Windows 7: Failure configuring windows updates frozen

Failure configuring windows updates frozen

My install on Win7 64x SP1 was going fine until the windows update screen. I told it not to set up windows update, but it still wanted to do some setup. It restarted, and now always restarts to a screen saying 'Failure configuring windows updates, reverting Changes', and stays there permanently. How can I bypass this screen?
I already have a Windows installation on another HDD, this one was to be on a partition on a 2nd disk

Reboot to the Repair Environment, and use the option for System Restore from there.


reboot to the Repair Environment - as soon as the machine restarts, start tapping F8 - this should bring up the Advanced Boot Menu, at the top of which should be the option 'Repair my Computer'
Pick that

Very possible that the download crc failed. I never like the idea of d/ling things during an install. You can do it once the system is up and running.
