I recently upgraded my pc: new mobo, cpu, ram, video card, p/s. I kept the same hard drive and optical drive. After assembling the system and configuring bios, when I tried to start Windows XP SP2 (home edition) I received a Boot.ini missing error. I repaired Windows using the CD-ROM, and everything seemed fine. After installing the drivers for the new hardware, I attempted to use Windows update. All of the updates (80+) would download, but they all failed to install.
I can go to each update's download page, download it, and install it manually, but I cannot get Windows Update to do it automatically. I have managed to download about 20 of the updates and this is really getting tiresome.
I have tried everything on this list, but to no avail. Please, somebody help me before I swear off Windows altogether.
