Preferred Solution: wont boot after installing updates. updates not configured correctly reverting change

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: wont boot after installing updates. updates not configured correctly reverting change

Startup repair from the dvd did not work.

I did use this registry defrag program. wonder if that did something to the registry?

Free Registry Defrag

I generally avoid registry cleaning programs because I don't trust them. thought id try it once to see what happened. not sure if this caused the startup issue or something with the windows updates I installed caused it. I did do several restore points. would that help me fix the issue?

Hiya,
 
     It seems that every time that I boot up this laptop, it tries to configures updates that Windows Updater has installed. However, they always fail to configure, resulting in a 15-20 minute wait before getting to my login screen. Honestly, it gets annoying. I've tried doing multiple actions to resolve the problem: updating in a clean boot, attempting to delete the pending.xml files (there are about 292 of them!), running SFCHost, and I really do not want to System Restore this laptop. I couldn't even delete the pending.xml files due to administrative rights I could not surpass. I don't know anything else to attempt to fix the problem. If anyone could help, it would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks in advance!

Hi, I have an acer 3040 which is running Vista Business. I installed Norton on it and in the process of doing so I had to update the driver for the external DVD Drive (I had Norton 360 on DVD).  I tried and tried to get the external DVD drive to work but I gave up in favour of downloading the trial from Symantec and then entering the code I had on the DVD case.  Then I tried to reboot................................. there was some text about Windows installing updates, the computer turned off and started up again and then - Nothing! Just a message on the screen about the updates not being configured correctly and reverting changes with a stark warning not to turn off the computer - end result after hours of the same message - NOTHING!  Just the same message with no other result as a reward for waiting.  Can anyone help please?

A:Vista Business frozen on boot, updates not configured, reverting changes

Sorry to hear that, do you have a Recovery Disk for Vista?  If so
insert the disk
reboot your system
as its booting up Press F10 or F8 (this is different for each computer, it should give you two options at the boot screen)
Select Boot from DVD/CD and hit enter.  (if a message pops up saying Press any key to continue do it)
This should allow your computer to boot, and give you a few options
Restore, refresh and repair
Here is a link to Microsoft support about using system recovery, what each does, and how to do it.  Click here for the link.
If your DVD drive still will not work you can use the Microsoft DVD to USB tool.  Down load it here.
 
I will follow this topic for a few days, if you have any questions please ask.  Just allow up to 24 hrs for a reply, we all here help more than one person at a time.
Good luck

A:updates not configured correctly and comp keeps restarting by itself.

nightmare with vista is this,, wait till you actually get to desktop, when you get there go to windows updates..control panel, see updates you will get big list of failed updates, u can either get rid of them all and start over or

double click desktop clock to sync pc with internet.....look at big list of updates (usually all are ticked) untick them all then tick just 1 smallest you can see and try install that one, if works (usually does) as you got 1 installed others should be easier, suggest you do them all manaully, takes time but no grief then

When you tap F8 at boot do can you get to the screen that says "Repair your Computer"? If you an access that, you should be able to do a System Restore.

Hi

Recently after my Dell computer downloaded latest window updates, and then trying to install them as normal, it says after it reboots

"Updates were not configured correctly. Reverting changes."

This it does and goes to the normal log inscreen, but this has happened more than once now. After a recent virus problem that was sorted by you guys on here i also have a message about blocked startup programs.

I dont know what i should do if anything, would be very grateful for some advice

A:Windows Update - Not configured correctly. Reverting changes

You don't want to ignore it, since it sounds like the Windows Updates are failing, and you will need the newest security patches and updates to keep from getting infected again. Just recently I had a computer I was working on with the same problem after being infected as well. I ended up doing a clean install of Vista from the Recovery Partition, and then running updates all over again until it was up to date.

Have you tried Last Best Known Configuration yet?

The "fix for this is to boot to a windows live cd or usb and rename the cat2 and software distribution folders which is great and all but it takes up to an hour for the changes to revert. Is there a hot fix out there or something that addresses this.

