Vista - Error Code: 0X80070490 (Can't install SP2)

**** Orgial title: Error_not_found (0x80070490) - 64bit Vista

Helo,

when I try to instal SP2 for 64bit Vista, I got the message: "Error_not_found (0x80070490)" .

I ran the sfc scan and it shows the message "found corruption that it could not repair" . I tried to open the sfc log file but When I type "notepad sfcdetails.txt" at the command prompt adn press Enter the notepad opens but empty.

Here are the specifications of my computer
AMD Turion(tm) x2 dual core mobile rm72 2.10GHz, 4G - memory ram, 64bit Vista Home Premium
 
What can I do to solve this problem?

Hi,

please run the Windows Explorer and go to the folder "C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\" and copy the file "CBS.log" to your document folder (otherwise you can't open it) and open it with notepad. Now search for errors. Which errors do you see?

If you are unsure, please upload the complete CBS.log to your SkyDrive [1] and post a link here.
