This forum specializes in the Dell line of netbooks - we don't tend to have expertise on other brands. But it sounds as if you have more general Windows problems. Try Home - Microsoft Community

I have had the same problem with my Mini 1018. It won't update the Service Pack 1. I have resorted to a fresh install. I am taking the opportunity to install Win 7 64 bit.

Intel Atom processor is only 32 bit. You might try a fresh install of the 32 bit OS as it should update without a problem.

The Dell Mini 1018 can run the 64 bit operating system. I think the 1012 can run 64 bit as well. The Atom CPUs N450 (1012) and N455 (1018) appear to be ok for 64 bit. The Mini 9 and 1010 can't.


I solved the problem with the updates. I installed Service Pack 1 manually and then used the Windows Update to install the other updates.


Again they wouldn't install. I searched the Microsoft site and found a hotfix KB947821 fixed the update problem.
