Windows 7 KB3033929

This update won't install if Windows isn't directly booted, i.e. it needs to have Windows as active partition and a Windows MBR.

Fix , Windows 7 and openSUSE 11/12/13

Just for my info to a particular setup thats odd as openSUSE gets stuck in an extended partition, no need for chrooting to fix grub afterwards.

Mount Windows 7 ISO (x32 or x64) and extract boot.wim

Extract these from boot.wim (thanks for a post by SiliconChaos) and stick them on a USB stick windows can read.

\windows\system32\Bootrec.exe
\windows\system32\wer.dll
\windows\system32\en-US\Bootrec.exe.mui
\windows\system32\en-US\wer.dll.mui
  • boot openSUSE, note active partition with fdisk, 'sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda' - (sda4), the extended partition (ID 'f' aka W95 Ext'd)
  • set active partition with fdisk to windows boot partition (sda1), don't forget to write changes!
  • reboot - should boot directly into windows 7 (note update wont work yet)
  • Run 'Bootrec.exe /FixMbr' from files extracted earlier, it should say successful. (dont run bootrec.exe /fixboot as it will fail, hence setting active part above manually)

(This changes the first stage boot loader (MBR) code to Windows's.)

  • Do Windows updates which should now work and install KB3033929, then reboot.
  • boot any live linux distro, set original partition back active (sda4)
  • reboot, it should be back to grub (booting the boot loader) from extended partition.

Note, this only works because openSUSE installs the actual boot loader (VBR) on the extended partition rather than with the MBR (i.e. its on /dev/sda4 not /dev/sda) so it is happy still using the Windows MBR.(Normally you would need to put grub back)

Examples

As used in above
