can't install Windows 8.1.1


Honorable Member
I've tried about a dozen times. It will download but won't install. The error message keeps changing. I've used the DISM tool and most of the time it crashes and claims it can't find a source. The few times its worked, it hasn't helped. I even chatted with the Microsoft answer desk, but they want to charge for their help. Seemed like they really didn't know either.

Is there anyway anymore to do a windows repair that just refreshes the system files without destroying your installed software? They give me a long list of what I will need to reinstall when I do a refresh.

My computer started life with Win 7 and I've upgraded it to the latest versions until now.

It appears you may be having network connection problems. Are you seeing anything regarding loss of connectivity. Such a problem may also be the result of anti-virus or firewall programs.

Giving us an example of the type of error messages may help, and have you checked the Event Viewer to see if anything there might be related?

Each Windows 8 update seems to get more restrictive on the types of programs that can be run on it. If you have had your system up for a long time, do you have any older software that could be involved?

You can try opening an Administrative command prompt and doing a SFC /scannow command. It might find something, but it may not be able to repair it.

SFC never found any problems. Right now Dism won't even run - just hangs. Sat at 40% all night and now it won't do anything. But my last log said the following (I'm just including the problem lines)

The error 80070005 is an access denied error and normally happens because people used the guest or some other parentally controlled account to try and install the update.

To be clear, you don’t need an internet connection to install the update once it has been downloaded but you MUST have full admin rights.

I only have one user account on my computer and it's an administrator account. The MS answer desk told me the same thing and said that some kind of malware is stealing my permissions. I ran Malawarebytes, which I do periodically, besides running pcmatic supershield. It did find a PUP from softonics - I remember using their download manager at the recommendation of a Znet blogger. I should have known better. But I got rid of it and it made no difference.

Can you run update from the command prompt in administrator mode?

The short answer is no… there are codes for it but IME Microsoft does not allow command line access to theirs. If you own a wsus server then you can allow command line access to that and on your own head be it.

I find it interesting that a SFC /scannow found no errors… even on a healthy system I would expect to see some but looking at the error codes you posted again, it does appear the issue is at least partly network based.

Please press [windows key] + [x] and select "command prompt (Admin)" This should load up into a new administrator cmd panel where you can run this next script from ie. "Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /analyzecomponentstore" with out the quotes (also caps and lowerclass are the same thing to windows)… this normally only takes a couple minutes.

Don’t stress if it advises you to cleanup but just confirm for us that it is not corrupt?

I ran sfc /scannow again...
It didn't find any integrity violations.

Then I ran "Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /analyzecomponentstore" and got this...

Not sure if it's related, but according to the event viewer, my system had 2 critical errors (41) last night in the Kernel-power source. The explanation is "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

I always shut down with the proper sequence, so I'm not sure why this would happen. I actually let my computer run overnight, but I had reboot several times last evening.
