Question about Samsung HM060HI Hard Drive
I downloaded Vista Sp1. After computer does automatic reboot it continues to cycle through the process of stating different percentages of installing Vista SP1.
This will continue to cycle over and over again never completing and never reaching the Welcome screen.
Try booting in Safe Mode (press F8 during startup). Once in safe mode, see if you can see the update in the Add/Remove programs from the Control Panel. Make sure the select the "View updates" checkbox.
If it is there, try uninstalling it before you boot in regular mode again.
While in Safe Mode, also disable the automatic Windows update. You can then try to install it manually from the Microsoft site instead.
Microsoft has some more ideas on how to fix SP installation.

If your DVD installation disk is prior to Sp1, and you have SP1 installed on your computer, you will need to uninstall SP1 to complete the in-place upgrade and then reinstall the necessary windows updates .
If you would like to perform the In-place Upgrade, let's refer to the following steps.
1. Start the computer by using the current Operating System.
2. Insert the Windows Vista DVD in the computer's DVD drive.
3. Use one of the following procedures, as appropriate:
• If Windows automatically detects the DVD, the Install now screen appears. Click Install now.
• If Windows does not automatically detect the DVD, follow these steps:
a. Click Start, click Run, type Drive:\setup.exe, and then click OK.
Note Drive is the drive letter of the computer's DVD drive.
b. Click Install now.
4. When you reach the "Which type of installation do you want?" screen, click Upgrade to upgrade the current operating system to Windows Vista.
Please run Windows Update again as you will need to download and install the most current updates.
If you do not have the Windows Vista Installation DVD, I suggest contacting your PC manufacturer to order a backup disk.
Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.
