I've now installed SP1 on both my T60 and T30. SP1 installed flawlessly in 30 minutes on the T60 but the above error was encountered on the T30.
Both machines had retail Windows 7 Professional installed and were fully patched prior to the availability of SP1. The only difference was the presence, or otherwise, of the 100Mb System partition.
When I installed Windows 7 on the T60 I decided, during the Windows 7 setup, to remove the 100Mb System partition. Therefore, my system, boot and active partition were one and the same, namely C:
On the T30 I had left setup to create the 100Mb system partition, as recommended by Microsoft.
It was the T30 system with the separate 100Mb system partition that had the error.
The workaround was to mount the system partition prior to starting the SP1 install.
Everything looks fine post upgrade so will probably upgrade my desktop next week.