I have been having this problem for a couple of months now. I currently have 25 Important and 5 Optional Windows Updates downloaded onto my computer, but when I restart/shut-down, the updates fail. It usually ends with the message "Windows update failure; reverting (or reconfiguring) changes" or something like that. Then I can log in and use my computer like normal.
 
I have been ignoring the issue since everything was working until recently. I have started to notice things are slower (Internet Explorer, Chrome) and updates for Avast and other programs seem to get stopped before they can begin. For example, Avast is now telling me I have no internet connection, even though I am watching youtube videos while I try to update Avast.
 
Please let me know how to get these updates to install properly. I hope that fixing them will also resolve some of my other issues.
 
Thanks

A:60 Vista Updates wont install - errors and not configuring correctly

Vista Home Premium 32bit SP2.Well maybe not directly related but I checked my update history log the other day and there were 22 updates that failed. If you right-click on each failed update you can copy info and paste it into NotePad so you can read the info and paste the update link into your browser. e.g.Security Update for Windows Vista (KB2507618)Installation date: ‎14/‎04/‎2011 17:23Installation status: FailedError details: Code 8024200DUpdate type: ImportantA security issue has been identified that could allow an unauthenticated remote attacker to compromise your system and gain control over it. You can help protect your system by installing this update from Microsoft. After you install this update, you may have to restart your system.More information: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=212224I downloaded all the 22 failed updates and tried to install them but they all came back with 'Update does not apply to your system'

So my HP Pav a6130n (5000+ 2.6g, 6GB ram -not that it matters with home premi).

With this certain update, the PC restarts and tries to install it. I get an errorr halfway through the 2 of 3 changes, then it says "Updates not configured correctly, reverting changes".

I have been dealing with this for the last 3 months. I would resintall but my backupHD crashed and Iit's going to take me hours to back up....

Any suggestions?

No codes nor do I know how to check what update it is...

A:"An error occurred while installing updates, reverting changes."

Do you have a backup image of the Windows partition? If so I would restore from that image and turn automatic updates off. The more stuff you have booting off one physical HD the more hassle when stuff goes wrong. In the old MBR days I had a 486 with a SCSI and an EIDE drive running Dos, Windows 3.0, OS/2 and Linux with several custom kernels. First it booted to Boot Magic, then if you selected Red Hat it loaded the Grub menu.

I juggled all that with no image backup program. It is much easier if you have image backups to bail you out. There are quite a few excellent free ones. These days the main fly in the ointment is GPT and if the Linux ones that say they support GPT really do in practice when you start doing multiple OS things.

Is your HD GPT based or MBR?

Hello I am hoping someone can provide some assistance in getting rid of this BSOD problem Here is what happened I was using two driver update programs One called Driver Booster by Iobit and the other called Slimdrivers I updated various drivers including Nvidia which I had previously uninstalled but it kept popping up so I just let it go The next thing I know after that is installed and there were no more drivers left to install I ran Windows Update and it also wanted to installed Nvidia again NVidia other updates and BSOD installing updates after driver I didn't have much choice in the matter before I knew it it was installing and I had to restart my computer When the computer turned on again I used it for a little while then it started to overheat something terrible The computer was so hot I thought it was going to start on fire Almost as soon as it started overheating I got the BSOD and within a second it restarted or shut down I can't remember which The fan was running at top speed but that still wasn't enough I could have cooked an egg on the backside of this thing So the next day I started the computer up again and I uninstalled Nvidia completely using Iobit's Uninstaller to remove all traces of it in my computer But the other problem I have now is that it still runs dangerously hot within a few hours I've uploaded the BSOD after installing NVidia updates and other driver updates zip file as per the instructions There must be some kind of conflict going on Any help is greatly appreciated

A:BSOD after installing NVidia updates and other driver updates

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Dont run any disc cleanup program before you upload another zip.

After installing a recent stack if updates, I reset my computer and allowed it to fully apply them. After resetting once more, the BIOS loads but not the OS, all I get is a black screen and mashing F8 yields the same result (that is, nothing)
This is confusing and worrying to me as there have been no other significant faults.
Specs:
Intel quad core processor at 2.67 GHz
8GB SD-RAM
ATI 5870 HD grhics card
500GB HDD
Dell motherboard
What's causing this? Can it be fixed?
I don't have the install disk
Advanced boot is inaccessible, both F 5 and 8 yields no response.

