Windows 7: 7 Home Premium in-place setup cancels itself, cannot sfc nor wupdate

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
 
 

I tried to make a list beforehand of all the things I'd lose. I lost some recent passwords that the previous browser had cached but which were not included in an export. I lost router and DNS settings that I forgot to write down but which were easily recoverable. I lost many, many pieces of shareware - text-editor/IDE's, SSH clients. All of which, I guess, were expendable.

Performance was never much of a problem, and I'm not as overwhelmed as others appear to think I ought to be, about any improvements to it.

What exactly is going to happen in the likely event that I'm unable to find the sticker?

It was absolutely never affixed to my hardware. There are little stickers on the inside beneath the keyboard for intel CORE™i5 and Windows®7 but nothing unit-specific. Sorry if that's hard to believe, but the unbroken plainness of the "Zenbook" design is evidently an intended part of its charm.

This link says Zenbook COA sticker is on the power brick: http://www.anandtech.com/show/4984/a...-ux21-teardown



It's required by MS to have the COA sticker attached to any PC that comes with pre-installed Win7 so that users have the ability to change to the Product Key in MS Activation servers without being reliant on the factory SLP mass-activation it comes with. So they would surely know where to find the sticker if you'll contact Tech Support.

What router and DNS settings are needed during Clean Reinstall? I've not heard of any. Is this specific to the way you set up your router, as normally Win7 connects to modem or router quite easily when driver is loaded.

No, my network is needed only before and after Clean Reinstalls. Although I was unable to get the non-steamlined hotfixes until after I restored the network. That was easy for me. Router login credentials are particularly key. I also don't have a removable or observable NIC. So those are a couple things worth putting on a save-list for me, next time.

But I really lost very little that I can't rebuild or replace, that I've yet noticed.

Windows and Windows Update keep telling me they have a new update for my network adapter but three tries at installing it cause my network to break. More critically, I have a couple other new surprises related to my Clean Reinstall.

First, revalidation does appear to have been crucial to success at running SFC! Although the volume had not been marked dirty, there does seem to be a secret Microsoft F.U. Bit that was set in order to present the inexplicable Windows Resource Protection message on each prior attempt to run it.

The other critical surprise: My brandspanking new Clean Reinstall notwithstanding, an sfc /verifyonly returns:
Code:
Beginning system scan.  This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection found integrity violations. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
So, first, is there anything that I can/should try before running an sfc /scannow? And, how could this happen (almost) immediately after a Clean Reinstall? Windows Update appears to have broken my machine yet again by attempting to overwrite my good network adapter driver with a corrupt one.

If the Update won't work roll it back in Device Manager or Installed Updates, then hide it in Windows Updates.

See if there's a driver update manually on the PC or Device's Support Downloads webpage.

It's not really possible to find SFC violations on a brand new install unless the installer ISO was obtained from a questionable source, or something was installed or tweaked after reinstall.

Where did the ISO come from that you slipstreamed? If there's any question I'd do it over with the latest ISO from Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. Since you strangely had 64 updates after slipstreaming using SIW2's tool, I'd make sure that you extract and load into Windows Downloader windows-7-x64-x86-UpdateLists.zip
This time I'd wipe the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command

Sorry I should have said that I had already rolled it back, thus allowing me to make the previous post.


I USED THE CD YOU PEOPLE TOLD ME TO MAKE.


If the SFC complaint means that something is "corrupt" it was due to the one out of 70+ updates I did subsequently - that Windows Update did - which failed.

I'm done for the day; will check back tomorrow.

Thanks.

Before going to bed I decided to let sfc run with /scannow instead of /verifyonly. It found integrity errors (again, most likely the oem's non-whql nic driver), and displayed a message indicating those errors would be fixed on reboot.

I did another reboot; I did another scannow.
Code:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

C:\Windows\system32>sfc /scannow

Beginning system scan.  This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

C:\Windows\system32>

Sounds good.

Take your time installing programs to monitor performance between each. Watch for more Updates and make sure all Important and Optional are done, after enabling Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware (Step 3)

Stick with the tools and methods in Clean Reinstall and you'll keep a perfect install.

Let us know how it pans out.

After it's set up at the point where you feel you have the best performance, save a Win7 backup image so you never have to reinstall again.
