Windows 7 failed to install SP1, error code 800736CC

Q: Windows 7 failed to install SP1, error code 800736CC

Hi,

I recently reinstalled windows 7 on my computer after experiencing many crashes and update failures. Windows update succesfully installed all the other updates except for service pack 1. I've tried Microsoft fixit tool and Windows system update readiness tool. I've also tried clean boot, disk check, SFC... all without success.
I really don't wish to reinstall windows again for the 100th time
Appreciate your help.

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 failed to install SP1, error code 800736CC

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, I recently did a fresh reinstall of Retail Windows 7 64bit Home Premium and reinstalled all the drivers that came on my Motherboard CD. I did not install the AsusSuite software. I only installed the VGA drivers for Intel HD 4000, I have not put in my GPU yet. I have input the rest of my system details into my user profile.

I have been having issues with windows update. After multiple restarts the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 for x64-based Systems (KB976932) won't install. I tried running "Windows6.1-KB947821-v22-x64.msu" which installed correctly but Service Pack 1 will still not install. I get error Code 800736CC. I tried deleting the SoftwareDistribution folder but that didn't help.

I'd appreciate any help.

Hello. I created an account just to enquire about this problem. It's been bugging me for the past few days and spoiling my Christmas mood

Software problems forced a repair installation to my computer, and I've been unable to reinstall SP1 since. Ended up doing a clean install. Now SP1 remains the only update that will not install. (Everything else installs just fine.)

I've tried to install SP1 using both Windows Update as well as a direct download from the Microsoft website, but both are unsuccessful, even with a clean boot.

Hello, and welcome to the Seven Forums!

Thanks for providing such a detailed first post. That saves us a lot of work

This first step is not a fix, just some further diagnosis, because you have a serious corruption there. Basically, you have what appears at first glance to be a Servicing Stack corruption. The Servicing Stack is right at the very, very heart of Windows Update, and all servicing operations (eg Windows Update and the Windows Installer at the very top rely on it to perform the core servicing, using the Component Servicing Infrastructure (CSI) at the bottom, and Component Based Servicing (CBS) as the middle man). This is incredibly simplistic, and actually not particularly accurate when you get into true detail, but detailed enough for now.

I have spent this afternoon reading the other posts and following the Windows Update Posting Instructions thread so hopefully I've gathered has much info as I can.

I downloaded and ran the System Update Readiness Tool. Once the installation was complete I tried to reinstall the updates. This resulted in the successful installation of: Hotfix for Windows (KB947821) but the failed installation of the other 9 updates as before.

And I received the following error code.

Hi,

Since 10/07/2014 I am having serious problems with 9 updates in Windows Update.
I just took a look at some other topics in this forum section and it seems I am not the only one having these problems.

I've already tried several things i've found on the internet, but nothing really nothing worked out for me.
I've tried the hotfix, didn't work out; i've tried multiple CMD commands, didn't work out; i've tried to rename the catroot2 folder, didn't work out either...

Is this problem common? Because most of the updates are important; so i'd like them to be installed and they keep on failing every day since then.

If I need to post or upload something, please tell me, because i'm not a computer expert ;-)

I have been unable to install Windows updates since mid-December, and now have some 11 outstanding.

My machine is a 5 year old Acer Aspire M3910 64 bit Intel Core i3 CPU 540 @3.07GHz with 8GB RAM running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1.

I have downloaded and installed the System Update Readiness Tool from the Microsoft site. However the CBS.zip file generated from the CBS file produced by running this tool is some 12 MB in size and falls foul of the 8MB limit imposed by the forum, and I cannot attach it. How do I get over this?

I have also run SFC /SCANNOW, but it identified no issues.

Help to resolve this updating error would be very much appreciated.

I'm trying to install update KB2639308 but it keeps saying that it fails and gives me the error code WindowsUpdate_FFFFFFFE. I looked it up online and it says that it can't update because of malware. However, when I run Norton and do a full system scan it doesn't find anything. I also tried to fix it with the Windows Update Troubleshooter and that doesn't help either. Is there anything else I can do without having to fully reinstall Windows 7 like the info on the site says? Please help.