A:PC won't boot after installing updates

Use the instructions below to get to the System Recovery Options.  In step 7b choose the System Restore option.  Choose a restore point prior to the downloads.  The instructions below include a download of a ISO image which can be used to create an installation disc.
 
 
A Windows 7 Repair Installation will require a installation disc.
 
If you do not have a Windows 7 installation disc you can download a free legal ISO image of Windows 7 SP1 at  Windows 7 Forums.  You will need to download the same version of Windows 7 that you have installed,  This image is hosted by the Digital River store which is an official distribution partner of Microsoft.  This is a genuine untouched image which is safe to download. 
 
 
Attention:  If you do have a Windows installation disc, skip Part A and go to Part B, Step 1b.
 
 
Part A, Steps 1a - 6a
 
The ISO image will need to be burned to a DVD in order to create a bootable installation disc.
 
1a)  To burn a ISO file to a DVD please download ImgBurn and install it.
 
2a)  Insert a blank DVD into your CD/DVD drive tray, and then close the tray.
 
3a)  Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc.
 

 
4a)  Click on the Browse for a file icon:
 

 
5a)  Locate the ISO file you want to burn, and click on the Open button.
 
6a)  Click on the blue arrow to start burning the bootable DVD.
 

 
 
Please note:  In order to boot from this DVD you may need to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the CD/DVD-ROM is the first device in the boot order, and the hdd is the second device.
 
 
Part B, Steps 1b - 10b
 
1b)  Place the installation disc in the tray of the CD/DVD drive, close the tray and restart the computer.
 
2b)  You will be prompted to press any key to start the installation, I find the space bar handy.
 
At this point the setup process will load files, this will take several minutes.
 
3b)  You will now need to choose the  Language, Time, currency format, and Keyboard or input method that you'd like to use.
 
After this is done click on Next.
 

 
4b)  Click on the Repair your computer link at the bottom-left of the Install Windows window.
 
This link will begin the Windows 7 System Recovery Options.
 

 
5b)  System Recovery Options will now search your hard drive(s) for any Windows 7 installations.  This will take several minutes.
 
No participation is required on your part at this time, wait till it has finished and the next window opens.
 

 
6b)  Choose the Windows 7 installation that you'd like to perform the Startup Repair on, then click on Next
 

 
7b)  Click on the Startup Repair link from list of recovery tools in System Recovery Options.
 

 
For a future reference, there are several other diagnostic and recovery tools available in the Windows 7 System Recovery Options including System Restore, System Image Recovery, Windows Memory Diagnostic, and Command Prompt.
 
8b)  The Startup Repair tool will now search for problems in the system files.
 
If Startup Repair finds a problem with any system files the tool may suggest a solution which you will need to confirm, or may solve the problem automatically.
 

 
9b)  Startup Repair will now attempt to repair whatever problems it found with system files.  
 
Note:  If Startup Repair did not find any problems with system files you won't see this step.
 

 
Important: Your computer may or may not restart several times during this repair process.  This is normal, you should allow it to continue until you see the Restart your computer to complete the repairs window. 
 
10b)  Click on Finish, this will restart your computer.

Hi Recently purchased a refurbished Toshiba Satellite C running windows operating system Was very pleased with it but found the message 'SecureBoot not configured correctly Build ' in a watermark in the bottom right corner of my desktop Decided to search the internet for a C50 not configured correctly - 9600 Build Boot Secure Satellite resolution and after going on troubleshooting sites found out about the BIOS Setup required however it warned that this was for advanced users who know their stuff about the technicalities of computers Whilst I am computer literate I'm not Satellite C50 - Secure Boot not configured correctly Build 9600 someone who likes to mess with the advanced options Then I stumbled across a reliable computer blog which had a detailed post on SecureBoot Link to blog and specfic post www techrepublic com blog windows-and-office deal-with-the-secureboot-isnt-configured-correctly-watermark-in-windows- I thought this would resolve my issue and I will admit it did help telling me to use windows powershell as a precaution before using the BIOS setup I was glad I did as it came back telling me that I have a non-production SecureBoot policy present on my laptop in which case I would have to ask for technical support for a system specific solution which would typically be a firmware update I did try to phone but the line was very busy and felt it might be easier to post this issue on a forum If anyone has an answer please help as I really would like to enable SecureBoot if possible as I believe computers should be set up with the best security options possible and it makes me feel comfortable knowing that it is set up securely

