0x8007f0cc - STATUS_KERNEL_NONSTD
The core system file (kernel) used to start this computer is not a Microsoft
Windows file. The Service Pack will not be installed.
Can happen if you have altered the "boot.ini" file by creating a custom boot
screen or you have used software like Style XP to alter the boot screen.
If you altered the "boot.ini" file and made a custom boot screen then, you
may need to investigate the following article if you didn't back up first:
HOW TO: Edit the Boot.ini File in Windows XP
Error message when you try to install a service pack in Windows XP: "Windows
has detected that one or more protected core system files (kernel) on your
computer have been modified"
