    Every time I rebooted my laptop windows runs through preparing to configure windows, then configuring the service pack, starting at 35% and finishing on 37% and then boots windows normally. This is very annoying to go through everytime I reboot. I ran the portable fix it program from microsoft to fix windows update problem but it doesn't help.

    I booted into safe mode to try uninstall the service pack to reinstall but now when it reboots it says preparing to configure windows, then failure to configure service pack, reverting changes. Now it does this every time.

    I've tried running windows updates to try to reinstall but it just seems to go on forever. I have also run the System update readiness tool from microsoft but it does the same as the windows updates, runs continuously.

    Any information would be appreciated.

    Make sure you are not infected. Turn off antivirus and antimalware tools. Set all services to their default settings.

    A service pack is a major upgrade. It basically upgrades your system to a new operating system. All precautions and preparations that you would make for upgrading to a new OS should also be followed for installing a service pack.

    If you have used a registry cleaner, they can prevent reinstallations and upgrades from being possible. You can get an undamaged registry through System Restore if you have any points prior to using the cleaner or any other "system tools" from third parties.

    Then try managed's solution of reinstalling from the full downloaded installer.

    If that fails, you should try reinstalling in afe Mode.
