Error 8024000B is indicative of the Windows update service not able to complete. Sounds like it got stuck in the middle of an update and now doesn't know which way to go.

Boot into safe mode (F8 at startup), and log in as administrator (or under and admin account). Go into control panel, Add/Remove Programs - if the latest update that you were trying to download is listed there, select it and remove it. After removal, reboot and you should be back in business.

If not listed, go into System Restore (if enabled) and choose the restore point PRIOR to the Windows update, and restore your system that way.

Then, if you want to download it again, go for it.

Hope this helps - remember to rate!

    I think, in BIOS setting your first booting device is the 60GB HDD. change it to HDD0 as 1st boot, CD Drive as 2nd boot and HDD1 as third boot device and it would not ask any error report.

    This means that microsoft has deemed your computer as not having the system requirements for the service pack.
    Could be something as simple as you haven't installed service pack 1 ans 2 yet..
    I would use windows update on your start menu, take all the recommended updates, generally once the updates required for service pack 3 are installed , then the next time you run windows update it will look for the next set of updates. sometimes it takes 2 or 3 update sessions to get the one you want if you havent updated your computer in some time..
    regards..
