Windows 7 Home Premium x64

By the way, when I yesterday tried to manually download the 8 pending security updates on my laptop from Microsoft Download Center, 2 were already installed and the rest not applicable for my computer.

Also worth mentioning: when I a few weeks ago wanted to restore to a time prior to Win10 install (the only available was a back-up restore point back in 2013 on my external hard-drive), something went wrong and my computer did not boot. I ran a repair disk copied from another computer (as I didn't know which DELL disc to use-none of them says Repair Disk) to fix it. Obviously it didn't help the issue with win update...

Hi Albion,
That other comp CD reinstall wouldn't have helped matters if it wasn't a Dell, but no good crying over spilt milk.

Your best bet is a re-install from your external media, obviously it wont be upto date but it will be right.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Hi Torchwood,

The System Image Recovery did not work.

Tried again to restore to an earlier time before the Win 10 installation (Back-Up Restore Point back in 2013 on an external hard-drive).

Failed to boot.

Ran Dell Drivers & Utilities Disc for diagnostic tests, with external hard-drive still connected- ‘Error code 4400:011A. SCSI_1.000_DISK_GENERIC-_MULTICARD – Target not ready’.

Failed to boot.

Ran Win 7 Repair disc (copy from another Win 7 computer)-‘Root cause found: Unspecified changes to system configuration might have caused the problem’.

Booted successfully. Computer restored to the 2013 Restore Point.

Checked for updates.

All updates installed successfully.

Case closed.

Thank you for your help!
