    so, i've got this weekend off from work and decided to get sp1 (just in case shit went wrong i could fiddle with my OS). from what i've heard it IS available off of windows update. i went there and it's not listed. does that mean i have some software installed on my pc that msu found incompatible and therefore won't let me update? it doesn't bother me at all that i don't have sp1 installed, but would like to know why. next format i'll install it i guess.

    "Windows Update will automatically install SP1 on computers that are configured to receive updates through Automatic Updates".


    Try enabling auto update see what happens ?

    It may be that MS has flagged your hardware as incompatible for some reason.
    Update wasn't offering it to me either so I went to MS Download (not Update) and grabbed the multi-language standalone install package and installed that.

    Worked fine.
