Destination.msi issue (O/S = Vista SP1)

During boot up, windows installer is trying to find destination.msi at some default file path it thinks it should be but. I've been searching & searching forums and posts for answers and don't seem to get a good one... It would seem my registry cleaner killed it at some point. I think it has to do with a HP 6840 network printer installed on my network... I have searched the cd for the file to try to replace and don't seem to be able to locate it... Please provide some direction here...

Hard drive will not completely finish installing Vista Sp1.


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.

Try booting into safe mode.
If you can, I suggest getting rid of Norton. The drivers are not compatable with vista.
Vista has a ton of issues and many types of softwhere will not run or work.
If you want a good virus software, use the new software from Microsoft.

Read this tutorial on JSKYS site.

Follow each step carefully. If you can't make the repair

with these steps...download the 64-bit version of

Windows 7 Beta at this link. If you lack the capability

to burn an ISO image to a DVD then skip this step.

We recently installed 7 onto a Vista loaded laptop

with a damaged boot sector. Your files will be saved to

a folder during installation. Once you complete the installation

of 7 you can reinstall Vista on the original partition.

This type of troubeshooting takes a bit of experience and a

load of patience.


I hope this will help you get your teeth into it.
