Call Microsoft. Make sure you have your license handy.

Sounds like your OS is already installed on another system.

do you have the OS installed on another computer? i had that problem and i found out that i had the OS installed on two computers. i downloaded the sp2 to my desktop, extracted the files, burned it to a cd, and then updated through the cd.

Use Autopatcher. Google it. Installs everything from SP2 up to the current updates.
