Troubleshooting Service Pack Installation

In general, service pack installation requires 60 MB of storage space on the hard drive plus any space used as swap space. If the service pack does not install, you may wish to open the Services applet from the control panel, and disable services. Then reboot the computer, and try installing the service pack again. Service Pack 3 or 4 should be reinstalled whenever drivers are reinstalled. For instance, some error messages are generated after reinstalling network adapter drivers, and not reapplying SP3. These errors are present in event viewer.
