Windows Service Pack 1 Failed with Error Code 0x80070643

Hi people,

There is a probably a million reasons why Windows 7 SP1 will fail to install. Below is my tail. An Error occurred and in the event log it shows:

Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x80070643: Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2510531).

You should find more details in c:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log and in this case I found.

SPI: (PerformSPInstallation:812)Insufficient disk space hr=0x800f0828

Once you increase the desk space Sp1 will install

  1. Thank you for helping me solve my problem. Knowing where to find the log file is the key. That, and knowing that this update needs many gigs of free space.
