Cannot install Windows Vista Service Pack 2. The following error message appears: 0X800707d1

Hello

Three years ago, I bought a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop. Never met a problem until I tried to install Windows Vista Service Pack 2. I already followed each step instructions Support of Microsoft issues Service Pack for any result or solution. In these cases, I have downloaded the pack update directly from the wepage of Windows Vista, installed Windows Update Readiness Tool, disabled my antivirus (McAfee) and came up with nothing. I even tried to install this update in Mode safe but also failed to install Service Pack 2.

What is happening all the time, is that I double click on archive downloaded in order to install (having already started my computer in Mode safe mode with networking reportoire and disabled the antivirus as well as its firewall). The Service Pack window opens and I click 'Next' for all the necessary instructions, including 'the computer automatically restarts. When the toolbar installation is completed, the computer automatically goes to restart itself. 3 steps appear as a requirement for the completion of the installation process. All goes well until he reaches "step 3 of 3:100% finished. Do not turn off your computer. After about ten minutes of stall in this step, the following message appears on the screen: "the Service Pack cannot be installed, returning from changes. Do not turn off your computer.

The computer then rolls back all the changes and initiated in the normal state. After the opening, the first window that appears displays the following message: "the specific driver is not valid. "(Details): error: ERROR_BAD_DRIVER (0x800707d1). I proceeded to check and update alone driver of my computer, then try again to install the Windows Vista SP2 and all the operation has been a failure. I was cracking my head trying to solve this particular problem, and each time the same error pops up. I am seriously considering reformatting Windows Vista from manufacturer CD from my Dell, but I don't know if that would help.

If someone could help or advise with everything that I would appreciate it a lot.

Kind regards

Rodrigo
