0X80070002 Vista sp1 doing my head in RRS feed

    Problem Description: I have followed all the instructions in the links
    below, and none worked even a complete re-format and re-install.


    I have re-installed vista, no third party software,and repeated the above still no sucess.

    Then, I tried the following below still, the error persists.



    I have disabled Lan and USB in the bios too, and still not working. The machine has not other sotfware on.

    Last I tried this, still the same problem

    Firstly, take ownership of the "Backup" folder and grant full control permissions in the ACL table for "Backup" folder. To do this, use commands below or refer to this guide for more ways to perform the required action.

    takeown /F %WinDir%\WinSxS\Backup /r /d y
    cacls %WinDir%\WinSxS\Backup /g administrators:f

    Secondly, regenerate and recreate all files under "Backup" folder with empty or blank content. There are hundreds of files. To make thing easier, download and execute the winsxs-backup.bat which contains a series of commands to create empty (nul) files with correct filenames in the affected folder.

    Thirdly, delete the temporary update files as instructed by Microsoft Help for 80070002 error code in Windows Update. Use the following commands. This step may not needed, you can try to check or install updates, and perform this step is the process still fail and unsuccessful.

    net stop wuauserv
    del /s /q %WinDir%\SoftwareDistribution\

    del /s /q %WinDir%\SoftwareDistribution\
    net start wuauserv

    Still the errors persists

    I have removed one memore stick, so running only on 1GB.

    NO errors were found with the readiness tools,

    but with SFC /scannow, some corrupted files it says. I do not have a clue to read that log. I have changed HDD new ones, and re-installed still sfc .scannow saying corrupted files exist

    I can email the logs when you replied back


    Please note, nothing is installed on the computer. I completely reformatted everything

    3. Click "Turn Windows features on or off" on the left pane.

    In-Place upgrade (Repair install)

    1. Start the computer by using the current Operating System.

    3. Use one of the following procedures, as appropriate:

    b. Click Install now.

    then  sp1 was installed again, still the errors persist
