Re: B540 - Failure configuring Windows Updates - Windows 8 to windows 8.1

hi Geam79,


Welcome to the Forums.


Can you try the following:

1. Run this Windows Update Automated Troubleshooter to fix common Windows Update errors.

2. If the Failure configuring Windows update appears then does a roll back then there's likely a problem with one of the updates that are getting installed.


To isolate, set Windows Update to "never check for updates" (see this guide)  then install them one by one (oldest ones first) or by group of two, three, or five and observe.



Let me know how it goes.
