Windows 8 To 8.1 - Error Code 0x80072ee2 Message And Installation Fails
Apr 29, 2014
I purchased a new laptop last week: Lenovo G500.it has Windows 8 pre-installed.at present i am still using the pre-installed McAfee Internet security programme for my AV;i have successfully done all updates(which are set to automatic)
However-despite 5 attempts to free upgrade to 8.1 i am still getting the Error Code 0x80072ee2 message and installation fails. on checking this out i am finding 'fixes' but these require installation of 'repair tool' type applications(only operable if bought etc).
Windows 8 Backup has been working fine for 12 months to an external Seagate USB hard drive.I'm now getting a "device not ready" message with error code 0x80070015 and the backup fails within 30 secs of starting. I've checked the drive for errors and there are no problems. I can read /write files to the external drive. There is ample spare space on the external drive to store the backup file. How to investigate and solve this problem.
A few hours later, Windows Defender KB2267602, definition 1.125.4350, 59.7 MB update failed to installed.
Error code 8050A003
Found something strange. I opened the View Updates history, and I found out that the update was installed successfully when it was offered the first time. A few hours late, same update was offered again, and this time it failed to install.
I've been trying to install the printer software for an HP Laserjet printer and can't get it installed. I've even had an HP tech person try to install it via remote control and he couldn't. I was told that something on my system is preventing the installation.
I ran sfc /scannow and it found corrupted files that it couldn't repair. I would be happy to send any log files that may be needed.
I have a pc that which it's cpu is 64 bit base and in the past i installed windows xp x64.now i want to install windows 8.1. At first I tried to install windows 8.1 X64 but after installation it cannot boot and the error is :
After that i installed window 8.1 X32 and it works fine ,but I want to know why i cannot install x64 .i am trying to installing and troubleshooting of that on other pc that is exactly like mine. I cheked the cpu with core info and the result is :
Coreinfo v3.21 - Dump information on system CPU and memory topology Copyright (C) 2008-2013 Mark Russinovich Sysinternals - Windows Sysinternals: Documentation, downloads and additional resources

I am trying to download the windows 8.1 on a windows 8.0 Toshiba S855D-S5120Laptop. Laptop specs 2.3 APU A10 Quad Core, 700 Giga HDD, 8 Giga RAM, and graphic ATI 2 giga memory 1200 x 800 screen . The OS is the first edition of windows 8.0 and I had widows preview 8.1 on it downloaded from the windows store. When I download the windows 8.1 from the store, I get this error code 80240031 ( I looked up the error coded and it mean invalid file) at 50% file download. I have used the windows restore function to restore the laptop to windows 8.0 and still the windows update does not work. I have tried resetting setting to default factory settings and same thing happens with the download. I have also bought the window pro 8.1 pack and the same thing with the windows 8.1 it stops at 50% and same error code comes up. I have also done the WSReset.exe and no improvement. I have all of windows updates and still nothing I do is working.
I have a problem where I turn on my pc and get error code 0xc0000225. It's and Acer desktop I bought July (2013) for a little B-Day present . But now it stopped working. I can't take it to a repair shop because
1. I'm not a fan of them
2. They tend to take like a week :I
I need it soon I'm only using my other laptop. I make like intro/outro's for people and I have one person who asked me a week ago which I feel bad about. Plus all my school work is on there and my dad also has his job documents nothing can be erased on there.
I am trying to install Windows 8 64 Bit on a HP 2530p laptop using a USB Flash Drive that I set up with DiskPart and copied OS files to - from DVD disc. I first tried to install using a DVD disc in a external DVD RW I plugged into USB port of laptop - this laptop has no built-in optical drive. I got the same error code with DVD disc that I get with USB Flash drive. I formatted HD during beginning of install so there is no OS on laptop...
Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070570.
I ran a MemTest86 and did a HD Test from BIOS and both passed.
My laptop is ASUS S46C, come with window 8 OEM 64bit. As a diligent updater, i gt 8.1 through the window store. A few days ago, i gt error code 0xc0000185 with the BSOD. I borrowed a window 8 dvd and somehow able to bypass the problem without reinstalling the window.
But now the system seems corrupted or lack of some system files as explorer and firefox always freeze. But when i tried to refresh/reset the BSOD appeared again with the error code 0xc0000185.
I have tried to created an iso file but both the normal product ID and the product key i found by Belarc Advisor does not work. I guess OEM key is no use after all. So can i know what are my options?
