Crash recovery after updating Win7 x64

Not sure if it’s a problem of VirtualBox, but when trying to install Win7x64 SP1 Windows stuck with the following message:

Fatal error C0000034 applying update operation 282 of 117809 (_00000…)

This method helped!

This method works without Safe Mode, without backups, without System Restore, without DISM, and without a Windows 7 DVD repair disc.

01. Reboot your computer while it’s starting up.

10. Now in Notepad, go to C:\Windows\winsxs\ (or whichever drive Windows is installed on)

11. In that folder, find pending.xml and make a copy of it

12. Now open the original pending.xml (it will load really slow because the file is huge)

13. Press CNTRL+F and search for the following exactly: 0000000000000000.cdf-ms

14. Delete the following text (yours will be a little different):

Your PC might not have all 3 sections of code (, , ). Just make sure you delete section “Checkpoint” and whatever other sections have “000000000000000.cdf-ms”. They will be right next to eachother.

15. Save the file, close notepad, close command prompt, restart your computer.
