Yeah, I don't think so. Does anyone know what components the SP1 installer is whining about?

This problem is commonly caused by using third-party products to customize a Windows 7 installation and remove some system components. To fix this problem, follow the steps below to reinstall Windows 7, and then try to install Windows 7 SP1 again.

This is probably code for "We know you're using RemoveWAT, bitch."

Nope, legit copy.

I fixed the issue; it was ATI drivers I removed with DriverSweeper. Apparently, even though I don't have an ATI display, SP1 won't install without them.

But now, the installer spends 10 minutes doing something, then restarts, and then at 1% configuring, says "service pack failure, reverting changes" and then goes to the login screen.

SFC dumped a 60 MB log file, and listed a bunch of shit it couldn't repair, so I'll probably just reinstall over Spring Break. It's still retarded that it refuses to install and won't give any details beyond "an error has occurred".

Legit has nothing to do with it. Smart people remove WAT regardless.
