I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Did you get SP 1 from the Microsoft Download site?  and did you get the correct SP 1?  32 vs 64-bit and correct CPU?

The message above does not look like a Windows message.

I think the link is https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5842
Also verify the download with SHA or MD5 to ensure that download is not corrupted

with all of the above being stated i remember a major problem for windows 7 sp1 was a file check error where it would check your hdd with a quick drive scan for errors or bad sectors. You may want to run a HDD quick check also...

I have not read everything, but here's what I would do.

1] Run Windows Update Troubleshooter
2] Run (From elevated CMD Prompt) sfc /scannow 2-3x (If it finds corruption) then run SFCFix if after 3x there is still corruption post the 3 SFC /SCANNOW runs
3] Deploy the windows update readiness tool
4] Try SP1 again
5] Too much effort trying to fix it beyond this point likely. Just copy all data to external USB or share, take a backup copy of license keys through e.g. Belarc Advisor or Magic Jellybean, and blow away the OS for a fresh clean fast & tidy install.

TS4Bm, I am tried your sfc /scannow solution until id did not find anymore errors. I did not try to download sfcfix. The update fail again. I am going to try two of the other solutions posted and if those work then I will reformat the PC.

Nothing works. It is ok to use a Windows 7 SP1 (the full O/S CD but at the SP1 level) and run a windows upgrade?

One of the steps here was a Windows 7 Repair Install. If truly nothing works, then back up the system, and install Windows 7 fresh. Update drivers and the OS and then install your applications and recover your data.

RaminTechnical AdvisorCommented:
Yes, Windows 7  In-place upgrade with or without SP1 might fix this problem and if not you have to do a clean Install.

As per John & Ramin's comments, yes that is fine. Either upgrade if it allows for this, or run repair from it.
