Hi,

i tried to update to service pack 1 for my home vista, so as to get my
laptop webcam working (advice from HP website). But halfway installing the

Re: Error upgrading to vista service pack 1
The year-long, free support for Vista SP1 installation issues ended over a

You receive a "0x80070490" error code when you use Windows Update or
Microsoft Update Web sites to install updates:
