Brand New T430 and Failure to Install Windows Updates

2012-09-27, 22:49 PM

I have built many systems as well as purchased and configured laptops but this one has me stumped.  I have attempted several times to intall Windows updates on my brand new T430 but when the system goes to install them it eventually says that there was a failure to do so and the laptop will revert back.  Thinking it might be due to updates via wirelessly I have tried it via ethernet connection but with the same results.

 

I have tried it by turning off security software and the firewall but the same thing occurs.

 

Please, any tips here?  Thanks.

'evening.

 

it's a known Microsoft issue. we have a Community knowledgebase article here:

http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/Windows-updates-not-installing-system-config-looping/ta-p/845133

 

basically, install KB2647753 all by itself, first. once complete, with any needed reboot, the others will install successfully.

 

cheers.

And another thank you - same problem, your solution worked. A few of the updates then failed but worked when installed again.

Thanks from me as well.  Received a T430s last Friday and this has been driving me nuts.
