BSOD during windows update

Hey everyone, so yesterday I swapped my hard drive with a different from another computer. Everything went well and I reinstalled the OS (win7). Everything went through and smooth until windows updates came though. So last night I shut off my pc (it installs during shut off) and I went to bed. I woke up in the middle of the night and saw BSOD. so I shut off my pc, woke up this morning turned on my pc again and it said (please wait..) then bsod once again. When I tried safe zone, I got the message "Failed to Configure windows update, reverting changes..".

logs are attached to the thread.

Hi John :) .

The bugcheck seem to suggest a HDD hardware error, this could also mean
that the SATA data and power are not seated very well.
Start by opening up the PC and reseating the cables on both ends making sure there
aren't any obstructions most commonly dust.

Then test the drive for physical errors because trying to troubleshoot
failing hardware is not going to get us anywhere.

A question do you have all your data backed up?
Please answer before commencing with the steps below.

warning   Warning
The Following Method Should NOT Be Performed On An SSD!

Testing the HDD:

  1. Perform a Disk Check | Disk Check - Use the /r switch, Follow OPTION TWO - command prompt at startup.
  2. Then Post the results following | THIS METHOD
  3. Download SeaTools for DOS if you don't want to use a CD to test the HDD you can use YUMI – Multiboot USB Creator to create a bootable USB (instructions are found at the bottom of both pages).
  4. If SeaTools for Windows is unable to recognize your HDD visit HDDdiag and follow the instructions.
If SeaTools For DOS does not recognize the drive;
Boot into the BIOS using the *Fxkey.
Look for an entry called SATA Mode (or something similar), it should be set to IDE / AHCI.
It's probably set to AHCI which is why SeaTools doesn't recognize them in the DOS environment.
Set it to IDE then save and exit usually by pressing the F10 key.
Now boot into SeaTools and it should detect the drives.
Start the Long Test and let it run.
Upon completion don't try to boot into Windows as it will only result in a BSOD, go back into the BIOS
and change the SATA setting back to what it was in the first place.

If the HDD checks out to be in working condition check to see if Windows managed to create
any restore point despite the OS being so young.

Again follow option two;

As for the bugchecks, the one you woke up and saw is empty meaning it didn't pass the check-sum
so the it wasn't flushed to disk.
The second one is to be expected with regards to your description of the events.

BugCheck 1000007E, {ffffffffc0000006, fffff800028ac047, fffff880079cd828, fffff880079cd080}

Probably caused by : hardware_disk
Usual causes:  Insufficient disk space, Device driver, Video card, BIOS, Break point with no debugger attached, Hardware incompatibility, Faulty system service, Memory.
EXCEPTION_RECORD:  fffff880079cd828 -- (.exr 0xfffff880079cd828)
ExceptionAddress: fffff800028ac047 (nt!RtlImageNtHeaderEx+0x000000000000003f)
   ExceptionCode: c0000006 (In-page I/O error)
  ExceptionFlags: 00000000
NumberParameters: 3
   Parameter[0]: 0000000000000000
   Parameter[1]: 0000000000040000
   Parameter[2]: 00000000c0000185
Inpage operation failed at 0000000000040000, due to I/O error 00000000c0000185
By looking at the stack we can see the a start of a thread, then we're trying to verify
the boot drivers then paging them in is where it failed to do so.

Because it's a page-in operation I would look into the RAM as well.

Testing the RAM:

Tip   Tip
  • Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial "If you have errors"
  • Test the RAM with Memtest86+ for at least 7-10 passes. It may take up to 22 passes to find problems. Make sure to run it once after the system has been on for a few hours and is warm, and then also run it again when the system has been off for a few hours and is cold.
When done with the testing procedure take a picture and upload it here.

Let us know how things are going.
