Updates :: Windows 8 Install Still Shows Windows 7 As Option

Apr 16, 2014

I can not get rid of old windows 7 option when I start up my laptop - it gives win 7 and win 8 as options like there are 2 os which there is not. If I try to click on win 7 option nothing happens. I have reinstalled many times and can not get rid of it. I have an ASUSF5RL

I don't know if it is connected but when I try to shut down it takes 5-30 mins for the computer to click off. How do I get rid of this?

Updates :: No Boot After Updates - System Restore Only Option Available?

Aug 19, 2013

I have had to system restore 3 or 4 times in the last week or so as Windows 8 refuses to boot after installing the latest updates discovered from the last couple of weeks (though some are from December 2012)

I have unchecked all the current updates and have decided against installing them as they seem to be preventing Windows from booting.

Pattern - "Restart to install updates"

Restart locks on the start screen - Restart again and locks again (repeat this process 3x)

"Windows is automatically repairing..." - Fails

"Windows must restore settings to a previous time..." - Usually succeeds, sometimes fails.

Then I can get back into Windows.

As soon as I install these updates, I won't get back into Windows until I system restore since before the updates and my build won't remain stable unless I prevent Windows from installing these updates.What could be going on?

They are quite big updates (totalling ~740mb and have all been discovered in the last week or so though some date back to late last year)

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 Apps Won't Start - Tile Option Shows Status Nicely

Oct 28, 2013

I have a Windows 8.1 and a problem with my apps. When I try to open weather, finance and other apps, They show their start-up screen and in a couple of seconds they're gone - I am brought to my metro screen... Tried to reinstall the apps, but hadn't got any luck...

But wait, it get interesting: Even though the weather app crashes, I have a live tile option on for that app, and it shows me weather nicely.

Here are some of the errors from Event viewer:

Failure to load the application settings for package Microsoft.BingMaps_8wekyb3d8bbwe. Error Code: 32

Failure to load the application settings for package microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_8wekyb3d8bbwe. Error Code: 32

Updates :: Failure Configuring Windows Updates From Clean Install

May 24, 2014

After a BSOD and utter failure to boot (presumably a critical OS file damaged) I ran the recovery tools for a total factory reset.

Connected to the internet and worked for an hour or two, then tried a reboot. Windows update had 104 updates to process. It did them, then "Failure configuring Windows updates. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer"

This should take half an hour. After 90 minutes it has rebooted 5 or 6 times. It keeps reverting to the same "Failure configuring Windows updates. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer" message. Looks like it might want to reboot through each of those 104 updates.

I'm going to repeat the factory reset and the FIRST thing I will do is disable updates. I'm going to see how long I can work without any updates.

Updates :: Unable To Install Windows Updates Or MSI Files

Feb 16, 2014

So some background. I had issues with being able to install ANYTHING from an MSI file. Then I wasn't able to install any updates from Windows Update. I then reinstalled Windows, and am now facing the same issue after a few days. I would rather not reinstall yet again.

I tried doing System Restore, but it just hangs. Windows Installer hangs on "preparing to install".

Setup Installation :: Add Boot Option After Windows 8 Install?

Jan 15, 2013

I've seen all the tips on setting up a dual boot while installing Win 8 with an existing win 7 installation but I can't find any way to add a boot option AFTER installing win 8.I have an image of win 7 that I want to put on another hard drive and then be able to dual boot either 8 or 7.

I tried using easybcd and it appeared to save the entry but it wasn't there when I booted up.

On a side note I also can't seem to change the timeout value before it boots. It always reverts to 30 seconds. I tried msconfig with the same results.

I do have an added boot menu for a recovery via Farstone recovery. It added it to the win 8 boot menu so it must be possible to add the win 7 somehow.

Updates :: Cannot Install Updates - Error 8007371B And 80073712

Jan 17, 2014

I'm constantly trying to update my Windows 8 but I'm unable to do so, because everytime I try to update it, it fails to install because of an errors. To be specific, its two updates with different errors 8007371B and 80073712.

Those two updates are the only one showing up. Their id is KB2856373 (Update for Windows 8 on x64 CPU's) and KB2781197 (Security update for Windows 8 on x64 CPU's).

I have already tried sfc, chkdisk, Windows update diagnostics from Microsoft website, resetting the services, Windows build-in tool to fix Windows update errors and nothing worked.

Updates :: Install Windows 8.1 Enterprise More Than Once On Same PC?

Aug 5, 2014

I want to get started with WP8/8.1 dev and I decided to dual boot on my work laptop (Mac Book).

The problem is I don't want to use my Dreamspark (OEM as far as I know) license on my work PC since it's an academic license if I'm not mistaking and this might cause some problems at work, and I also don't want to activate it on my 6 years old PC since I have some projects still going on and I'm planning on upgrading sometime next year.

So my question(s) is simple: Can I install the 90 days trial of Windows 8.1 Enterprise and reinstall again, on same PC after the trial is over?

Updates :: Cannot Install NET Framework 3.5 SP1 On Windows 8.1

Aug 23, 2014

I need to install the .Net framework 3.5 sp1 on Windows 8.1 for Autodesk 3ds Max for work. I initially noticed this in the Max installer...just quit installing and says I need to connect to the internet. Of course I am connected just fine.

Tried Windows update, gave me this error: 0x800F0906

Tried enabling .net 3.5 from the features menu, but got the same Windows Update "connect to the internet" error.

