    Some updates are still marked as pending.

    Boot from the Windows 7 DVD or Windows Recovery Environment (F8)[1] and run the command prompt and run this:

    DISM /image:C:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions

    (replace C: with the drive where you installed Windows 7)

    This reverts all pending operations. Now boot into Windows 7 and try to install the updates.
