    The old damn 80070490 error

    Hi Guys,

    Im receiving this annoying error every time I try to perform updates in my installation.

    I have a Sony Vaio with Vista Ultimate 64 pt-br SP2 pre-installed, and have NO VISTA INSTALLATION DISK ( ), only a recovery partition.

    Ive reading all foruns, tips, news and tricks to fix this problem and until now none worked.

    I even tried to do an upgrade with another windows vista ultimate 64 (original) I have, but the "upgrade" option is greyed because the vista package I am trying to install has a different language than the one installed in my system. Applied en-us language pack and same greyed upgrade option.

    I am almost buying a Win7 box, but Id like to try more before that.

    Can some expert here help me ?

    Hello Evandro, and welcome to Vista Forums.

    If you have not already, then you might see if this may help. I would recommend to backup anything that you do not want to lose first to be safe though.

    Hello, Brink. Thanks for you quick reply.

    In fact, I already tried that (after clone my entire HD into another with easeus) . No luck
