Hope somebody has had this problem too..

Keep trying to install SP2 (on active node as per instructions) and have had
several problems.
When I had all four instances failed onto the node and I was trying to SP
all of them the installer would simply disappear (and close) - no process
remained.
Then I attempted to do the install only to first instance (failing other 3
over to other nodes). Installer was slightly more successful, upgrading all
shared components but failed on the instance based ones e.g. the SQL Service
and Analysis service.

After reboots and several attempts to upgrade these two components of the
first instance (which causes the installer to disappear). I have decided to
upgrade the instance components of another instance via another physical
host. Now the installer seems to just be hanging doing nothing (around 2
hours now). See screen shot. Any one got any advice?
Thanks in advance,
Mark.
