Can't update windows like systems to give me an error that it cannot find a file and he needs me to insert the media.

Original title: re install windows 8.1.

I have problems with my computer and want to re install windows 8.0. I had upgraded my computer windows 7 to windows 8 but can't update windows like systems to give me an error that it cannot find a file and he needs me to insert the media.  I insert the windows disc 8, but the system indicates that it is not the correct information.  He is looking for another disc?  I created a recovery usb drive, but that doesn't seem to help.  I feel that I have completely new install windows 8 but I am nervous of course think I mess up something.  given that this computer was originally shipped with windows 7, I have to use the recovery discs I've done initially or is there a way to create new ones with the new windows 8?

Hello and welcome!

If you are using a CD to upgrade of Windows 8, then there not all reinstall the files included for a full Windows.

Your best option is to use the recovery partition on your hard disk or the recovery CD from your PC back to Windows 7. Then Windows 7 SP1 upgrade and get all updates. Then, move to Windows 8 again.

    Hello

    • What were the changes made before the problem occurred?

    I recommend you perform the clean boot.
     
    Configuration of your system in a clean boot state helps determine if third-party applications or startup items are causing the problem. If so, you need to maybe contact the manufacturer of the program for updates or uninstall and reinstall the program.

    Hello shessy49, welcome.

    I would recommend that we run a SFC (System File Checker) first scan to see what he finds. Try this:

    1. click on START
    2 type "msconfig" (without the quotes) and press enter
    3. go to the "Startup" tab and uncheck all the entries displayed
    4. click on 'Apply' at the bottom right
    5 restart your computer

    ---
    After the reboot
    ---

    1. click on START
    2. Type "cmd" (without the quotes). Right-click on the result at the top of the menu START and select 'run as administrator '.
    3. type "sfc/scannow" (without the quotes) and press enter

    If the question started very recently, you can try a system restore:

    1. click on START
    2. click on "all programs".
    3. click on "Accessories".
    4. click on "system tools."
    5. click on "system restore."

    6 follow the prompts shown to restore your system to a date before the problem started. Although the system restore does not target the personal data, it is recommended that you back up all data such as music, photos and documents in case something is not bad.

    Not knowing what you tried to do so far to remedy this, here are my suggestions...

    Make sure that your time and time zone are set correctly.

    If you are not on the level of service pack 3, you need to get there.

    Go through the following, in order, as needed.

    Search for malware:

    Download, install, execute, update and perform analyses complete system with the two following applications:

    Remove anything they find. Reboot when necessary. (You can uninstall one or both when finished.)

    Search online with eSet Online Scanner.

    Reset.

    How to reset the Windows Update components?

    Reset.

    Try to get updates.

    If it still does not work, try this...

    1. Start an elevated command prompt.
    2. Run the following commands pressing on enter after each line:

      net stop wuauserv

      CD %SystemRoot%\System32

      Ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old

      net start wuauserv
    3. Reset
    4. Try to reinstall updates

    the following issues occur when you perform this operation:

    • Updates that are currently downloaded but which have not yet been installed must be downloaded again by using Windows Update or Microsoft Update.
    • When you remove the Software Distribution folder, your download history is deleted.
    • If you currently receive updates from Microsoft Update and Windows Update, you will need to reselect this option from the Windows Update Web site.


    * Note *
    if the problem is resolved and you can successfully download and install the updates, you can delete the directory SoftwareDistribution.old to recover disk space.

    I had problems installing an update and I thought that was the problem, so I followed the instructions and installed the update (KB2855336) on a clean restart. When I put the settings back to normal reboot I see the update succeeded, but the computer is still a good 10 minutes to restart.

    I tried to do a repair, but this is notauto-start.

    I tried to run a sfc/scannow and that froze the verification step 100%, I have waited a long time, checked in the Task Manager and saw that he was inactive and if you click end task.

    My Task Manager shows 99% or 100% use of the disk.

    I tried to do a system restore to a point in mid-July and which failed, error 0x80071a90 code.

    I followed the advice of someone to uninstall the update and restart twice, but the problem persists.

    What can I do to fix this? I use my laptop to work and so I need this problem as soon as possible.
