Is there any update on this error? It's still an issue 7 years later and the solutions posted by Nuccii don't seem to help me.

I'm running Windows 8.1. I can't upgrade to Windows 10, because I do work using 3rd party programs that don't play well with 10. Restore is NOT an option, because re-installing said 3rd party programs is prohibitive. Repair Windows 8.1 using a mounted ISO file (downloaded from MS website) fails (takes about an hour to try to update, fail, and then restore original settings). I have been working on this for 3 months! I have tried every thing I can find on the net. Everything I have tried either does not work (no change in problem, or shift between error codes 0x80073cf9 and 0x80070005) or will not execute at all with a whole new set of error codes. I am understandably very frustrated.

Can anyone help?
