windows update failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • I upgraded from a 500GB with 512B physical sector size to a 750GB disk with 4096 physical sector size using Acronis Disk Director disk clone without resizing.  There are two OS installed Vista business x64 that came with the computer, a Thinkpad x61, and Win7 x86 which I recently added.  Both systems work fine on the old disk, including Windows Update.  The cloned OSs work fine except for the exception of Windows Update which gives me an error 0XC8000247.  I tried to install wusa.exe in Win7 and get the same error.  I have used disk clone several times with this computer, all with success.

    On the net I saw one mention that Update might be sensitive to sector size changes.  Any suggestions?
