    Windows Update can't resume install


    Hi.
    When I'm download update on Windows Update, I'm stop download on 98%. I'm shutted down my Laptop. Tomorrow, when I want to resume, it can't resume. Stuck at "Preparing to Install", but there is not disk or network activity. The file I want to download and Install is "Intel Graphics driver" and "nVidia driver update". Anyone can help this?

    Intel automatic scan to update drivers: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/default.aspx?lang=eng

    NVIDIA driver to install - NVIDIA DRIVERS 296.17 Certified

    After installing those, go to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download and delete everything in there. Try Windows Update again.

    It's strange. When I'm tried to open Windows Update, suddenly that driver is gone, and I can download another update. Although I don't do anything, just want to tried one more. Maybe I download that driver later, because I have nVidia driver 295.76 and my internet speed is super duper low (see My system specs).
    Thanks for giving solution.

When resume fails (for instance at a power failure) on previous versions of windows 8 (before RTM), it would ask and retry again. This does not work anymore (although it allowed me to temporarily boot into live linux with my bios). Is there a setting that can change this? Thanks, JMV2009
