Updates failing, caught in an infinite Windows Update Loop.

Got a new Lenovo Thinkpad Carbon X1 (i7).  When I first turned it on it wanted to install 60 updates.  I let it install them, but upon reboot it says it failed and is rolling back the updates.  Every morning when I wake up it tells me updates were installed and failed and removed.  So I have had to turn windows automatic update off and now I'm 60 updates behind.  This thing is brand spanking new out of the box and was expensive.  So how can it be so disfunctional already?  Maybe I'll send it back and get another Sony.   :-(

Okay I found it, it's here:

 

http://devnote.tmeta.com/2012/09/solved-windows-updats-fails-on-brand.html

 

Basically you have to install just this one update first:  KB2647753.

 

Then reboot and supposedly the other updates will work after that.  At least that's what I read on that page, I am about to try it, will post again if it doesn't work.

Glad you found a solution.

For reference, we've also got a Community KB article on it from last year:

I had the same problem. Pretty sure the solution you linked was how I solved it, too.
