Problem updating windows 7 sp1
For Windows 7, SP1 is simply a combination of updates already available through Windows Update and additional hotfixes based on feedback by customers and partners.From the server side, two key new features have been included: in R2 and allows IT administrators to pool all the memory available on a physical host and dynamically distribute it to virtual machines running on that host as necessary.
Then did a normal windows update and it had another ~30 and I was all up to date again :)I'm just duplicating my comment I posted in thread for similar question here for the benefit of others struggling with this: I just spent couple of days in company of old laptop with 2GB of RAM and can confirm that issue seems to be x64 poor hardware/insufficient RAM specific.
The same problem may affect 32-bit systems as well, and I'm not sure what the update number for that would be, but the solution should work for either one. Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
The update starts just fine, chugs along for 10 minutes or so, then reboots the system and starts performing more operations, when suddenly one of them fails about 10% down the road, reboots, and reverts the whole process. Even though there are no integrity violations, we should have enough info in the log to diagnose the problem.
You end up with this message (code 80070490) and a failure for which there are a lot of useless "solutions" on the web that just don't work. I can't take credit for it – all I did was spend a month weeding through the crap, retrying, and getting nowhere, until a genius by the name Ben-IS came up with exactly the right diagnosis and provided exactly the right solution. We are going to use a utility called SFC (System File Checker or Windows Resource Checker), which is part of the Windows installation. Open up a command prompt (cmd) as administrator and run This will run for a while and produce a file called which you can find in %WINDIR%\Logs\CBS (usually C:\Windows\Logs\CBS). Unfortunately, Windows overwrote my CBS.log, so I'll go by the one Ben-IS provided.
See this KB929833 for more info on SFC and CBS (Component Based Servicing). Open up and look for something like Failed uninstalling driver updates or 0x80070490 – ERROR_NOT_FOUND.Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems Installation date: 7/4/2013 PM Installation status: Failed Error details: Code 80070002 Update type: Important Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 for x64-based Systems (KB2836942) Installation date: 7/3/2013 PM Installation status: Failed Error details: Code 800706BA Update type: Recommended I am getting a lot of Failed notices, what is happening that a lot is not updating please help.
