I couldn’t agree more!!! My memory might be just a tad better than yours though. In a nutshell, you are running build 6003 because you took Microsoft’s advice instead of listening to this forum’s naysayers. (The ironic part is that you are nevertheless one of this forum’s naysayers.) Didn’t you have to buy a new hard drive to finally solve your MBR problem? What if it was a hardware problem that had nothing to do with Server 2008 updates? I also recall that you found PUPs on your previous installation shortly before you concluded post hoc that Server 2008 updates were the cause of your problems.Hey, everything is working. If it's ain't broke...
Hi SIW2:...wsusoffline gives the impression that it will update the installation. Sadly, that doesn't seem to be the case.
At this point I have no idea if this ESR v11.9.1 "Community Edition" posted on GitLab actually behaves differently than the latest "official" ESR v11.9.1 build (rel. 12-Mar-2020) at WSUS Offline Update - Update Microsoft Windows and Office without an Internet connection or why this "Community Edition" was even created."An adjusted version of wsusoffline 12.0 and 11.9.1 ESR, which get current updates for their static definitions, is available here:
12.0 -> https://gitlab.com/wsusoffline/wsusoffline/-/releases/12.0_CommunityEdition
11.9.1 ESR -> 11.9.1esr_CommunityEdition · [email protected] / WSUS Offline Update
This version ist equal to the official wsusoffline-builds, exept for it downloading its static definitions from GitLab instead of wsusoffline.net..."
Hi SIW2:It is 4 August and these downloads still seem to be working
Hello, I re-installed everything, did the updates, but after SP2, they asked to install Windows Updates Agent 7.6.7600.256 After that, I wasn't able to update again (updates was running for 2 days without any results) Still looking fo a solution to get this dinosaur every vista's updates till...www.vistax64.com
Much depends on how long Microsoft permits activation for legacy versions of Windows that are no longer served by Windows Update. (We await the OP’s next post in Error Code 0x80072F8F when trying to activate Windows Vista in that regard.) For those with existing Vista installations, an image or better yet a clone of the system drive has long been my recommendation.Looks like the simplest thing is to use installation media that has already been updated.
Or maybe somebody will make an update pack.