A:Failed Windows Update, error code WindowsUpdate_FFFFFFFE

Hi,

A pre-requisite for this update is having Service Pack 1 installed. Can you confirm that this is the case?

Also, which version of Norton are you running? Is it the very latest? I have found posts where running Microsoft's own MSE doesn't find any malware, yet the error this occurs, so lets try something totally different:

Please perform an online virus scan using ESET
ESET Online Scanner

Can you also please run this tool to allow us to diagnose any other conditions that might prevent this update installing:

I have recently updated my preloaded window 8 to 8.1. However, after the update it does not accept my old window 8 key and requires me to activate again using a product key. Here is the error code: 0xC004C003
My DELL XPS came with a preloaded copy of window 8 and yes it has a window 8 sticker at the back
and was fully activated before I updated to windows  8.1.  And as far as I know, system which comes with preloaded window 8 has its product key injected to the motherboard and 8.1 is a free update for window 8 users.
So why the update does not accept my window 8 key and ask me for a new key ? I know my window 8 key cannot be used for any other system because the key is injected in the motherboard and I don't even know the key myself.
So what can I do now for my Window to be activated again ?
More frustration is that I can't get back to windows 8.
I tried to reset to the factory image by using DELL backup & Recovery software built in the system.
However, after resetting to the factory image it does not accept embedded product key.

Hey all,

I am interested in testing out the Windows 7 Release Candidate, my Windows Update detected it as a important update, I tried to install it through Windows Update twice, always failing with the error code "80073701". I have no idea why this is happening, and I haven't changed any important system settings.

Thanks for the help !

I had the "backup failed" problem and nothing that I did fixed the issue. I followed all of Microsoft's fixes to no avail. Luckily I found a website that had the exact fix, links to the free software you will need and detailed instructions (including screen shots). I followed the instructions and now my backup works flawlessly. The link to the website is below. Good luck!

Hi,

I am new to this forum and hope you may be able to help me with a problem with Windows 8 Pro backup.

As you would be aware this is called "Windows 7 File Recovery".

I have been using W8 Pro for about five months and running the backup utility for about four months with no major issues. I have used it to create a system image and scheduled to back up my data files weekly.

For the past two weeks I have been getting an error message "error code 0x80780049" along with a message that my files did not backup.

My backup is via esata to an external drive and as mentioned above this was working fine (I even tried a restore of a couple of files to prove it) but now it will not complete the backup. I even deleted the entire backup and started again from scratch but backup fails at about 50% completion. I have checked with windows defender and no viruses exist.

Any help would be appreciated otherwise I may revert to a W8 refresh but this will mean reloading my programs.

regards,

Harry..

A:error code 0x80780049 Windows Backup failed to complete

You sound very knowlegable but I just have to ask these stupid questions:

Do you have adequate room on your external drive or could it be running low?
Has you RAM usage increased recently because of some newly introduced programs?
Is your pagefile set to auto-adjust or has it been manually configured?

Hello,

I am trying to download and install windows updates so that they will be installed in my image when i come to deploy this for a client.

At the moment they are installing and then on reboot saying "Failed to configure windows updates" "Reverting change"

I imagine this will be quite a common error and a potentially easy fix.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Thanks.

Ignore errors produced when clicking on the Copy button - they simply mean that the tool could not create the backup files for some reason. The data is still copied to the clipboard for pasting to your response.

Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

Hi,

Each time, I get the error "WindowsUpdate_00000652" - Windows Update Encountered an unknown error. However, in between, another update (KB915597) has been installed successfully!

By the way, I did the following:

Run cmd.exe with administrative previlliges and type sfc /scannow

Would anyone has a proper solution that doesn't require a clean boot nor trying some 3rd-party patching software to manually test with risk of screwing up the OS?

Have tried the Windows Update Troubleshooter but didn't help.

Checked the windlowsupdate log file.

Originally the update said success and required computer restart.

Can Microsoft release a fixed patch so can roll it out to all the domain computers that had this issue?
