My guess is that you got your hands on a copy of SP1 that is NOT from Microsoft. Since they have not put it out. So my guess would be that this file has corrupted your system.
What does the BSOD say? There should be a Stop code and a line that is in all Caps that says something. Give us that info.
No no, not SP1 it was a standard KB (enter randomn numbers) security update from Microsoft. The BSOD was just random I guess, I tried a few times and later on it worked. I ended up using my Vista32 disc to do a startup repair on my vista install, and then rolling back with a recovery point and that worked.
The way Im guessing and heard, is that the one update says its done downloading, but isnt, so windows restarts and when it comes to install/configure the update at startup it cannot find it since there is nothing there, which makes windows go into the startup/shutdown sequence over and over.
Thanks for the reply though.
