Windows 7: Win7 SP1 is stuck at reconfiguring Windows settings after reboot

Win7 SP1 is stuck at reconfiguring Windows settings after reboot

As the title describes. I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate x64. My SSD only has 15GB free space or so. SP1 has failed for me twice: First time it gave me an error code, most likely due to lack of free space (say, you need at least 15GB). On second time, it's frozen with a black screen saying "reconfiguring Windows settings" in Finnish.

I tried booting to safe mode with network, it worked just fine. I cannot open Windows Update from there though, and My Computer tells me that I have 14,7GB free space on my C:/, which is my SSD drive.

Just to be sure, I also left it reconfiguring settings overnight with no results.

Now I can't use my computer in any other than safe mode, which sucks obviously. Any fix for this to cancel the update?

Cheers and thanks in advance!

EDIT: Oh, and it's a full retail version I've bought.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

According to Microsoft, your version of Windows requires drive space of at least 20GB for installation puposes.

Windows 7 system requirements - Microsoft Windows

The reason you can run in Safe Mode is because only the minimum files and drivers to get Windows up and running. What is the total size of your SSD? If it's less than 40GB I'd suggest getting a bigger drive. (Do you have anything on the SSD other than Windows 7?)

Hey seavixen32,

thanks. I am trying to update to SP1 with Windows Update. My total SSD size should be 60GB. I've already moved pagefil.sys and hiberfil.sys to my D:/ drive which is 1TB to free up space. (Followed a tutorial here to free up space)

I think Windows Update earlier told me I'd need 15GB for the SP1 update.

I don't have any other files on my C:/ than Windows. I've installed all apps on D:/ and run CCleaner regularly.

Hope that helps!

Last thing in your "list" would be trying to update motherboard drivers, I guess. I've only updated them once a year ago to support my CPU model.

I'm currently just removing the SP1 update from appwiz, my SSD would struggle to hold it anyway. Time to get a bigger one.

I'll let you know if I come up with a fix.

Okay, I removed the Service Pack 1 from appwiz, and got this error code on boot:

Error: 0x800f0805

Now everything works fine again.

Pleased to hear it. All that's left now is to get a bigger hard drive.

Thanks for letting us know the outcome.
