I installed Windows 7 Service Pack 1 for 64-bit system on my laptop after it appeared on Windows Update. The install seemed to go alright, however, when I restarted the computer at the prompt of Windows Update, it gets as far as the Starting Windows screen, before throwing 'Fatal Error C0000034 applying update operation 282 of 114599 (_00000...)'
At this point, the startup sequence hangs and gos no further. I restarted again by switching off at the mains, and this time was prompted to run Startup Repair. I tried this, however the Startup Repair program hung (I left it for several hours with apparently no effect). I then proceeded to try the following things:
-Boot in Safe Mode
This led to the startup to hang at the 'Loaded: CLASSPNP.SYS', 'Please wait...' stage. Again, left for several hours, no progress.
- Run the recovery CD to restore from a System Restore point.
The program hung at the restoring system stage - again, left for several hours, nothing happens.
- On advice from google, I tried using the recovery console to run DISM /image:D:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions (I should mention that the recovery CD seems to think my windows install is now at D rather than C)
This led to an error attached at http://cid-78779374d6b6f1f3.office.live.com/self.aspx/.Public/dism.log
- Booting from last known good configuration
This just resulted in the same error as when I boot it normally
I haven't tried a complete system reinstall, as ideally I'd like to keep my files...
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
