  1. XMP FIX _Windows 10 Update Install_ H21_X


    Windows 10 Pro has given me nightmares ever since I decided to install it instead of my trusty Windows 7 Pro. It wouldn't install at all. Then I used a really old Pentium class computer to install it and then transferred to the I7 PC. Worked, but consistently crashed and I couldn't understand root cause after spending hours trying. Finally one day it just wouldn't boot. All lost.Quite a few people had similar experiences. I reinstalled Win 10 using the same method and same thing but this time I noticed instability occurred every time Win 10 tried to update cumulative update 21Hx. Sure enough,

    :)

    FIXED!! Windows 7 sp1 never ends searching for updates

    Yeah, I've been noting it for months on the refusenik thread. They do NOT want anything older than 10 running.

    I still have an HTPC on W7, and every other month I have to fix the update agent in order to get all updates. SMH....

    You provided a good step by step fix. I've bookmarked it for future reference.
