  • Windows 2008 R2 Wont take any updates

    My Windows 2008 R2 wont take any updates. Even installing Service Pack 1 installing service pack 1, get stuck at configuring service pack 15%. I looked over the logs, even installed the "System Update Readiness Tool" and no go. I looked over the logs and looks like it keeps on waiting for "poqexec.exe to complete". Tried SFC /scannow and didnt find any errors. Next tried in place upgrade and still no go with any updates.

    x86 or x64?

    Which edition of 2008 R2?

    Anything in the event logs?

    What and when was the last update installed successfully?

    What is hosted on this server?

        Still don't know whether it's x86 or x64. For readability, in future you might want to put your answers separately from the quoted questions - you can split quotes up easily enough

        As for "What and when was the last update installed successfully?", "No" isn't a meaningful answer.

        What was the last update that installed correctly and how long ago was that?
