Windows 7: Can not reinstall IE11 after uninstalling it

20 Nov 2015   #11

Win 7 Home Premium x64/Linux Lite 2.6 x64

Thought popped into head

Did you try installing IE11 from Clean Boot?

Windows 7 64-bit Home Edition

Well I downloaded the proper Windows Home Premium ISO file from Microsoft using the key I had. The key that the computer had was an OEM key and Microsoft would not download the ISO file so I used a key that I have never used. The repair install ran fine, but then it started to update windows and it ran into an error that it is stuck at. It says that Stage 5 of 5 Failure configuring Windows updates. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer. It reverted once and then started to upgrade again and ran into the same error message. It sits at this reverting stage for over an hour. I think it is truly broken now, but I made a system image before doing all this and a repair disk so I can recover back to where I was before the repair install. I guess I need to have the ISO file for the OEM key and I am going to see if Microsoft will provide it.

Thanks for all your help. Unless you have any other recommendation. I do not want to do a clean install because I have several programs that were downloaded off the internet in which I cannot recover.

Windows 7 64-bit Home Edition

I tried the in-place repair install again after doing a system image refresh back to the original image. This time it worked and I was able to install IE11.

Thanks for all the help. I wish I had tried the clean boot first rather than waste a product key on the iso image, but I was never going to use the Windows 7 Home Premium. I use Windows 7 Pro.

Again thanks for all the help
