I would run the Windows Updates. There are many that are very much needed. This is a lot more trouble, but it works better. Open Windows Update, in the left column click change settings, set it to download updates but let me decide what to install. Then go back to windows updates, uncheck starting from the bottom, all updates except the first 10 or 15, then install them. Once they are installed and you have rebooted, do the same thing again, installing 10-20 at a time. If you didn't use a disk with SP1, Install SP1 by itself. It is a large update but is needed for proper operation. Keep installing a few at a time until there are no more updates. If you installed your Graphics card drivers, don't install the graphics card update from WU. If you didn't install the drivers, ley WU install the GPU drivers. Make sure your OS is set up to create Small Memory Dumps Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD. Also make sure system protection is turned on and give it space to create restore points. System Restore Configuration - Enable or Disable that should get you updated. If you install a group of updates and it causes you probems, use the restore point created before they were installed. By installing in smaller groups, it is easier to determine which one is causing you problems. The net Framework is necessary and I am sure your program you use will need the net frameworks. If you need to restore because of a problem update this will tell you how. If you can boot into Windows use option 1, if you can't boot into Windows, use option 2.
System Restore

That is pretty much how I do mine. It is easier on the computer and OS doing it that way. 150 updates all at once is a big pill to swallow for the computer and OS. And yes, I know what a PITA it is, but it is necessary for the OS to have the important updates. But, be sure to install SP1 if you don't already have it. It rectifies a lot of issues. I hope this helps you out. When that is completed, let me know.

BTW< if you want to install your graphics card drivers, Download them then install, except select custom install, unselect everything you can. The only one you really need is the Display Driver. You do not need anything else.

Back from work a bit sooner today. The PC has been idle since this morning. While I was away, some updates were installed, so I have to log back in. So far, so good.

Earlier, as you suggested, I only installed the display driver as per my post #65, deselecting all other six options. Windows was also set to write minidump files.

Tanks for the incremental update installation hints. Now, logged back in, Windows Update shows me 154 important updates and 6 optional updates and the install button. I just changed to download updates with manual install. In both reinstallations (the one that hung with updates and the current one) I installed Windows 7 Professional with Service Pack 1. I have clicked on 154 important updates and am presented with a list from which I selected only a portion, as suggested, and click install button. The selected updates were installed and the PC reboots. After each manual update installation, I create a restore point. I repeat the last steps now to see, if I can install all updates...

I can just add, only try to do 20 at a time just in-case you get a BSOD

Windows Update is supposed to create a restore point before it installs. But, It will hurt nothing if you create one too. That way you will have 2 options.

Thanks Harrie, from post #71

So, with the last lot of updates, I got "Failed: 1 Update" (Code 800F0902, which can't be found when clicked for information) and the rest was successful or not necessary. I rebooted anyway, not knowing how to address that failed message, and am shown 6 important updates, which I installed also. Then, I rebooted as usual. After each batch of updates, I created a restore point myself.

It seems that Windows 7 is now properly installed and updated. Now, I will install my application software (no other software) and run it to see if the BSODs reoccur.

Brilliant, that one update that failed may be because they brought out a new version.

F... udge! I jinxed it, didn't I: BSOD on logon (after the final update) but too quick to see it (only know because of the modal window shown to me after restarting and logging in. I downloaded the SF Diagnostic Tool, installed it, ran it and attach the zipped folder here. The BSOD is summing to do with "nwifi.sys"...

before you do that please open a elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc and the /. It is a system file checker which will scan your system files and attempt to correct any missing or corrupt files. What we want are the results to say windows found no integrity violations. If it says files were found but could not be repaired, close the box, reboot and run it again, after opening the administrative command prompt. You may have to reboot and run it three times for it to repair all system files. If it can't repair them after 3 reboots, let us know.
