Vista Service Pack 2 will not install

I have tried everything that I have found on Google and nothing has worked.  Called Lenovo...........told to check Documents 66956 and 72758.

 

I did that and updated the ThinkVantage software then installing SP2 as told by tech support.............NO GOOD! 

 

Any suggestions...........someone must have figured it out............

 

Thanks

Re: Vista Service Pack 2 will not install

Hi,

    encountered the same problem on my T500/Vista-32.

I successfully installed SP2 a first time via WU.

I then somehow managed to create a slight m..  :-) on my machine and decided to run Rescue and Recovery which led me back to SP1.

I finally succeeded reinstalling SP2 (not via WindowsUpdate-got stuck at some 14%) after several failures by temporarily disconnecting from the network, disabling my internet security program and closing everything in systray (for reasons I ignore, this wasn't necessary on first install).

Cheers,

woofy

Re: Vista Service Pack 2 will not install

Well I have exhausted all measures.  Funny thing is my cheap laptops updated no problem but my Lenovo T61p won't!  Sometimes when you buy high end all you get is a slim wallet!

 

Windows 7 can't come quick enough!
