I have a Samsung 7 Gamer laptop that comes with Windows 8 installed. I have an MSDN subscription and I wanted to install Windows 8 Pro. I have tried both adding the Pro code into the pre-installed Windows as well as a fresh clean install.
Windows Update is having problems. Updates are listing as being available but once the download starts it seems to just stop and go back to the list of updates. Or it sometimes says there are no updates available at all.
I have looked on the net and tried various steps there such as uninstalling my NVidia drivers, disabling all start-up services except Microsoft ones and running
sfc /scannow via a command prompt.
I have looked into the log file and am seeing a few errors like these:
2013-04-21 15:26:29:464 1124 d74 DnldMgr Download job bytes total = 1989293, bytes transferred = 1330139 2013-04-21 15:26:30:977 1124 5d0 WuTask Uninit WU Task Manager 2013-04-21 15:26:31:352 1124 106c Agent * WARNING: Exit code = 0x8024000B 2013-04-21 15:26:31:352 1124 106c Agent ********* 2013-04-21 15:26:31:352 1124 106c Agent ** END ** Agent: Finding updates [CallerId = AutomaticUpdates] 2013-04-21 15:26:31:352 1124 106c Agent ************* 2013-04-21 15:26:31:352 1124 106c Agent WARNING: WU client failed Searching for update with error 0x8024000b
Then further on:
2013-04-21 15:26:32:649 1124 d3c AU WARNING: Failed to get Wu Exemption info from NLM, assuming not exempt, error = 0x80070490 2013-04-21 15:26:32:649 1124 d3c AU UpdateDownloadProperties: download priority has changed from 3 to 2. 2013-04-21 15:26:32:649 1124 d3c AU WARNING: Failed to change download properties of call, error = 0x80070057
It's almost like it starts to download then just decides to give up. I did manage to persuade some very small updates to install. But the others just fall over.
Any help appreciated!
