Thanks so much, I have tried everything to try and get WU to download SP1 instead of always being 0% but doing this finally made it work

edit: ha nvm, now it got stuck on 31% lmao

Hello Drewmann, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I've never tried it on Windows 2008 R2, but it's core is suppose to built off of Windows 7, so it may work. If you decide to try it, be sure to create a backup before doing so.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise x64

Thanks Brink, for the quick reply and for all the help and assistance you offer everyone on this Site! Definitely appreciated.

I saw an advertisement for RegistryBooster 2011 on this Site and figured I'd play it a bit safe (hopefully) and try that first. My problems all started with a flakey/slowly dieing PowerSupply (now replaced) and I believe it corrupted my Registry during several crashes on my 2008 R2 x64 Box. Now, when I run the "System Update Readiness Tool" and look at the CheckSur.log in \CBS dir I get a ton of the following Errors;

CBS Watchlist Package Missing 0x80070002 Microsoft-...


CSI Missing Deployment Key 0x00000000 microsoft.r...

I definitely agree with you, it's the same Core System between Windows 7 x64 and 2008 R2, so if the RegistryBooster repair does not work then I'll try these Batch files after that. Either way, I'll Post back to let everyone know what worked and what didn't...

One quick question that I don't see clearly stated yet in this Forum; does method "I" (reseting Windows Update) actually cause Windows update to believe it needs to reinstall ALL updates since the original install? I know it does not uninstall any of the updates, but does it cause WU to believe it's never been updated and to subsequently want to install all updates (even over top of the same update/file versions) again? If this is the case then I believe it would solve at least half my current issues.

Thanks again for all you help!
