So, i've been having trouble with a friend's laptop, and i pretty much have gone through everything i know, and a LOT of googling and nothing!
I have installed Windows Vista x86 Home Basic, all went well(even if i find it weird that the hard drive is partitioned in 140gb for c: and a 9gb for d: ) BUT when it comes to install updates.....it has been a real challenge! a lot of updates would not install, a lot of errors, which, with a lot of patiente i've been able to surpass, except for one! the update KB938371(which, if i am correct, is vital to install SP1) will not install for anything, always giving me error 80073712... I don't know what else to do, because i feel like i've done everything already, and since i already formatted the damn computer about 3 or 4 times in the last week, i was so hoping that i wouldn't have to do it again!
My CBS folder is attached, and i would love to do the same for my components file but it says it's open someplace else and i can't copy it! Still, it has 17,2Mb, and when i open it on regedit it is not empty at all.
Please someone help me, because never before a computer was such a challenge for me! :banghead:
