Windows 7: Failed Windows Update Installation on New Custom Build

10 Jan 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Failed Windows Update Installation on New Custom Build

I've recently built a PC and installed Win7 64bit on it. Everything seems to work fine, except when I try to install recently downloaded updates. I have about 169 required downloads, which are all able to be downloaded without issue. When the PC reboots to install, it sits in the installation window for maybe an hour, and then displays a message saying that the installation has failed, and that the PC is re configuring to previous settings.

Any ideas how to fix this issue? My computer specs are in my profile if needed. Thanks in advance.