I tried using command prompt to do this command: Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /Source:E:sourcessxs /LimitAccess

That did not work, even with the installation media inserted, CMD gave me error 0x800f081f saying it could not locate the files on the Windows 8 installation disc (YES I DID INSERT THE CORRECT DRIVE LETTER)

I even copied the sxs folder directly to my C directory, directed the command to the folder itself and it still gave me the same error. The only thing I can think of to actually make that command work is if I had a Windows 8.1 disc instead of 8.

I've tried downloading multiple "offline" installers for it, but they all do the Windows Update crap that got me into this in the first place.

Updates :: Windows Store Not Finding 8.1 Install

Oct 17, 2013

I'm running Windows 8 at the moment and I am trying to get 8.1 installed.

I go into the Windows Store......and I get no option at all to download and install 8.1. Windows updates are on, not sure if that even matters though. Windows Store is just not giving me any option to install it, or even tell me that its available to download.

Now, I'm in the UK, but as I understood it, Microsoft's release of 8.1 was global. I have also done several reboots of the PC, no change.

Windows 8.1 - Can't Install Updates After System Reset

Jun 22, 2014

I was running windows 8.1 back in January and it crashed during an update. After that, the system wouldn't start and just kept on going round in circles trying to fix itself. (See thread 'Solved: Can't fix windows 8.1, PC locked. Last post 28-2-2014.)

Under diagnostic tests at a local PC repair shop, a hard drive failure seemed to be the problem. Since it was under warranty, it went back to PC World who sent it back to Lenovo. I got it back in March but all they did was a system reset, putting it back on windows 8.

Everything is now working fine apart from one fact. It won't update. I just get the 'failure configuring updates, reverting changes' message. My metro tiles stopped working yesterday as well. I presume this is also an update issue. Under investigation it appears updates have never been installed. I came across a message saying the place where windows stores updates has been moved. How do I repair this, since the windows update troubleshooter doesn't work? I am fairly conversant in DOS, but it's been a while.

I'm using a Lenovo Ideacentre B340 running windows 8 with the following spec:

Intel Pentium CPU G645 @ 2.90GHz
Lenovo Mahobay motherboard
440GB Hard Drive

I have enabled safemode startup on the F8 key and everything of importance is backed up.

Updates :: Windows Update Gives Error When It Tries To Install Drivers

Jun 23, 2014

When I search for updates with windows update it finds the drivers I want but it gives me an error message whenever I try to install them.

I already tried downloading the latest windows update (when I install it, it says the update was succesful and asks me to restart, but when I search again after restarting the update shows up again and lets me install it again).

I also tried deleting and renaming my software distribution folder and using the windows troubleshooting program.

Overall I'm not really too fussed about most of the things it's trying to install apart from the drivers for the wireless reciever for my xbox controller as it won't work without them. When I try to install the driver files through device manager it gives me this error message

my main reason for mentioning the windows update problem is that I assume the problems are linked as the wireless reciever works perfectly on my laptop. Up to about a week ago it also worked perfectly on this computer using the same usb port that it uses now.

As you can see, on the 19th, it suddenly began to say "NULL DRIVER". I checked my system restore and it tells me that I installed a windows update on that day just before it suddenly stopped working. I tried reverting back to this restore point (before the update) and nothing had changed, the device still would not work.

Updates :: Windows 8 Fails To Install EVERY Update - Error 0x800f0922

Aug 18, 2014

So I had to do a System Repair thing where Windows would repair itself and removing all my apps but keep my documents, photos and music etc. So I was reinstalling every program again and also wanted to install the updates.

But I ran into 0x800f0922 error code and I couldnt install them. (I run Windows 8.1 Pro) I was trying to install Adobe Photoshop but couldnt continue cuz .NET framework 3.5 was required. But after trying to manually download + install I got the same error (0x800f0922). I've tried almost every cmd command but couldnt fix it.

I just reinstalled Windows and tried installing the updates again, but same thing. I cannot install any update at all.

Maintenance :: Troubleshoot Option Under Advanced Startup Option Missing

Oct 23, 2013

The Troubleshoot icon that should be under the 'Advanced Startup' Option is missing. System is a new Dell Latitude 10 ST2 Tablet running Windows 8. Have access to 9 other identical tablets, all configured the same and they all have the Troubleshoot Option. Have tried multiple methods of getting to "Advanced Startup" display (including Safe mode, 'shutdown /r /o', etc.), but all result in only having the 'Continue', 'Use a Device', and 'Turn Off your PC' options - No Troubleshoot. Other than missing this icon, system is working fine. Shy of wiping the disk and starting over.

How To Skip Checking For Updates During Win 8.1 Install

When I'm installing Win 8.1 Pro, it starts automatically "Checking for Updates" near the end of install process. That is before getting to Windows Start screen/Desktop.

I'm using a autounattend.xml file, but didn't find a way to skip "Checking for Updates" yet. It is the only answer I could not automate. Trying to do that without user intervention. Just by means of autounattend.xml file.

Cannot Install Updates / The Component Store Has Been Corrupted

Sep 27, 2014

I have been unable to instal updates for a while but unfortunately I put off looking into it and it has been far too long that I dont have a restore point to try.

The computer works completely fine otherwise so I would prefer to find a solution that doesn't involve reinstalling windows.

I think the problem is that the component store has been corrupted, I have tried Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth from Admin command prompt but it says Error 14098 The component store has been corrupted.

I will attach the dism.log

My spec if needed; AMD FX-8320, Radeon R9 270X 2GB , 16GB DDR3, ASRock 970 Extreme3, Windows 8.1
