288 Updates after reloading win 7- all fail

I had a drive failure and had to reload win 7 pro 32 bit. Also reloaded office 2010. After everything up and running i had 288 updates pending. They install in about 2 hours and then on reboot, "update failure, reverting" message. tried several times. even installing a few manually, same failure. ????

Download the Windows Update Readiness Tool from this MS website. Scroll down to get the right version. Your Post mentions Windows 7 32 bit, so be sure to download that one. This is a large download, over 500 mb so it might take a while.

Rear through the installation procedure included in the MS website below.

No luck. Did the hot fix and the update list dropped to 188 for some reason. ran the updates and it again failed on reboot after all had been installed. system then reverted back and again i show 188 updates waiting to install.

Are you saying re-install win-7,(start over again) as the thread you point to suggests? And then following the instructions to install those stand alone updates?

I got a hard time understanding some things so can You explain "I had a drive failure and had to reload win 7 pro 32 bit." Not sure if that's a Fresh install on a new disk, or a Factory reset on a disk that's been error checked and surface scanned ?

You could try deleting everything in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download setting WUS to Never check for update and then restarting the PC. (That'll make sure WUS isn't running the simple way.) Run the standalone installers KB3020369 then KB3172605 , restart the PC and turn WUS back to checking for updates and try again.

When I do fresh installs of Win 7 SP1, I use the Simplix Pack to bring it up to date without installing superseded or telemetry related KBs. Info can be found on MyDigitalLife but You'd need to join to see the links as well as having a bittorret client to download. https://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...ibution.45005/

Thanks but that's not going to happen again. Two days of reloading everything and still not working. Have done this twice. This laptop is necessary as it has an RS-232 serial port needed to interface with equipment i service. That's the only reason i keep it as new laptops are USB only. I'll use it as is until it dies again as everything works, just not updated. It's not very old but a POS from that big seller. Win 7 was also a pain on all our office machines so we switched everything else to 10 with new equipment. Still have one laptop on XP for the same reason, RS-232 port.

Thanks again!!

Did you or did you not do the new install on a new drive?
