I have been trying to install the Vista SP1 but have repeatedly run up against the error code 0x800F081F. I have tried the solutions suggested on the Microsoft support site to no avail and tried starting Vista in safe mode again to no avail. A Wiki Error entry recommended using ErrorEND software to identify and fix errors on the computer, but a Google search for reviews of ErrorEND suggested that it was a front for a scam. I would welcome any suggestions for getting around this impasse.

Many thanks.

Looks like you can get that error, if:

Vista isnt the final version (it can happen on RC1)
You've used Vlite
It looks like Dell (with some of their systems blocked you from installing SP1)
