Keep getting the error message ERROR_NOT_FOUND 0x80070490 when trying to download SP1 for windows 7 pro 64 bit. Used many different sources to download the service pack and still no luck!!! Have downloaded System update readiness tool from microsoft which says it will correct the issue but has not done so...

Any suggestions anyone???

download the full file SP1 and install it instead of going through windows update.

I have had the same problem on several clients computers. The standalone does not normally work


However make sure you do download it you will need it later.

you have to do an "upgrade" repair install on your windows. baislcy it removes all updates to date.. once you have done this b4  connecting to the net run the standalone windows 7 service pack 1.

To do an upagrade repair you need a copy of Windows 7 that matches the Certificate of authentication on your computer

eg. if you have windows 7 32 bit home premium COA you need a disk that matches that.

Note this can take a couple of hours for it to run through.

rather than me retyping infomation that is already out there this link will show you how to do upgrade repair. what ever you do dont do a custom install it may loose all of your data

Oh forgot to say. when i do it i choose not to look for updates online. and also make sure im disconnected from the net before i start incase windows decides to download updates that will scrw with you fresh (no update installed) copy of windows 7. if it does download em b4 you install the sp1 you run the risk of having to do the upgrade repair again.

its not as scary as it sounds. hard part is getting the correct disk if you didnt get one with your computer.
