Exit Computer Management and retry your SP1 install. It will also maximize performance and drastically increase speed and start-up time, as well as keep your system updated with the latest drivers & security protection. I had a similar issue when I was installing Win7 to the SATA disk, where it would let me choose the partition but wouldn't install to it.

I'm dualbooting Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04, and this is the first time I got this error message. Just tripple checking, that is what i want to do in my specific dual boot case correct?

That was until I stumbled upon this article. Make sure the system partition is being automatically mounted. I'm using two SSDs, one with Windows 7 and one with Ubuntu. And if i need to undo what im doing after i have installed SP1 so the dual boot will be normal, and if i do, how do i do that?

Or how to do that (then undo it when i want it to go back to how its setup). :/ CM HAF 922, Win 7 Pro 64bit, Ubuntu 10.04 64bit, Asus From what I’ve read on the interweb the installation of SP1 has become downright frustrating for many. You can then select the automatic boot repair tool, but it often will not do any good. They can also damage the computer's file system and hard drive, causing serious loss of data.

and no HP driver DVD either. All I had to do was open a command prompt, running it elevated as Administrator, and type “mountvol /E” at the command prompt.

When i click on details on why it failed, it says: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...ror-0x800F0A12 I can only imagine that this has to do with my Dual Boot. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/34515-63-update-problem Make sure you a minimum of 1GB free space on the boot drive. 0x800f0a12 I set up my dualboot on two separate hard drives, so there's only one partition on my dedicated Windows drive. Easybcd This partition was not being automatically mounted and as a result the update to SP1 was failing.

Only this Win 7 64 bit SP1 does not work.I do not have the laptop with me but the error is different. Then click "OK", and "OK" again.2. Remember that the list always begins counting at 0.

I want my 80Gb to have Ubuntu on it, but not have dual boot.

I just googled it, lol you could have just told me to go into the Command Prompt and type diskpart then type automount enable .... On the left-hand side, open up "Disk Management" (under "Storage") by clicking on it.3. assuming you are running Win 7. But I didn't.
