Windows 7: Windows 7 x64 SP1 Update failure

Hmm, will it be too much if I ask how to actually use the System Repair Disc? All I did now was boot the system with the disc inserted, but it all ended up the same as before. I guess there's some trick to it, then.

I tried to follow these steps, too:
How to Use a System Repair Disc to Restore Windows 7 - For Dummies

It says:
For just a few seconds, the screen displays Press any key to boot from CD or DVD. Press any key. Click Next.

But couldn't notice such a message displayed.

Thanks a lot for all the help so far,
Maciek

Well, that's exactly what I do. Hitting random key madly. I geve it two more tries now hitting g and d and it just starts normally.

Eh, problems even here...

I'll see if I may get the installation disc at the moment. But this one should've worked, anyway.

Have you checked that your BIOS is set to read the DVD before the Hard Drive?

Hmm, I've just checked it in BIOS settings. All: First, Second and Third Boot Device (or something like that) are set to CDROM. No other parameters seemed suiting for the situation.

Sorry for the delays again, it's a busy time for me.

This is very confusing.
From your post #25

Quote:
First, Second and Third Boot Device (or something like that) are set to CDROM.
Your DVD (CDROM) player can only be set to (1) boot order at (1) time.

If it is set to boot first it can not be set to boot second and third at the same time.
What I would do is set the DVD player to first boot and the hard drive to second boot.

What this does.
When you boot your computer it will look for a bootable CD/DVD first. If it finds one it will boot from it. If it doesn't find one it will try the second option; the Hard drive.

Well, what I'm trying now is simply boot with the System Repair Disc. With it being in the drive, nothing really happens.

I changed it now in the Advanced Bios settings: First Boot Device is now CDROM, the other two are Hard Drive. Still, it doesn't seem to notice the disc.

If it doesn't notice the disk, then either the drive isn't working properly, or the disk isn't properly bootable.
You did burn the ISO, rather than just copy/paste it?

Where did you get the disc?
Did you burn the disc yourself?
Did you used a download ISO file?
If so from where?
If you downloaded a ISO.zip file where on your computer did you download it to. Did you unzip it?
I download to my Desktop.

No copying, just followed the instructions here:
System Repair Disc - Create
The drive has always worked properly. I've only one drive, so no chance to try the other.

As above, I just accessed the tool that Windows offers (Computer->Properties->Create a system repair disc). No downloading, no .iso files were needed as far as I remember.

EDIT The disc is displayed in the Computer folder as "Windows 7 64-bit Repair Disc". Seems alright, but maybe I should try another method of burning the disc.
Unfortunately, some guides in the Internet say I should be able to see a screen "do you want to boot from CD" or something like that. I don't.