A:Satellite C50 - Secure Boot not configured correctly Build 9600

Someone commented the blog and posted this solution:

The registry fix to remove the watermark is as follows.
1. Start the Registry Editor with Admin rights (C:\Windows\regedit)
2. Navigate to the following path
-> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ System.
3. There, the two values " ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin "and" EnableLUA "set to" 0 ".

You can also try to enable the secure boot option in BIOS (in case its not already enabled)
To get into the BIOS, press F2 while powering ON the unit.

Additionally recommend checking this Microsoft page:

Hi folks,

I have a reoccurring problem with my laptop which perhaps you could help with.

My laptop always fails to install windows updates with the following error:
"Failure to install windows updates; reverting changes"

I took a look in my update history, as per the image below. What is interesting is that there appears to be a reoccurring problem with two particular updates which repeatedly fail:

The history of failed updates goes back way further too. KB2871690 & KB2871777 have repeatedly failed.
KB2802618 failed for while and eventually succeeded.

Can anyone give me any pointers? Microsofts Fixit didn't work, sadly.

Thanking you in advance,

Henry Cann

You can try running the trouble shooter:

Also I would look through the list and see if any of the updates are for Windows Update itself. If so, try to run those manually.

A:computer wont boot after updates

You can take out the hard drive from your desktop and send it to MS by mail. They should take it in and repair it without deleting any of your files. I haven't tried this so I don't know if they will except the file. Call MS before doing any of this.

Good Luck!

A:Cannot Complete Installing Updates, or Check for New Updates HELP

Hello dlolley and welcome to Seven Forums.

According to the Advanced SystemCare diagnose report you provided there seems to be a problem with something called Tuneup 2012 or Tuneup Utilities. I'm not sure if this is a different product from Advanced SystemCare that generated your report or if Tuneup 2012 is a part of Advanced SystemCare. In any case, these tuneup utilities can cause major damage to operating system files, the registry, etc. I would suggest uninstalling them. Windows 7 isn't like XP which required constant tweaking to work right.

Then I would run a full anti-virus scan with your installed anti-malware suite. No anti-malware product is 100% effective 100% of the time. If there was such a thing we'd all be using it. So after running that scan I would follow up with some additional scans using these free tools. Don't forget to update the data bases before running the scans.:

Malwarebytes

ESET Online Scanner

Windows Defender Offline

If the scans come back clean you could try rolling back your computer to a date/time prior to the update problems using system restore. I would also run a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

System Restore

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

When you're finished with the above you can try installing the updates again. Do not use the automatic update setting. Use the setting called Never Check For Updates (Not Recommended). That will be in Step 3 of this tutorial:

Windows Update Settings - Change

When you manually check for updates install them just a few at a time (maybe 3 - 5 at a time.) Keep track of the KB numbers. After installing the first group, restart the computer. If no problems are noted install the next group and restart. If problems do occur you'll know which group to uninstall. Install the updates from that group one at a time and reboot after each one. They'll either all install OK or you'll know which specific update is at fault. Leave that update for last. Continue installing the remaining groups rebooting after each group is installed. This is a much slower process but usually results in a clean install (providing the tuneup utilities you've used haven't caused additional issues.)

Hi there
I had to revert one of my laptops back to W7 -- need it for work. I'm still using W8 at home etc.

I did a CLEAN re- install of W7 Enterprise X-64 which INCLUDED SP1.

After the install it needed over 120 updates -- even BEFORE installing OFFICE 2010. This was a W7 install which INCLUDED SP1 so if you are reverting to an OLDER copy of W7 you'll need even more updates. !!!

