Windows 7: Vista fails to log off, install updates.

Yes, and wipe the HD again.

There is a WD Lifeguard bootable scan on Hiren’s BootCD 15.1 as well as many other useful tools to test your hardware.

Scanned with WD's tool:

Extended Scan: No errors found (error/status code: 0000)
Full Media Scan: No errors found (error/status code: 0000)

I'm going to scan the Hitachi drive with Hitachi's DFT (Drive Fitness Test), if it also gives me no errors, I'm going to return the WD Drive.

Quick test: Corrupted sector. Ran repair, operation completed successfully. (Disposition Code = 0x00)
Advanced test: Operation completed successfully (Disposition Code = 0x00)

I'm going to try a clean boot with the original Hitachi hard drive.

Clean reboot with the original Hitachi hard drive... and it shuts down! Now I'm afraid to install any drivers.

I'll make a restore point now, and then reboot after every driver.


Ralink 802.11n Wireless LAN Card install, rebooted ok.
02Micro Integrated MMC/SD controller installed, rebooted ok.
ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics installed (though Windows Update), rebooted ok.
Marvell Yukon 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller installed (though Windows Update), rebooted OK!


While installing the SD controller, I got a Windows Update message that new updates are available, so that's working now.

Did you start existing WIN7 on the Hitachi, or are you saying you Clean Reinstalled?

If you haven't Clean Reinstalled then you can given enough time between every step, driver, program and group of Updates to see when the problem arises, then System REstore to narrow it down to the actual bad apple.

However if it happens right off the bat before anything is added it's still likely a hardware issue. I keep wondering about stress testing the CPU - Stress Test with Prime95 - Windows 7 Forums.

Clean reinstall, not reboot. As soon as it booted for the first time after the installer, I shut it down. It shut down immediately. If I would have done that with the Western Digital hard drive it would have froze, even with no drivers installed.

(I'm keeping my driver progress in the previous post.)

Good progress. Keep us posted.

It may well have been the HD but you'll do best to continue testing after each install/group with Restore Point to roll it back if necessary.

Okay, Windows Update works. All drivers installed successfully (two from Windows Update!). Restarts now without any hesitation. I now have 122 updates: Which ones are safe to install? (attached photos)

edit: Installed iTunes, works perfectly.

You need all of those especially the drivers at end which are currently not ticked.

I think I'd install the drivers first alone and then test it for awhile.

Then install the Updates in small groups and test after each. Same with Programs.

Or if you never had this problem as the result of Updates before, then you could install them all at once and rely on the REstore Point or even a Win7 backup image if problems arise. It's up to you to decide.

I'm pretty confident that the system is fixed. Either I had a bad restore disk, or some incompatibility with the Western Digital HDD.

I'm going to install the drivers first, test for a few, then install the rest at once. This looks like it'll take a while, but I'll post the result when it's done.
