    Eight will not update after install


    I am having serious issues. I installed windows 8 pro and here are the issues I am having.

    Every time I install (Pro Disk) when it finishes and restats, it goes right back to the beginning of the install
    Once I can get it installed, once the first screen spins, it stays black, but if I sleep and wake it, it goes right to the sign in screen-weird.

    Then, it says no updates have been searched or ever installed, when I search I get the Error Code 80248007 cannot update.


    Please help!

    I get right in after I sleep/wake (from the black screen) and can do everything perfectly, but I shouldn't have to sleep and wake, it is not updating either!

    When the computer loads & actually works, In Administrator command prompt Run :

    sfc /scannow

    Click image for larger version

    When it gets done Run in Administrator command prompt :

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth


    Click image for larger version

    After DISM gets done REBOOT.

    Then run sfc /scannow AGAIN.

    Post back with results please.

    As for Updating, make sure Windows Modules Installer is set to Manual.

    To get to Services open Run & type in : services.msc & click OK.

    Are you upgrading a Windows 7 install, or doing a clean install?

    It is still doing it. I emphasize though, I am on the laptop now, but after the initial spin up, nothing happens, I have to sleep it then wake it, and everything is fine. What in the world is going on?

    Ok, thinkI found the issue. The IC data path test failed. I believe that means the motherboard is bad. Probably not a cheap fix