Just warning people in case for one reason or another they revert back to W7 and choose to do a complete re-install -- process could take you longer than you think !!!!

Cheers
jimbo

A:Warning - reverting back to W7 might need a LOT of updates

Why don't you use something like Macrium Reflect FREE Edition to take an image, then renew the image after each set of updates.

Pay attention to the pattern of those beeping noises you're hearing when you power it up. Your motherboard is probably trying to tell you something. You'll have to go to the manufacturer's documentation to interpret the beeps.

You might also try resetting your BIOS/CMOS and/or checking/replacing the board's battery:

So the other day I installed Vista SP1 on my sister's laptop. It wen't through steps 1 and 2, then restarted. However, before it could get to step 3, it went to a black screen and with 251/60... flashing with others things. I tried restarting the computer and it said the computer couldn't boot. I tried the repair thing, but it didn't work. So I reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled vista. The computer was fine. So I decided to run windows update. It downloaded everything and installed it, then restarted. But windows wouldn't boot again. I couldn't even enter safe mode. If I tried to select anything, it would just restart the computer and go to the same screen.

Did the vista updates screw up the computer? Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Try running chkdsk on the hard drive you're installing Windows on, to see if it comes up with any erros. Could be a problem with the boot sector.

A:Failure configuring updates, reverting back changes

There are too many updates to install at one time. Install 5 at a time, if any cause problems hide them temporarily and continue on to the next batch. It is probable that the .NetFramwork are blocking some of them.

Before doing the above run the Windows Update Troubleshooter:

Windows Key + X, select Command Prompt (Admin) and type exactly sfc /scannow

Temporarily disable your Firewall

That many updates will take a very long time to revert. Let it do it's job. When things return to normal, install 5 at a time, less wear and tear on the computer and less frustration for you. If you get an update that won't install, hide it temporarily and continue on with the rest then come back to the ones that did not install.

Run the Windows Update Troubleshooter from this site before proceeding with the updates.

This is a message that could piss off the Pope.  I'm reloading computers and doing massive amounts of updates, as many as 210 at a time, and sometimes I get this message.  And it doesn't take out just the defective update, it takes out ALL the updates done in that session!
 
Is there a way to fix this problem or minimize the amount of time wasted on it?
 
I always run the Microsoft 50123 fixit before updating.  Sometimes it helps and sometimes it doesn't.
 
What causes this enormous time-waster?

A:Failure configuring Windows updates, reverting changes.....

Try running the system readiness tool before the updates. It's a kludge but you could run approx 20 updates at a time. That way the most it could take out would be 20.

Edit; I have tried spamming F4, F8, F10 buttons and none are allowing me to enter boot mode.

Since a few days, there are A LOT of computers that are experiencing a problem with Windows Update. When booting the computer, a screen with the following appears: "Failure configuring Windows Updates. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer.". For some people, the problem is fixed is 10 minutes, but in general it takes 30minutes to an hour! We have cases of people that needed to wait for more then 3 hours.
When booted, you can see that some updates are failed. Last week, we thought that it was KB2952664, but today we see that the problem has returned at computers where the update is hidden or already installed.
 
Is anybody seeing the problem and does anybody has a fix?
It literally happening to more then 15 of our clients and i've seen it on more then 30 computers.
 
Disabling Windows Update seems the only fix at the moment.

That can take 7 or 8 hours to perform the reversion
Just turn on computer, walk away and let it do its thing without interfering.

So after turning on my parent's laptop this morning they recieved this message and the laptop has been stuck on it for about 4 hours. I know how to fix it but I can't do anything on the laptop because there is no way to go past this message. I don't have a recovery CD or access to another laptop with Windows 8 to make one.

Is there anything I can do to get past this message? I've tried getting into safe mode a couple of times but nothing seems to work.

Thanks in advance

If it was trying to update too may Updates, it was bound to fail and revert changes and take a long time to revert. Give it a bit more time. Do you recall how many there were?

