Update Hangs, BIOS Changes, Date & Time changes

Hello all! Thanks in Advance to all who replies.

So to start this off I have done alot of OS switching in the years ive owned this computer ( purchased sometime late 2011 ) I went from the original OS Windows 7 Home Prem SP1 x64 to many different linux distro and windows installs.

I decided I wanted to restore the computer back to its factory state. I had lost the restore disks years ago so I ordered a new copy off the Acer website. Once they came in the mail I booted up the disk and everything went smoothly. Until I restarted the computer expecting to boot into my fresh Windows install all I got was a black screen and/or a Constant reboot loop after getting to the Windows loading logo. After a little research I was able to figure out the BIOS was set to RAID and it only would boot up on AHCI. After selecting AHCI I was able to boot into my new install and set everything up.

After I login for the first time I do a full Windows Update and just select everything available to update.
after everything is done I click the restart button and It hungup on the installs before restarting.

So I figured ok, no big deal ill do a hard shutdown and reboot and try again. Same exact outcome.. So I search a little and find a Windows fix for update issues so I downloaded it and run it. Everything updates properly and Im able to restart without the hangups. BUT the BIOS has put itself back into RAID so I change that once again and boot up windows.

Now that all the updates seemed to have installed correctly I have installed all my must have programs & games. But now everytime I go to restart the computer is says that I have 1 out of 1 update installing and it just hang up then goes to a black screen. The only way to get out of this is to hard shutdown. Now everytime I turn the computer on I have to go into BIOS and change RAID to AHCI then once I get into windows I have to correct my date & time settings because there WAYY OFF.

So what im looking to do here is, get all of my updates installed correctly, stop my computer from chaning bios settings & date & time settings

I have attached a text file containing all of my updates. My computers specs are also set up in my profile.

My guess is that the MB needs a new RTC battery. That is causing the MB to forget its settings. Lots of Win7 update problems lately. If the offending update is not necessary, you could Hide it and move on. Also, the date problem could mess up updating.

Pleasefollow the WindowsUpdate Posting Instructions and postthe requested data



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



Pleasealso post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file
