Fresh restore on an Eee PC1005HAB netbook. Windows Update says there's 137 important updates and 3 optional updates available. So I let it go with all the important ones. Downloads them all, installs, craps out and reverts everything so it's right back to where it was after restoring from the hidden partition on the SSD.

So I checked the version, not SP1, so I get SP1 for 32bit Windows 7. It extracts, churns about for a long time then pukes out this error. ERROR_SXS_ASSEMBLY_MISSING(0x80073701)

To quote someone else dealing with this same error from SP1... "I have run the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 at http://support.micro...kb/947821/en-us and all is reported to be well."

So that didn't work, any other ideas?

Why won't Microsoft fix this? Will we ever see a "Sure fire, guarranteed fix for ERROR_SXS_ASSEMBLY_MISSING(0x80073701) when attempting to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1."?

That's about it. Looks like the restore was unsuccessful. Any chance it might be corrupted?