New to windows 8. I'm connecting my wireless HP printer office jet 4500. I was in the process of downloading and installing the software and was stopped by this message. " Another installation is already in progress. Complete that installation before completing this install." Earlier I tried to install the software for an Iomega external hard drive that had crashed. It wouldn't work so I think I took the cd out without ejecting it. To the best of my knowledge there is no other installation going on. Where would I find out if a program is being installed so I can stop it?
So when I install update 2903939 it installs fine but upon reboot it goes to 7%, reboots, reboots again as soon as the background color for the login screen shows, and then says windows was unable to update.
So far I have tried: DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth SFC /scannow Restart background intelligence service Remove extra USB devices Disable antivirus ( I don't have one except for bitdefender) Renaming distribution folder in %systemroot% to .old
SFC said something couldn't be repaired and I don't really understand the log. DISM said it repaired a store component or something. I am very lost on where to go next. I cannot seem to upload the CBS.log as a .txt I get an internal error.
I have tried updating my Windows 8.1 Pro (64-bit, upgraded from Windows 8 Pro) with the new "Update 1" (KB2919355) but it always fails with ERROR code 8007005 (or 80073712).
What I have tried do to fix:
Run WindowsUpdateDiagnostic (that e.g. removes files from C:WindowsSoftwareDistributionDownload and cleans Windows update history metadata info)DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /ScanhealthDISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /RestorehealthDISM.EXE /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup
After all of this, still the update (KB2919355) fails
There must be something that Microsoft needs to fix, there are xxxxxxxxxxxx amount of similar complains and reports out there...
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.
I have bought lenovo g50-70 just 20days back, it came with inbuilt windows 8.1, they did not give any recoverable disks with it rather they said to take back up of the OS into a usb stick but I forgot to take the backup and tried to partition the hard disk using EASEUS Partition manager then I got this error "0XC0000225"
lately Iv'e been having trouble booting my windows 7 and decided that it's time to upgrade, I bought a copy ofr windows 8 64-bit from microsoft and burned it onto a disk using the windows 7 usb/dvd downloader. I was doing all this from a 32-bit and thus applied the bootsect.exe as needed. When i boot from the disk, everything runs smoothly. I insert the required code and select custom install.
At this point, i select the partitiion and proceed. as the installation proceeeds, it does not apear if the first phase of installation does anything, even after 5 minutes it stays at 0%. after it finaly switches to the next part, I wait again for the next phase, but it only throws up a message "windows cannot install required files. make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. error code 0x8007048F"
After multiple attempts I decided to reinstall windows 7, but now I get the same error.
In Win Mail I keep getting this error code every time I try to send in receive on just one of my mail accounts. It is a .rr. account. I can send and receive, but I keeps filling my inbox with the same emails over and over. Almost like the emails haven't "cleared the server" and the server keeps sending me the same emails.
Each time I attempt to install or update through the app store I receive error message 0x80072ee4 or 080073cff. I tried:
1. Performing a clean boot. (Disabling all non-microsoft services and startup items) 2. Using the SFC /SCANNOW option to verify the integrity of windows files. 3. Clearing C:/Users/Myusername/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows Store and C:/Users/Myusername/AppData/Local/Package to clean the cache files. 4. Clearing C:/Windows/SoftwareDistribution and restarting the Windows Update service. 5. Verifying that all windows services are running. 6. Disabling NIS 2013 7. Running troubleshooter
Nothing works. Don't tell me to run the windows restore function.
1. I don't consider that to be a genuine solution. (What if the same thing happens again?) 2. I don't plan on reinstalling all 50 non-windows app store applications.
I have Windows 8.1 PRO x64bit SK (Slovakian Language Interface) + (Update 1) and Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 Android Ver. 4.3 Jelly Bean.
My problem is: Windows doesn't see my smartphone when I connect the USB cable to the phone and the computer. I dont have installed Samsung KIES , because i trying to install KIES SW yesterday, but I was wrong and kies phone absolutely not seen and not recognized.
Trying to update drivers SAMSUNG Electronics Co., Ltd. - Other hardware - SAMSUNG Mobile MTP Device and SAMSUNG Electronics Co., Ltd. - Other hardware - SAMSUNG Mobile USB Composite Device via device manager and nothing to do , i got error message this device driver was not recognized.
You'll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. If you don't have any installation media (like a disc or USB device), contact your system administrator or PC manufacture.
Press Enter to try again Press F8 for Startup Settings Press Esc for UEFI Firmware settings
When I press Enter OR F8 screen just flashes but nothing happens and I also tried to re-install windows 8, installation was successful but windows could not load but appeared that couldn't attempt the repairs.
