I have a system here that the hard drive is starting to fail, so I ghosted the information to a new hard drive. The hard drive is a Western Digital 320GB.
The problem that I have been having is that when I ghosted it over, I have tried reloading from the recovery partition. Now, the reload works just fine, but when it gets all done, the system does not do Windows Updates.
I get the error code 8024a000. (EDIT: It's error 80080005)
So, I have tried to install Service Pack 2 (this is Vista, and yes it starts with SP1), and it fails right away with Catastrophe Failure (E_UNEXPECTED(0x8000ffff))
I have tried reloading the system several times from the recovery partition, and I have gotten the same result.
So, I have tried now with wiping all the partitions and loading with a Windows disc. Guess what? Same error!
Help me please! Thanks in advance!
