Updating to vista 64
Attempts to fix the problem seems to have made the problem worse. and it fixed a couple of things but didn't fix error code 0X80070057 4. Having the same problem and pursuing similar solutions with out success, I tried downloading the recommended update for my Vista Home Premium SP2 64 bit OS.
OS: Windows Vista 32 Bit Home Premium I am unable to install recent Windows Vista updates because the updater hangs at "Checking for updates". and "Most recent checks for updates" says "never" ... which I assume is the reason for the "never" labels mentioned above. I used file "Windows Update Agent30-x86.exe" with the /wuforce switch and ran it from a HDD not containing the OS. "Troubleshoot problems with installing updates" I ran the Fix It tool ... If not, you can try to download and install it manually: https:// Later you can enable it again if you want.) Edited by devilus, 22 April 2016 - AM.You would have to use a 64-bit disc with SP1 installed, or install without a key and then apply the key and do the activation after SP1 has been applied.Also I think Vista Ultimate and maybe Business are the only ones with both 32-bit and 64-bit discs in the box - the other versions just have the one disc for the version listed on the box.NOTE 1: If you wish to reuse the key which came with your system, you must install the same version (business, home, home premium) which came with your system. on the Dell Forums give him your service id and he'll send you the 64bit media free. I can only setup orders for customers in the Americas.NOTE 2: Windows Vista Ultimate has both 32Bit and 64Bit on the install DVD aparently JB If you live in the U. For customers in Euro or Asia Pacific, you must contact Dell Support for your country and tell them to look up DSN Document ID: 158098 (Operating System Changes and Operating System Swaps - Dell Global Policy).
