    I'm trying to install SP1. I'd love to tell you what the error message is when I run sp1, but the dialog box comes and goes in a split second.

    I also get this mystery message when I attempt to extract the files and try to run it manually (if that's even possible). This leads me to believe that my file is corrupt, but I doubt it.

    I also tried going to do the update directly from Microsoft's web site (which I don't like doing) and that didn't work either. Still no readable error message.

    Any suggestions?

    There should be a file svcpack.log in your Windows directory. Open it with notepad and see if you can find some information there. Also eventviewer may be a place to look at.

    Try redownloading SP1. That's all I can really say, aside from buying a legit XP.

    XP will not work with blacklisted CD keys.

    Perhaps you just changed it to another blacklisted one.

    Yeah I dont see a point in this thread... Help a person with an illegal copy of Windows XP is a big no-no here. Dont ask for help on that, it is against the forum guidelines.