I've been stuck on this screen for awhile now and its quite annoying. I just got this laptop about a week ago and haven't really done much on it. I recently did put a whole bunch of pictures on it though that I really don't want to lose, that would be really terrible really. Anyway, this screen won't go away, all I did was try to update it to Windows 8.1 cause a message popped up saying to do that from the computer settings button that you find on the charm bar. I did try turning it off and on because another forum said that that worked for them. Then after restarting it came right back to this screen. But I literally can't do anything because it's stuck on this screen! Any advice?

A:Failure configuring Windows updates/ reverting changes/

I hope that you still have the backup of your pictures.

Your problem is not very clear, it looks like you are talking about two different things. There is no popup that will tell you to update to Windows 8.1 by "saying to do that by the computer settings in the charms bar", it just isn't done that way.

The best bet would be to use the recovery partition in your computer to reset to original factory conditions, see your computer manual on how to proceed.

When done install all the windows updates then go to the Windows Store to get and install the Windows 8.1 update.

I just bought new Asus Vivotab Smart Windows 8 tablet, after the very first windows update it failed to install some of the updates, and then after the reboot I am now stuck with the message "Failure configuring Windows updates, reverting changes".
It never gets any further than this, it never reverts, I have left it running for an entire day and have restarted several times.

please note that this is a tablet, so there is no keyboard so I cannot press any F keys to get into recovery mode, and no CD to boot from etc.

Hi Snake,

I recently tried updating to windows 10 but got update errors, I ran sfc /scannow and found I had corrupted files, however it couldn't fix them. I tried everything and had to resort to upgrading windows 7 again to repair all windows files. This required me to install updates again. I downloaded and installed all 201 updates then when I booted my computer this earlier it got to the stage where it said Failure configuring windows updates reverting. Does anyone know how long this is going to take I've already been waiting 30 mins and need my PC ASAP . Also is there any work around to this?

Thanks

A:Please HELP - Failure configuring Windows Updates Reverting changes

Try downloading/installing like 10 or 20 updates at a time and install the updates you can install for now.
Go to updates history and check which one is failings, uncheck it so you can minimize the loop here, then try to solve the failing update after that.

A:Windows Vista Ultimate will not boot up after installing updates

Markyajv,
Welcome to Vista Forums!

Was your gateway having any other issues before you updated it? Virus, infection of any type? Or was it just time to upgrade?

The reason that you might be getting that disc error is because that might be a recovery disc, not an installation disc.

Try inserting you vista install disc, make sure that you are booting from the DVD drive before the harddrive. Then, when you go to install, when you are looking to see what partion to install on, make sure that you erase, not format, erase the partion. This usually helps with installation errors.

Let us know,
Ben

I suggest you attempt a boot recovery/repair. Do you have the original install disc?

No need to reinstall the OS yet, but if you have the CD you can repair the files that are causing the boot loader to fail, this may be installed on the HDD by the manufacturer.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/What-are-the-system-recovery-options-in-Windows-7
The System Recovery Options menu contains several tools, such as Startup Repair, that can help you recover
Windows from a serious error. This set of tools is on your computer's hard disk and on the

And no, this is not a good enough reason to switch to mac!  ;)

A:Solved: Dual-booted Vista won't boot after installing updates

I was pretty sure there was no recovery from that mess that was created, so I went ahead and re-installed Vista. This time, I did a couple things differently. I didn't install any drivers (on the first go-through, I installed the chipset and video card drivers). Also, I went ahead and activated Windows this time (first time I didn't). Installing updates was successful this time. I installed a batch of about 41. Then, a couple more popped up, installed those. Finally, 1 more appeared and I installed that. After this, SP1 finally appeared in Windows Update. I tried installing it, and it went through all the motions. Downloaded and "installed" it in windows update, then it rebooted and did all of the configuring and installing with the 3 steps and everything. When it finally rebooted to Windows, a dialog box told me that the installation had failed. So, I downloaded the SP1 executable and tried installing it that way. Again, it went through all of the motions and seemed to be going fine, but it rebooted after Step 2 and upon reboot a black screen was displayed where it got stuck on this entry:

!! 0xc0000034 !! 30583/72488 (\registry\machine\schema\wcm://Microsoft...)Click to expand...

