  • Windows Update Error - 0x8007F00B

    Hi,

    I tried to Google/Search the forums for some sort of solution but without any luck so please apologize if there was a simillar post before.

    Problem:
    I am trying to install Security Update KB958644 for Windows 2003.

    Using Automatic Update service failed and I am getting an error in system log:

    - following the link is useless.

    When using the patch as a .exe file downloaded from MS website I am receiving:
    " Could not locate entry for HALL.DLL in SETUP.LOG to determine type of HAL to update"

    This problem is occuring on only 2 Windows Server 2003 SP1 machines - i tried to install same file on other machine and it was OK.

    Do I need to install some patches first before installing this one? The KB article is not mentioning about that. I was unable to find the reason/solution for 0x8007f00 error code.

    Any advice will be more than welcome.
