Hey,

My windows 7 machine has 7 updates it tries to install but sits on 0% at boot for about 15 minutes before rolling back.

It rolls back fine, and I can use the machine once it boots, but after a while it just tries to install them again and we go through the same probs.

Anyone had similar issues? Any tips as to how I might go about diagnosing?

I noticed the same issue yesterday morning after installing updates the night before.

Didn't go near my PC last night so havent troubleshooted.

Try boot into safemode after install then restart again.

To temporarily fix this problem, I suggest rolling back your pc before the windows 7 update and disable your windows 7 automatic updating, by going to the control panel and selecting Windows Update. (and untick the slected updates).
Therefore untill someone comes up with a better solution, or if Microsoft releases a new patch to fix this, I would recommend this in the short run

After turning automatic updat off you could install one by one to find which update is causing it. Post it here and I will see if someone at Microsoft can check it.

One thing that has crossed my mind - for some reason my PC hasn't installed SP1 yet. Installing it now, wonder if they need SP1 to install....

Pretty bad if that is the case :(

Well, fancy that. Installed SP1 then installed the updates and it worked! Why it didn't install SP1 automatically, or figure out it needed SP1 before it tried to install who knows...

Installing them manually one by one worked for me.

I just disabled realtime virus checking for the duration of the updates (using MSE).

Same thing happened to mine, do the following if still having issues:


- Control Panel
- in the search tab, type Troubleshoot
- click the Troubleshoot tab
- under System and Security hit "Fix Problems with Windows updates"




I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.

My Win7-64 Q6600 box did some updates in the last day or two and works fine.
