    I did all that before, but I did not do "takeown /r /f c:\windows\winsxs". I just took ownership from the folder properties. Is it not the same thing?
    The files did copy to winsxs folder.

    No you wouldnt - once the upgrade is finished, all the drivers remain fine

    And you wont need to install any updates again, because the SP1 contains them all

    it's not. you can't overwrite the files either. you have to delete them from winsxs then place them

    There was no files in winsxs. Just empty folders. I deleted them and then copied the backups.

    You can, as long as you set the proper permissions.
    Taking ownerships only enables a user to edit the permissions associated to a directory or file, not necessarily allows full control of it.
    Only when the permissions being set to Full Control for Administrators can you overwrite the directory and/or files.

    @FDisk
    sfc /SCANNOW is the fastest way to know which system files are you still missing.

    @xira
    Those fixes you posted, a.k.a. the readiness tool, can't restore every missing system files.


    Sorry for the late reply; a guy gotta eat to crap properly. =b

    I know they can't, I was just posting my own anecdotal trial. Nothing worked until I used those archived files + the readiness tool. Then it worked.

    OMG People don't EVER use partition magic that comes with older hiren's boot cd.
    It almost destroyed all my partitions. It did some of it's magic fixes when it booted. And broke the boot. I almost **** my pants.
    Luckily windows DVD was able to repair that.
    OK, I increased some space on C:
    I'll do the sfc report now.

    The old version did. It has a problem with large drives.
    Anyway I ran sfc.

    It said:
    "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaire
    them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For
    example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log

    The system file repair changes will take effect after the next reboot."

    I'll reboot and try installing SP1.
    If it doesn't work I'll post a log.

    If SP1 won't install/work or whatever, can you not just go back to a restore point.

    You can, but trying every single restore point until you find one that enables you to install SP1 is also a hassle.
    Not to mention some people simply turn off System Restore due to limited space.

    As I have already stated, the only fix is to run an upgrade over the top of your current OS

    I tried for hours with all the known fixes without joy.

    MS site says to try one thing, if that fails to format !

    The easiest way to install sp1 is to slipstream it and do a clean install. It takes time but it is worth it.

    If sfc repairs it, then there should be no more errors related to corrupted system files.

    Did you install SP1 from a stand-alone installer or via Windows Update?
    I suggest you to do the latter.


    [edit1]
    Gah, need more coffee; friggin' typo.
    I'll check back later.


    [edit2]
    Run 'services.msc' (Win + R) to open up Services.
    Check whether Windows Event Collector and Windows Modules Installer are being set to Automatic start.
    If not, change them, and then restart.

    After that, try to install SP1 via Windows Update again; 0x800F0826 error usually means you had some previously failed update installations prior to SP1.

    If all else fails, then the best way is probably to just reinstall the OS and that's that. =/

    sfc said it repaired something but it didn't fix the problem.
    I tried installing via windows update. Is there a stand alone? Don't think it matters.

    Anything strange in the log file I attached. It looks huge. Should it be that big?

    It's normal to be that big, usually amounts to double-digit MBs before Windows archives it in a .cab file.

    I've edited my previous post yet again, btw.
    And before you try to install SP1, make sure you don't have any other pending critical updates.
    If you still have, install them first.
