I had a similar problem installing SP2 for FSX.  This took place several years ago.  I would get part way through the installation, and then it would roll back (not installed).  After much phone discussion with the FSX technician on the help line, they essentially gave up.  They send me a copy of Acceleration, which can be used in place of SP2.  Don't use both at the same time. This approach has worked for several years. 

I hope this helps you.
