So if I have a computer set to "never check for updates" where did the 208 downloads come from.

Back to Linux as soon as I flash the bios. :mad:

If that was the drive that came with it, maybe the updates were already marked to be downloaded before you turned updates off.

It's one I loaded for a MK-2.

Microsoft ties the computer up for several hours when I want to play.

Have they no respect?

Just guessing

Since it was loaded for a different laptop, it may not be activated anymore. That might have turned updates on?

A while back I sent you an USB stick with most of the updates on it. Offline install..

Your recovery DVD's will ship tomorrow.

Now we are at "Stage five of five Failure configuring Windows updates, reverting changes, do not turn off your computer"

Here comes a fresh W7 SP1 install in a few minutes....I could care less if W7 works, I just want to flash the bios. If it will boot from DVD that is. I can boot from the MK2 if I have to.

I can't sit and watch this thing all the time.

Where do you suppose the stick is.

I let this run thinking sound would come on.

Do you need a DOS DVD to flash that with?

Did you try your DOS hard drive? You need to flash in DOS anyway. (as far as I know)

Here is the trick.
Put the drive in the mk2. Make sure it boots and windows works.

Then go to device manager and uninstall all of the major devices. Right click on each device--uninstall. Ignore any must reboot warnings.

Now run the driver bundle installer for the mk3 while the drive is still in the mk2. Manually install if you have to. Pinstall forces.
After the drivers are installed, shut down and pull the drive.
Put the drive into the mk3 and boot. It should work almost perfectly except for maybe one or two drivers.

I have done this from a mk1 to a mk2 and from a mk2 to a mk3.

Immediately run the offline updater usb stick. Even before connecting wifi.
Disable windows updates. (UWT works good)
Connect wifi.
