I think it is the critical updates that need to be installed first.

yup, but those are automatic. that is, windows updater does that first then recommends the sp2.

Why are you bothering with SP2 when SP3 has been out for over 2 yrs? Don't use Windows Update, download it directly from M$, then install it.
