In case you lose the DVD, just COPY the DVD to an external HDD!

I hope this helps!

Don't give up because I think I prefer to use your WU method over the other one. Just prefer to go the MS way.


I'm going to run setup from my desktop.

Cittizin7,
It is hard to work with an individual on their problem when others, trying to help, cause confusion. As I state repeatedly, just because you can force an update to install, doesn't mean your computer issue is now resolved. Usually that is not the case... That is the reason for the Windows Update Posting Instructions. When you run SFC /Scannow, SFCFix.exe by Niemiro, M$'s System Update Readiness Tool, or preferably my AutoSURT SURT inhanced. The CheckSUR.log is created & the CBS.log is updated. Interpreting the log requires some time and practice, if SURT is clean, in place Upgrade will most likely work. If not, there are usually major registry corruptions, yes, fix that too, or I know those who CAN, my Win Update Instructors
RE: In Place Upgrade
If you extract the contents of the ISO or a DVD with SP1 to a folder on your desktop with 7zip you can run setup.exe from there.
Make sure you have your 25 character product key.
KeyFinder | Magical Jelly Bean is good. I usually copy it into notepad and save it on USB and to desktop.
You want the CD Key not Product ID from MJB
When you run setup.exe
follow prompts to and click Upgrade
piece of cake, I do them all the time.
If upgrade fails, then...well...that's why I'm here to help you make it work!

I've collected software in prep for the Repair. That's probably about all I will get done today. Hopefully I will be able to actually start tomorrow. thanks!

Ok Snick, it's I have downloaded the tools you listed in a previous docx link on repair install, dism++, disk cleanup low disk. etc... When you say cd key do you mean my Windows 7 License key? Or do I have to use keyfinder to grab something else? If you have time, I can make time to walk through all this now. Thanks!

My concern is how to use DISM++ to install WUs. Your instructions are general. I want to make sure I install required updates, such as servicing stacks SHA-2 etc... I assume from your instructions that there are check boxes, so I can skip stuff like all the malicious software tool updates. I also am wondering if the updates provided include "optional" that I can review.

DISM++, you install it, you run it
you click update left side of window
you click scan
it scans and lists the updates available
you pick and choose what you want
if it has a troubled history it will tell you and let you choose to install it or not.
If you have enough RAM you can install almost every update without restart.
As with Windows Update, it is not very proficient with order of updates, therefore, some might fail.
Try again.
then run
sfc /scannow
AutoSURT64
and look at the CheckSUR.log
Everything should be clean.
Check out Ninite - Install or Update Multiple Apps at Once
One click installers for many of your favorite programs & if you click on the installer again, auto update, cool, YES!
I use them all the time, and some are in my Windows Update Tools in my Footer. I like free and I don't link or recommend any crapware or crapware download sites, EVER!

That saves you disk space in Windows.old backup
saves you time copying all that junk
saves you time with in placed Upgrade, period.
Like? YES,
