OK.   If the cdrom is no longer there, don't know why the driver would be called for.

Delete the 2 log files and the sip files you created.

 

We will try 2 more steps before imaging the new SSD.

 

  • Download the System Update Readiness Tool (x64) and save it to some place, its a big download, please keep the file > save to the desktop
  • https://docs.microso...ws-update-error
  • Post back when you have the download.
  • Pick you time for running it, may take a couple of hours, Disable sleep and hybernation so it is not interupted.
  • =========================================
  •  
  • Double click to run the tool. Its like an Update but it can take a long time to do the work. You will get an Installation Complete screen when it's done running
  • Please attach to your post the log from the following location: C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log
    Note: If the file is too big please Zip it and upload the ZIP file

 

Thanks to SleepyDude for the instructions.

Ok, I will do that.

The second link is dead  - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/windows-server/deployment/fix-windows-update-error    

 

I have turned off the power save mode. A question :  do I turn off hibernation using the CMD prompt and this :  powercfg.exe /hibernate off?

 

Also I have been reading up the readiness tool - and it says there is no progress bar.  That is worrisome because there is no indicator of how far along it is.  I am going to run it before bed tonight --do you know if it will reboot upon completion?

Try this link > https://docs.microso...s-update-errors

Yes run powercfg.exe /hibernate off? and when all done, > run powercfg.exe /hibernate on.

 

You do get a progress bar but no running percent display, so often the progress bar does not move so people assume something is stuck, usually not the case, you can tell it is still running by the HDD blinking light. 

 

The computer will not shutdown,

I completely forgot that I wanted to run a system virus check before I did a backup and the windows update.  Last night was  too late to wait for it, so I got the Virus check an the MR backup today.  Running the Update and it wants to know if I should install a hotfix KB47821 before continuing?

When i search Microsoft I find that hot fix is for the Readiness tool,    It appears to be the same tool as I wanted you to download and run in Post #107

 

>https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=20858 

  • This tool is being offered because an inconsistency was found in the Windows servicing store which may prevent the successful installation of future updates, service packs, and software. This tool checks your computer for such inconsistencies and tries to resolve issues if found.

 

Perhaps another update was being tried and errors were detected so the tool is being offered to fix them, just a guess there.   I would run it, but, knowing you won't want to use the computer for some time, maybe before you go to bed.

Ok, you are not going to believe this, but the update took about 5 minutes and then is said "installation complete".  I ran it again, just in case something was amiss. Same thing, 5 minutes and complete.  That doesn't seem right.  There were no errors.

You will need to look at the logs C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log

 

Thought I would run it, just to see what happens, took nearly 3 hours, 483 errors, 2 fixed, 481 packages unavailable.

 

This old W7 computer runs without a hitch for about 5  years, so don't know what gives, may need to get some help for myself.

Going to run scannow to see what happens.

================================

 

Scannow ran for 6 minutes, no errors.

Here are the two files it made at the time.

Both seem to be ok from a quick look using notepad.

All good.

-----------------------------

 

Open CMD as Admin > run sfc /scannow If all OK, 

 

Next job will be cleaning the 250GB SSD then transfering the W7 image.

 

You will need s spare SATA cable and a 4GB min USB stick.

Ok, does the USB have to be blank?

Are we going to disregard the diskscan issue at boot for now and move on?

No, it will be formatted when you crate the bootable USB.

Yes, Hoping that the new SSD will not invoke a chkdsk. 

 

I will post back this evening, my time,  with more instructions.
