Windows 7: KB3033929 Fails/Boot Loops with Error 80004005

KB3033929 Fails/Boot Loops with Error 80004005

I reported this in the post regarding the March 10 patchfest, but thought it should get its own thread until resolved. The patch will not apply on my system and requires several lengthy reboots to unwind itself and finally fails to patch. During the update process I get a "Reverting Changes" message and "Preparing to retry", but ultimately, the patch fails. On Microsoft's Technet site, some have reported that this is due to using a custom bootloader on a multi-boot machine, which is what I have, though others seem to be having problems even on single OS systems. Some have worked around the problem by disabling their bootloader (e.g., grub2), booting into Win7, applying the patch successfully, then re-enabling their bootloader for multi-boot. This is a bit more than I'm willing to do at the moment, so hoping Microsoft will fix this patch so it will apply on dual/multi-boot machines.

Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Please also post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file
