windows update won't install any update at all...
Posted on 2003-11-23
Hi there.. I'm having this little but consistent problem with windows update. I've just installed a new Win XP pro and since the first moment I couldn't get windows update to work. It scans the system, it shows me the updates, I select any of them (I mean any!) , go for 'Install', I accept the agreement, it goes IMMEDIATELY to 100% of the download and then it fails .. 'No updates were installed'.. there's no error code..
I have two disks .. the master is the one on which I'm installing XP on the other there's Win 2000 server installed. When XP first loaded the boot drive had the letter G: and win 2000 drive had C: I thought this was the reason.. so I changed it in the registry HK_local_machine/software/system/mountdevices .. After this the OS didn't boot up so I did a repair of the whole XP installation from the XP CD.. now it boots up correctly and the drive letters are in order.. but still windows update won't work.. same behaviour.. I haven't found any solution anywhere.. so I guess it must be something quite simple and obvious.. but I can't get what it is.. does it have anything to do with the drive letters? I see it as the only source of the problem..
