Several of our Windows 7 Professional 64 bit machines recently updated to SP1, however, at reboot they are stuck with the following error:
fatal error c0000034 applying operation 282 of 117609

We have tried the following suggestions with no luck.

Suggestion 1 Failed: opening the Pending.xml file to locate a .cdf-ms reference (which we could not find on any of the machines we tried).
Suggestion 2 Failed: Restoring from a restore prompt (no available restore points).
Suggestion 3 Failed: Modifying the registry (key wasn't found under the specified location)
Suggestion 4 Failed: DISM /image:C:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions (failed every time we attempted it).

At this point, if we can not locate a viable solution we will be reinstalling Windows 7 on way too many computers to count.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Modifying the Pending.xml file finally worked.  

We finally figured out why we were unable to locate the specific string within the Pending.xml file........we were looking at the wrong drive.  When going into the repair there are 2 drives (for us) that both had Windows directories.  Basically, don't use the X drive.  Use the C or in our case the D drive.  Once we found the correct drive we were able to locate the 0000000000000000.cdf-ms reference, remove the appropriate information, reboot, and success.

The computers fail the install of SP1, but they show it installed, maybe a good thing so their computers won't attempt the update (just kidding).  

Thank you for your suggestions.
