Installed everything I listed and looked back at what had been installed prior to reinstall. There were quite a few.

Rebooted and I'm back here.

Where did I get that network error? Wasn't it at the Add/Remove Windows Setup. Should I go back? I think it went through the second time.

Feel better about that. Is there anyway to verify that? Just want to make sure that it's not picking up on something that was overwritten from prior updates and that they really are installed.
