    What were you doing when you got this error?

    It has nothing to do with your video card from MSI, but with Microsoft Installer.

    well some data has obviously not been written
    this could be a problem with your hdd starting to snuff it. or maybe RAM has a bad area. but it could be a bad sector or an illegal operation by something... just carry on as usual and see if anything else happens. as it has only happened once theres not enough evidence to conclude anything.

    I continued to installed sp1 and it said it was installed successfully

    I'll chk disk also doing a clean install, and ant to make a good image of the drive.

    I used to get those errors, but it was to $Mft. One of my maxtor hdd's was goin out and it kept screwin up with disk writes. I ran chkdsk /x /f /v /r to check for errors. I later had to do a full scan with the MaxBlast diagnostic software and use it's utilities to fix it.

    If it is a one time occurence then it probably isn't the hardware, I had a maxtor 40gb that was doing this non stop, turned out to be faulty.
