    Several updates failing with 0x800F0922


    Everything running fine till a few days ago, when all WU failed. Installed several updates manually & left with just a few that simply refuse to install; KB3008627, KB3003057, KB2976978 & KB3011780. They all seem to install fine, but during the reboot I get "Failure configuring Windows Updates", it undoes & restarts twice. Then WU says "pending restart".

    I've tried; W8.1 WU fixit, DISM restorehealth, SFC /scannow, removing Windows UEFI in the BIOS, reset permissions, full chkdsk, uninstalling all AV/MalWare software & numerous other things.

    I used Microsoft Support. They connected remotely & tried the same things. They then said they are seeing 0x800F0922 on systems where there is no "System Reserved". I installed W8.1 into an existing partition on my SSD (I realized the previous OS had a SR partition - but at the end of the drive...? So I now have 448Mb unallocated at the end of the SSD (C drive).

    MS said I needed to reinstall W8.1 - from scratch, deleting all partitions & creating new, which will then create a new SR partition. I'm not keen - since I have lots of apps, so it'll take an age.

    Is there a way to create the SR partition without reinstalling W8.1 completely? Will EasyBCD do it? If so, what options/how etc?

    I only have the 1 OS installed to C:WINDOWS. 1 Samsung 250Gb SSD. C is 238Gb; System, Boot, Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition.

    Apparently the 0x800F0922 error indicates insufficient space in the SR partition. Of course - I don't even have one.
