To fix the problem:

1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart the computer.
2. Choose your language settings and click next.
3. Click "repair your computer"

It also gives me the following options:

4. Safe Mode
5. Safe Mode with networking
6. Safe Mode with Command Prompt
7. Last known good configuration
8. Start Windows normally

no matter wich options I choose my computer either freezes or takes me back
to this screen.

I am able to repair and restore my computer by using my vista upgrade disk
but this whole problem reocures everytime I retry to install SP1