It just sits on this entry for hours before finally just displaying a black screen and I have to reboot. It then tells me Windows failed to start due to a hardware or software change, blah blah blah. I click Start Windows normally and it takes me to the same black screen where it eventually gets stuck on that same entry.

I've read several places online that Vista SP1 has difficulty installing on a dual-boot system, but they are all in reference to a Vista/Linux dual-boot. Does an XP/Vista dual-boot inevitably have the same issue?

Any ideas?

Hello All,

I was referred here by NeonFx from the TechGuy Security forum. He had me run a slew of anti-virus/anti-spyware diagnostics. According to NeonFx my system is currently infection free and he states the problem lies elsewhere.

He also had me run the Windows Update FixIt tool in both Default and Aggressive mode - both of which did not fix the problem. So what is the problem??

PROBLEM:

When I run the install Windows updates, the updates do not install, and I receive the following message (not verbatim, but close):

"Some updates were unable to be installed..."

This problem "came out of no where" and there has been no suspicious activity prior to it starting other than an IE7 redirect rootkit that NeonFx helped me remove (if I recall correctly an infection of agp440)...

Stumped, stumped and stumped...

I have read many posts about problems due to the fact that after the installation of MS Updates the computer began to freeze, BSOD or just work slowly. The most usual cause is the fact that the updates are downloaded and installed at the same time. Many of these updates require restarting the computer. This fact causes conflicts and problems when the updates are not installed properly. Next week a large number of updates are expected, change your update settings to notify, only. Install manually, and one at a time. We rather you come to the forum giving help rather than seeking it.

A:Windows 7 updates same for updates every time it checks for updates

See if you can System Restore to before Net Framework 4 was installed and then Hide it when it is again offered in Updates.

But be aware that some programs will need it and may not prompt you of this leaving you to guess why they are not installing or performing correctly. For this reason I always install it.

So you might want to reinstall it using its standalone installer since it may not have uninstalled correctly anyway.

A:"Reverting Changes" after large batch of Windows Updates

This problem drove me nuts.  The Windows Update database is not corrupt in this case and renaming the SoftwareDistribution folder and starting a new one won't amount to a hill of beans with this problem.   Reading through this thread, I am
amazed at the agony this issue is causing. 
The whole thing is a messed up patch from August 2012 that doesn't behave properly.  It was wrong when it came out and Microsoft apparently never did fix it correctly.  Quality control at the world's biggest software company. 

Here is the workaround.
Of that large batch of patches, first pick out KB2647753.  Put that patch in first.  Restart the computer, let it run through its update process, then do the rest.  Your Windows Updates should work fine after that.  That's it.  That's
the whole cure. 
Our friends at Lenovo are officially less than helpful on this problem, but a nice lady on the support line unofficially pointed me to this workaround last month.  But she would or could not tell me why. The official Lenovo answer is, "that question
is beyond the scope of our support and you need to call Microsoft", which of course goes nowhere fast. 

Do a google search for "KB2647753" and you'll see lots of history about this patch.  It has apparently caused lots of grief for lots of admins over the past several months and for the life of me, I don't understand why Microsoft won't fix it. 
Well, at least if anyone else goes looking for the Lenovo Windows Updates that revert, maybe they'll come across this workaround and save some grief.

What it says on the tin can.

Basically, my computer refused to update and it keeps trying to revert changes for quite a while.

So I restored my system because I had no other choice from it not booting before and it was working for a day, then when I restarted it said 'installing XX / 93 updates' so I let that run, and when It finally finished, it restarted said 'configuring windows updates XX% complete...' and then it suddenly said "Failed to configure updates. Reverting Changes." and then it looped this by restarting, trying to configure them, and then saying "Failed to configure updates. Reverting Changes." again...

I've got back into safe mode, what should I do to make it update properly again?

P.S Someone suggested toggling "Secure Boot" in the BIOS, is that worth a try?

A:"Failed to configure updates. Reverting Changes." loop!

Hi,
Secure Boot will not fix the problem but you can try it, BTW start in safe mode then run update troubelshooter, and this: http://download.microsoft.com/download/F/2/2/F22D5FDB-59CD-4275-8C95-1BE17BF70B21/WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab
