I've been running Windows 7 for a while now on Boot Camp, and have been getting a lot of crashes and BSOD's lately. Checked to see if I was up-to-date with my windows updates. Found out that I didn't have SP1 installed. Thinking this may something to do with it...


Anyway, I've been trying for weeks now to install SP1, and it always fails. I've tried all the Microsoft recommended solutions and more, to no avail. Now, I'm attempting a repair install in my last ditch effort to keep from doing a clean install and having to re-install the handful of windows-based programs I use.


When I insert the Windows 7 disc and run it, the error code 0x80070005 appears. I downloaded and attempted to install Apple_Win7_Upgrade_Utility.exe, but I get an error message saying it can't be installed in this OS.


Anything else I can try?
