Here it is.

I didn't knew this SSD migration would cause me so much trouble...

I have to go, I'll check tomorrow.

There's more mentions of that KB afterwards - but if I'm reading it right, it's installed OK now?

If not - try this

1. Open Regedit
2. Go to HKYE_LOCAL_MACHINE\Components
3. right-click on the entry in the right pane for 'PendingRequired' and select Delete
(note - not the data, but the entry in the left column in the pane)
4. Close Regedit and reboot

Then try Windows Update again

OK - slight mod to the instructions....


1. Open an Elevated Command Prompt
At the prompt, run the following command...

REG LOAD HKLM\COMPONENTS C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS

2. Open Regedit
3. Go to HKYE_LOCAL_MACHINE\Components
4. right-click on the entry in the right pane for 'PendingRequired' and select Delete
(note - not the data, but the entry in the left column in the pane)
5. Close Regedit and reboot

Then try Windows Update again

Finally! Every update has been made successfully, apart from this one which isn't compulsory : http://i.imgur.com/AQhJCtk.png

I spoke too early, this one too fails : http://i.imgur.com/tdFQ5Hr.png

Do another Check for Updates - I suspect one may disappear.

If they fail to install, what error message do you get from each?

I checked for update but no changes.
I've got the 80073701 error code and the updates fails almost directly after starting them

KB2830477, KB2952664...

Try downloading and installing the first from the standalone...
Download Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2830477) from Official Microsoft Download Center

The second is definitely not needed, unless you plan on upgrading to Windows 8.x - you can simply hide it.

So I hide the important one? The installation of the other one suceeded (I still have to restart the PC)


EDIT. alright... I just rebooted my computer but the KB2830477 is still there. I checked for updates.
