Windows 7 Home Premium 32Bit
say, Windows 7 service pack 1 update keeps failing when installing via Windows update.
I've tried installing it by downloading it directly but this causes  a black screen on reboot and no hard drive activity.
I run a windows repair on boot and it offers to apply restore point.
The system restarts and works.
What do you suggest to resolve?

The file I used was windows6.1-KB976932-X86.exe
as intel M/board

This link gives several options but wasn't sure ...

I recently rebuilt an HP with Home Premium and had this same issue. After install I downloaded and attempted install SP1 (KB936380) it failed, so I opened Windows Update and checked for updates. Installed, rebooted. Checked again. Repeated process until "Service Pack 1" was ready to install. From Windows Update the install failed, but I retried the downloaded on and it was successful. Sp2 was successful after that folloed by 50+ updates, all successful.

Hope this helps

No.  But you can probably get a download of the Win 7 .iso you need here

I take no responsibility for safety, but everything I have seen indicates this is legit.  You really have little to lose if you have tried all the suggested fixes to Windows Updates.

Do a back up first to safeguard the personal data.

In answer to your question about which file to download, click the +More button at the bottom left of the list.  
The download you want is

windows6.1-KB976932-X86.exe

The way you object is to click the Object button (the gray button) at the bottom of the Post a Comment area.  You still have not done it.
