Clean install-Win7 not updating?

Just received MS cert refurbished Lenovo 530--

First time running Windows update, just sits w/'Checking for updates' and times out after an hour or so with 8024A006 error.

Tried renaming \Windows\SoftwareDistribution per Google search--no change.

At this point it's simpler to reinstall from recovery partition than test a lot of possibilities absent a probable solution--unless for some weird reason I'm going to run into the same problem.

That's why I'm here.

You suggest...?

I think it's a Microsoft issue... I had the same issue before.   Try downloading all the updates off line.

#4 or 5 would be good bets, and you can Slipstream your installation disk at the same time....

After about the 4th until suggested by the Win 7 forum I was finally able to get the updater working.
