Original title: Windows Phone 7 Update Failed Error Code: 80070424
I have been trying to update the OS on my Windows Phone 7 for several months with no success. Every time I launch Zune and run the update process, I get an error message, quoting code 80070424. I am using Windows 7 on my PC.
Importantly, I have realised that I can't update Windows 7 via the update tool either. It would appear that these things are linked.
I have tried many, many solutions listed on the forums and support areas and it suggests that the issue might rest in the BITS service. I have checked in the Service area and BITS isn't in there. I have tried restarting using the repair tool and that hasn't been successful either.
Forums are suggesting that the only solution to this is a system roll-back. That sounds like total overkill to me, there has to be a simpler solution. What would be even better is if the problem is exclusive and that I can fix my phone update and my computer update with separate fixes.
