Windows 7: Can't search new updates on windows 7 ultimate x64 After update....

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Can't search new updates on windows 7 ultimate x64 After update....


I tried several times to install windows 7 x64 but every time I stay locked .... I can only come to the first update of service pack 1.

Using a windows 7 cd containing the service pack already one, once the installation is complete I can't check for updates. if I install a version without the first service pack, i can install the updates, but when I install the service pack 1 I no longer find updates....

Windows is in loop on "Searching updates...."

(can't find help on google, i tried all the hotfixes that I found.)

How long have you waited for that first monster update search? There are several threads about the long first monster update search after fresh install takes around 16 hours.
