    In this context, "AMD64" refers to the 64-bit instruction set, not AMD the manufacturer. The CPU instruction sets are essentially identical so the term "x64" includes both manufacturers. You don't have "Windows Embedded Standard 7", so your "patch 2" is the one you want.

    In image 4 of your post #10 it appears you are trying to do an over-the-air install of the patch (download and install in one fell swoop). As a general rule, I typically recommend users "save" the download instead of "install" and then click the downloaded file to install it -- i.e., make it two steps instead of one. That gives you better control of the process, and some troubleshooting clues if the process goes awry at some point.

    Nevertheless, I don't think that's the issue in this case, but FWIW it's just a general rule of thumb I follow.

    Re: image 1 in your post #10 ... Do you not have SP1 installed? If not, that's likely the culprit. The patch is expecting to apply itself to "Windows 7 SP1" and you have "Windows 7" -- not the same thing from the patch's perspective. SP1 has been out so long that most patches assume SP1 and a more recent Servicing Stack update, and I would expect that's the case with the SHA2 patches here.

    If you need help on how to install SP1 and other recommended updates, perhaps you ought to start a new thread to get others involved.

    Hi again dg,

    To my chagrin, no, this is a fresh install of a purchased retail copy before SP1 came out. I was more concerned at getting an OS installed (for some reason, the Win 10 installer couldn't see the partition on the hard drive - see this thread), so I loaded Win 7 and everything went okay. I forgot *blushes* to update to SP1 !

    After installing Office and activating, I then tried to clone the successful (and activated) Windows installation to another (spare) HDD using the latest version of Macrium.

    That's when I got the error.

    I then tried an earlier version (7.1.3169) and was able to clone the installation successfully.

    Now to try u/grading to Windows 10 (since I have just purchased a license). I have several PCs upgraded to Windows 10 and I don't know (or can't remember more like) which Win 7 key was in use with which machine - so easier to buy a new license then everything would be legit.

    Thanks for you help, patience & understanding. I really appreciate the time and effort spent trying to help me understand/resolve the issue.

    Cheers
