Still no love!
I managed to update everything on a one by one basis but the Win 8.1. update 1 still fails!
Now on to the possible fixes. :cheers:
I can't install KB2919355 - it goes all the way to 99% installation then states:"We couldn't complete the upgrades Windows changes. Undoing changes. Don't turn off your computer". It then rolls back to the way it was before trying to update. MS knows there's a problem - http://www.neowin.net/news/microsoft...m-wsus-servers
WSUS); and only affects subsequent updates, not the main 8.1 Update.
If you used Windows Update, your problem is more likely one of the other issues collated by Susan Bradley (not #4): KB2919355 issues being tracked
Went through on the third attempt. Havnt noticed anything different as yet as I have always booted to desktop with Start8. No doubt the changes will emerge in the days to follow.
I piddled around in Windows 8.1 Update 1 (8.1.1 sounds better) for a bit, and didn't find anything much different. Nothing renamed or Personalizations undone that I noticed. I unpinned the Store App from the taskbar, then booted my TBWinRE EFI Rescue USB and launched Image For Windows, selected Restore and navigated to my laptop's full drive image on my NAS. I selected the EFI partition image as source and the laptop EFI partition as target, and got my Windows 7 bootmgr.efi restored.
I shut down the laptop, removed the USB stick and started it back up. I chose Windows 8 in the good ole Windows 7 boot menu, and it booted just fine. I then rebooted and selected Windows 7, which also booted just fine, and then reminded me that I have Windows Updates available - 61, as it turns out (after hiding the Bing Bar and Bing Desktop optional updates again).
I'll recheck for updates on both sides of my dual boot one more time, then boot my TBWinRE EFI Rescue USB and make a fresh full drive image of my laptop.
I forgot to mention that I'm using StartIsBack+ on 8.1, and nothing at all changed with it. Boots to the desktop with the StartIsBack+ Start Menu.
I'm still getting error 800705AA. Which of course the "Help with this error" provides no useful information.
I read the articles and thought it might be because I'd moved the Documents, Pictures, Downloads, and Video's files to my G: drive. So I move them back using the Reset to Defaults option button on the properties window, rebooted and unfortunately got the same result. :angry:
Come on MS you make it easy to move this stuff then screw it up with an update!
I didn't have any problems installing the update but, on restart, my system was so slow I had to uninstall it. Couldn't find any processes running that would have caused it. After the uninstall everything is back to normal.
I've had no problems with the update (that I've found so far). RG, I also have my documents etc on another partition so I wonder if that's a red herring for you (though you've probably already decided that).
I did get the update KB2929355, not a twitch. And this one sees my Office 2000, yeah ! I had to reset a few Windows to open Maximized to fill my screen. I also had to Signing again, here, at Secrets. Jean.
No, I reset each one manually. HTH :cheers:
Is it possible you missed one? I have documents, downloads, favorites, pictures, music, and Videos folders under my user ID.
Update: Those running Windows 8 will be able to move to 8.1 Update without updating to 8.1 first, Microsoft officials said.
