Windows 7 SP1 Fatal Fix

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/03...1_fatal_error/

As detailed here.

This fix has worked for us over a number of PC's. Seemingly a high propensity for it to knacker Sony 64bit machines. Might just be coincidence though.

This update is part of Windows 7 SP1, on shutdown or during update operating it gets to Operation 282 of 117*** (last 3 numbers depend on how ever many other updates there are) and you get

Fatal error C0000034 applying update operation 282 of ******


This method works without Safe Mode, without backups, without System Restore, without DISM, and without a Windows 7 DVD repair disc.


INSTRUCTIONS:

01. Reboot your computer while it's starting up.

02. When your computer starts up again, choose the option "Launch Startup Repair"
--> PIC: http://notebooks.com/wp-content/uplo...01/Recov-1.jpg

03. When the Startup repair starts, click cancel.

04. After you click cancel it will show a box. Click "Don't Send"
--> PIC: http://i52.tinypic.com/xgjriw.png

05. Click the link "View advanced options for recovery and support"

06. In the new window click Command Prompt at the bottom.
--> PIC: http://i51.tinypic.com/50imu8.png

07. In Command Prompt type this and press enter: %windir%\system32\notepad.exe

08. Notepad will open. In notepad go to File-->Open.

09. Change the type of files notepad views from .txt to All Files (see pic)
--> PIC: http://i51.tinypic.com/35nd74z.png

10. Now in Notepad, go to C:\Windows\winsxs\ (or whichever drive Windows is installed on)

11. In that folder, find pending.xml and make a copy of it

12. Now open the original pending.xml (it will load really slow because the file is huge)

13. Press CNTRL+F and search for the following exactly: 0000000000000000.cdf-ms

14. Delete the following text (yours will be a little different):
<Checkpoint/>
<DeleteFile path="\SystemRoot\WinSxS\FileMaps\_000000000000000 0.cdf-ms"/>
<MoveFile source="\SystemRoot\WinSxS\Temp\PendingRenames\e56 db1db48d4cb0199440000b01de419._0000000000000000.cd f-ms" destination="\SystemRoot\WinSxS\FileMaps\_00000000 00000000.cdf-ms"/>

--> PIC: http://i54.tinypic.com/adzpzp.png

Your PC might not have all 3 sections of code (<Checkpoint>, <DeleteFile>, <MoveFile>). Just make sure you delete section "Checkpoint" and whatever other sections have "000000000000000.cdf-ms". They will be right next to eachother.

15. Save the file, close notepad, close command prompt, restart your computer.


Once your computer starts up, do a normal startup (it may stall for 5-10 minutes at the "starting windows" screen, but leave it going) and the Service Pack will install some more stuff and restart a few times and then everything should be working! For some people, it reverts everything and cancels the service pack installation. For other people, the service pack installation completes. Either result is fine.

Note that also save/copies on that pending.xml will also take a long time. No multithreading or proper drivers in recovery mode ftl.

I've had this happen to 5 Dell Studio XPS machines since Friday.

Pain in the tits as they're at remote sites.

I've never sent out SPs via WSUS - as I've never trusted it at all. For sure wont be doing it with W7 SP1 either.
Have manually installed SP1 on 5 PCs now without troubles luckily.

To be fair the WSUS install doesn't seem to be the defining factor.

Fair play... consider myself even more fortunate then! Wonder if it's specific hardware/chipset related.

Or possibly some of the bloaty shite that OEM's stuff on. Sony have about 24 items in msconfig startup. encryption, fingerprint readers, softswitches for wifi, gfx card switching. You name it. All manner of guff from the bios to the start button. Hard to pin the blame on MS at this stage really.

Is this related to not having KB2454826 installed first? There's something about SP1 and not installing that update first causing BSOD's in rare cases. It's possible I'm being thick and it's unrelated though, it wouldn't be the first time.

Different. This isn't a BSOD - just a recursive boot of utter fail.

According to the register article this issue mainly targets OEM installs although they are undecided as to what it is about them. MS techs have even asked for VM's of affected machines to be sent in. According to most of the comments also seems to be a high percentage on 64bit machines. However I did mine the other day (Win7 Pro 64) and I've not had any issues.

N1 Matt. Similar number of cases to the XP SP3 HP killer ?

In so much as it's an OEM problem - but nowhere near as many and not AMD specific. In fact I've not seen it on an AMD platform. XP3's problem with HP was the shared images between intel/amd deployments.
