About a week ago, I installed a new SSD and configured it as my boot drive running Win 7 Ultimate. Everything was working fine until yesterday. I ran windows update and attempted to install 2 updates and was prompted to restart. I clicked start-->install updates and shut down. When it was shutting down, the PC began stage 1 of 2 of configuring Service Pack. After 30% completion in stage 1, the computer restarts and begins configuring service pack again, starting from 30% where it left off. It gets up to 32% and stays there for about 30-45 min and the begins "Shutting Down" for an hour or so. Once it shuts down, I power it back on. Displayed is:
Stage 1 of 2
Failure configuring Service Pack
Do not turn off your computer
I left this screen displayed for over 3 hours before performing a hard shut down and starting windows in safe mode for it to finally boot fully to windows. At that point, I receive an error stating that the Service Pack installation was not successful.
If any of you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them. I have gone through this process 3 times now. Thanks in advance.
