KB3033929 fails to install and cause a minor "infinite" loop

I'm having problems with the KB3033929 update from the latest run of Tuesday patches. After installation the PC reboots, but during the boot up configuration of the patch it fails and Windows starts reverting the configuration and reboots. And then it starts all over again a couple of times until it eventually boot into Windows. I looked into Windows' setup logs and found the following:  

- A reboot is necessary before package KB3033929 can be changed to the Installed state.

- Package KB3033929 failed to be changed to the Installed state. Status: 0x80004005.

- Initiating changes for package KB3033929. Current state is Invalid Installed. Target state is Staged. Client id: WindowsUpdateAgent.

- Package KB3033929 was successfully changed to the Staged state.

So what is wrong?

@Shodan2k only! => Is KB3035131 already listed in Installed Updates (not Update History)?

<EDIT>
Is GNU GRUB boot loader installed?

I have the same problem as Shodan2k in thread "KB3033929 fails to install and cause a minor "infinite" loop". As a reply to your question, PA Bear MS MVP, I checked that KB3035131 shows as installed update, but KB3033929 is not listed as installed update. The system on which the installation of KB3033929 failed has Windows 7 Home Premium SP1. I have several workstations and I succeeded to install KB3033929 via Windows Update on a system with Windows 7 Professional SP1.

same problem here as all the others.  3035131 installed and KB3033929 fails to install.

Should I uninstall 3035131 and attempt to reinstall one or the other, in a different order?
Please help!

I'm having the same problem.   The Update KB3033929 fails to configure on reboot.   My log shows that KB3035131 was successfully installed yesterday, and it is listed in the log before KB3033929.   Since installation in October 2014, and until today, no updates have failed or been skipped for any reason.

I believe I had the exact same problem on the same machine with the previous update KB2949927 mentioned in the KB3033929 advisory last October.   In October I found I had to reinstall Windows and all application software on that machine to finally install KB2949927.  It gives me no joy to learn from the KB3033929 Advisory that Microsoft has apparently not found the installation problem and chose to release a similar broken update a second time.

While it is probable that major governments and some major corporations can dedicate the resources necessary to break SHA-1, that's probably not the weakest point in the security infrastructure of Microsoft Windows.   I suggest that the SHA-2 authentication of downloaded programs supported by KB3033929 can wait until this installation problem is found.

I respectfully request that Microsoft once again rescind the update, and correct the problem before releasing a similar update a third time.   If Microsoft needs a customer to help isolate the specific problem, I would be willing to spend the time necessary to get it done.

My machine is a 6-core Windows 7 Ultimate workstation running a rather diverse collection of applications.
