Windows 7: Servicing Stack 2019-09 kb4516655 & some updates fail clean install.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
 
 

Solution:


I had to do a Repair Install Repair Install

because there was a problem (corruption) with Windows Update after I clean installed windows 7 and attempted to install

Rollups (aka SP2 and other updates) in a way that is not current and was likely erroneous in other ways too.

Used Simplix post Repair to install Security updates only or mostly? then installed individual ones.

Repair Install Compatibility Error:You can't upgrade 64-bit Windows...

I had a link to a page here at sevenforums something like, prefered method of clean install ,but I can't find it - search the forum. Ask questions.



As for the repair install (aka in-place upgrade, NOT startup repair), make sure you have your original Setup disc or USB drive or ISO download, NOT just a recovery Disc - Though this is royally confusing issue especially if you are working with upgrades and downgrades, so probably best to confirm with the forum before proceeding! And if necessary redownload appropriate version of Windows from MS.


Easy to say, but make sure you know about topics, such as how to make bootable media etc... IMGBurn is great and so is Rufus.



Also, hide any sharp objects during this process


That's it for me folks!
