0% for 10-15 minutes and then when without warning the machine will reboot.

The last couple logs from ExchangeSetup.log are:

[02/28/2014 00:16:58.0878] [1] Installing MSI package 'C:\Exchange2013SP1\exchangeserver.msi'.
[02/28/2014 00:16:58.0878] [1] No updates directory was specified for the msi installation.

This isn't something I have seen on any of the installations I have done.
What else is on the server? At the moment a lot of people have stopped SP1 installations because of a bug with the transport agents and third party products Like Exclaimer and GFI Mail Essentials.

My instinct though is that this a problem outside of Exchange particularly if the machine is rebooting. However download a fresh copy of the service pack, just in case the copy you have is corrupt in some way.

Nothing else is on the server itself.

Have tried re-downloading it multiple times.
Have tried an unattended install within an elevated command prompt.

Its been our thought that its something with the server itself. So we're building up a new one, and can hopefully move the data to it, and then do a recovery-install of Exchange off of that.

Anything in the Event Logs themselves? Specifically the System and Application logs around the time of the install/reboot?

Event viewer would open, but never load any of the events, and eventually would time-out and unload itself in a crash.

I've moved my data to a  new server, and am attempting to do a recover install, but am running into problems. I'll post a new question on that.
