  • Any error messages? Check the cbs.log file in c:\windows\system32\logs\cbs. You will need to run as administrator to open the file.

    Take a look at this blog is may give some pointers on what to look for

  • to see the cause of Windows7 update failures (also for SP), we must look for error messages in the following log files:

    Please run the Windows Explorer and go to the folder "C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\" and copy all files to your document folder, also copy the setupapi.dev.log from the folder C:\Windows\Inf, the "C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log" and the file "C:\Windows\winsxs\poqexec.log" to your document folder (otherwise you can't upload it), zip all files into 1 ZIP and upload the zip to your SkyDrive [1] and post a link here.
