Windows 7: Windows 7 Pro 64 bit repair install fails

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit repair install fails

After having tried for a long time to fix a number of problems (see Not Running Genuine Windows Error 0x8004fe21 for the details), I've tried to do a repair install.
This fails however during the "compatibility check" with the following error message:
"The following issues are preventing Windows from upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, complete each task, and then restart the upgrade to continue.
An error prevented a required compliance check from completing. Cancel the installation and try upgrading again."

Does anyone understand what this error message means and how to solve the problem?

I do not want to do a clean install. I want to do a repair install, without having to reinstall all apps and their configs.

Hi,

Mmm OK. Could you try something for me please?

Can you run sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt, and then post the output here in your next reply?

The log file (CBS_26.5.12.log) is on my Skydrive: https://skydrive.live.com/#cid=6C118079344AE475&id=6C118079344AE475!116

Hi,

I've yet to meet someone that can interpret the CBS log file. Did sfc report, in the command window, that it could not repair any integrity violations?

If so, could you run it an additional 2 times, rebooting between each sfc /scannow, and then report back?

Regards,
