If you have the errors above and you are trying to logon to your server it is pending for uninstalling the Service pack and stays there forever. What can you do ?

Well you can boot in safe mode or get the ownership of the pending.xml and rename it.

mm sounds easy connect to your server  \\servername\windows\winsxs\pending.xml

take ownership if you need and rename this file.  Poweroff your server and you can logon again.

Easy but your server is fucked up beyond any repair

Now you think you can start the setup again and yes you can but the next error is “ Wait for the Windows Modules Installer  “ ?

yes see where the pending.xml file is ? well it is not there anymore. Just poweroff the server start in safe mode and reboot.

But what now ? This server is fried I have not found a solution to fix this or to recreate this issue. Next week I’m in redmond and will ask the Team how to solve this.

The problem is the HKLM\components hive is still loaded in the register. and you can’t do a unload. So therefor any update will fail. I has not finished the update the machine thinks it is still pending

image well I tired another setup with out the auto reboot I do this manual image


Service Pack installation failed with error code 0x80070bc9. and Initiating changes for package KB976932. Current state is Partially Installed. Target state is Absent. Client id: SP Coordinater Engine.

Well this means I need to reboot the server.

So there is direct fix but you can use your server everything works but there is still a problem with this server.

hope this helps if I find a solution I will let you know.

  2. Just put buffers=40 in your config.sys and you will be fine.
    You should be able to run the setup again. 😉

    • Hi Sander,

      You are so right but you forget that I already set ” if error then auto resolve or if there is no fix fixit anyhow” in the boot.ini and loaded this in high memory. and give the boot.ini full access to microsoft BOB. but Thanks for sharing.
