I am having somewhat of an odd problem. I have searched everywhere but I have been unable to find anyone having the same problems as I. I am running 64bit windows 7.
I have been trying to get the computer to updates, though when I reboot it fails to configure the updates, gets to 35% and always fails with error code 80071AB0. After searching Microsoft Support, some people recommended running sfc.exe to scan for corrupted files, then to fix them and reboot. Well, I found no corrupted files on the drive hence there was nothing to fix. Also, I have tried to download the Microsoft Fix-It and run it, though that is to no avail as well. I have attempted to preform a clean boot with my anti-virus disabled to rule out a software problem and that also didn't change anything.
When I open Windows Updates and attempt to install them, I get an 80070643 error.
I also get these same errors when trying to install the updates from a downloaded file.
I have been a Linux guy all my life and am relatively new to the way windows works, so any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
P.S. - When I first acquired the computer, I installed the OS on the SSD, but then edited the registry to house my program files and user data on a separate drive. Could this have something to do with the conflicting errors with windows update?
