I cannot add features to a Visual Studio 2010 installation with the SP1 Beta installed. I have to uninstall the SP1 first (which often fails).

Thanks for reporting the issue.

Could you please upload a setup log file to help us investigate the issue?
You can get the log files with the following steps:
1) Download collect.exe from the link below. http://go.microsoft.com/?LinkId=8967043
2) You may choose to save the tool for later use, or to run directly.
3) The utility creates a compressed cabinet of all the VS and .NET logs to %TEMP%\vslogs.cab.

You can get more details about how to get the log files here:

Thanks again for your efforts and we look forward to hearing from you.

1. Uninstall SP1 Beta first... this has a tendency to fail. You'll need VS2010 installation media mounted or unpacked somewhere. I had to manually point the uninstall process to some x64 prereqs MSI and an EF tools MSI.
2. Then you can modify your installation.
