Hmmm, thought I started this and I was the OP of this thread!?

I think you started a different one bro. :toast:

I think one of the moderators merged the two together since they were on the same subject?

I don't think so... I started this thread, this is now my third post here https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/...ds-searching-for-updates.221756/#post-3445571

@Solaris17 you or a mod could have started your own thread with the fixes instead of removing my first post.

NOT cool!! :(

I think one of the moderators merged the two together since they were on the same subject?
I'm NOT stupid,
I know what threads I started and this is one of them, only now the word "FIXED!!" is added in the thread title and I'm no longer the OP of my own thread!!!

All without informing/asking me, the OP of this thread!

WTF!!

@P4-630 , I never indicated that you were "stupid" man! That was not the intention what so ever bro.

I'm very sorry if it came across sounding like that. :oops:

I just remember two different threads that were essentially the same thing and seem to remember one of the mods mentioning that they merged the two threads or something like that.

Sorry again if I made you feel that I was being an ass to ya bro. Never once had that intention. :(


EDIT: Sorry, this is the thread I was thinking of: https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/windows-7-no-longer-updates.228543/

It WAS NOT started by you or Solaris. I thought it was......My mistake.

I don't believe so. You might be able to, however, you have to agree to the Assistive Technologies from Microsoft: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/windows10upgrade
"assisstive technologies" followed the link, its all quite vague, huh?

Edit
So I looked into it and it's the actual definition of assistive technologies meaning assistance for the handicapped or disabled and although I am technically mentally disabled ;) I feel that it's wrong for me to use this method to upgrade just seems wrong morally. thanks though

It's a pretty new install he won't lose much if I do a fresh windows 10 install. Plus hopefully whatever's causing issues on seven won't be carried over this way

I just decided to go with the clean install of windows 10 and I got to the point where it asks for your windows key and it rejected my Windows 7 professional Key.I know the key worked because I had forgot to register window seven when I first installed it but I entered the key after word and it worked. I don't know if maybe it has to be untied from the Windows 7 PC first by upgrading fully maybe that Will work

I ended up having to do all the preliminary work on another one of my PCs. For some reason his new PC would not recognize any of the USB devices during the windows 10 installation or upgrade so I couldn't progress. I ended up doing the upgrade another PC later option and I did it on my PC once it was finished I brought it upstairs and it went right through the whole process just fine he's now customizing the windows 10 pro to his liking. Thank you to everyone who helped

I'm sure Solaris deserves a beer but I ended up not needing to buy him one. Recent experience on other machines made me dubious about performing the SP1 Rollup on a fresh install of W7 SP1. Instead, the rollup installed and first round of updates were found in under 15 minutes without needing the script. Total >15 minutes from start to finish!

For the sake of adding to this thread since links in the second post were no longer valid.

1. Install W7

2. Turn off or disable updates

3. April 2015 Servicing Stack Update.

4. Windows 7 SP1 Rollup (This is a direct download link to the file location on MS server!!)

5. Reboot

6. Again it is critical Windows Update is disabled or completely turned off if it wasn't already.

7. Run Windows Update Troubleshooter

8. Run Windows Update Manager

9. Install KB_3102810

10. Reboot

11. Enable Windows Update and start searching

I'm sure it has. Seeing as this is still sticky, the links were dying, and there was no guarantee of the SSU or SP1 Rollup installing on a fresh copy of W7 I spent two minutes punching at my keyboard.

Maybe I missed class the day MS decided to revert back to fully supporting W7 and updates are found nearly immediately. That installing large updates without their new version of the installer is not only possible but a truly trouble free experience as well. What I'm really trying to say is maybe others would benefit from a direct and full accounting if they bother to visit this site instead of askwoody.com.

My surprise at the ease was palpable.

regarding update F@ck ups with Win 10/7, I have had good success with just running the toubleshooter, and making sure to click the lower left hand "advanced options" link, to run in Admin mode, and it has always fixed the F@ckery with Update woes. Hopefully the same goes for others as well, although im certain it doesnt likely do so sometimes.

Be careful with that big update rollup if you have an AMD card - I have Rx 480 and the installer doesn't detect any AMD hardware with that update installed. Hopefully will be eventually fixed by AMD, but until then...

i'm going to sloppily not read anything in the thread & say that installing Windows6.1-KB3020369-x64 & windows6.1-kb3172605-x64 (if one says 'not for your system', run the other) on a SP1 installation that has been updated until around the time of the change to rollups (summer 2016) results in the update check dropping down to some minutes to an hour (depending on cpu single thread performance) as opposed to the 20+ hours it took on my sandy laptop cpu that was updated to november

boy that was a long 'sentence'

i saw that tip in some site's thread or article written by people trying to pay attention to which updates fix WU's checker

for a clean SP1 installation, back in the summer i had to do something similar, but i dont remember which installers fixed it then

oh & i dont actually accept every update in general, so i may have accidentally missed one of the speed up WU patches since i was avoiding a lot of that GWX crap, some of which was too innocently worded

edit: i can find the article that mentioned those two i specified at the top if someone wants, just quote me, it should be somewhere in browser history but i'm not in front of it at the moment

edit2:
Be careful with that big update rollup if you have an AMD card - I have Rx 480 and the installer doesn't detect any AMD hardware with that update installed. Hopefully will be eventually fixed by AMD, but until then...
no issue seen on kaveri but drivers were already installed, are you saying if i run the recent .2 or whatever it was whql from january that it will fail or is it a polaris exclusive issue?

Give it a try. Run the driver installer and see if it detects your GPU.
With drivers already installed everything works fine. It's when you try to install new version shit hits the fan. At least that's what happened to me and what seems to be what lots of people are reporting.
I presume it's all versions of the new driver.

I just rebuilt my X58 system and didn't have to do any of the Windows updates to fix the long search time, installed Win7 Pro SP1 and then just kept updating and restarting until it was done, didn't have a problem like I did last year with my Z170 or my laptop.
