Hello, I have recently gotten a WD Blue 500 GB SSD and installed Windows 7 professional on it. Before, I was booting from a 1 TB HDD, which I still have installed.

Every time I shut down, Windows attempts updates, but they fail when I boot the computer back up.

I've looked around and found solutions to similar problems, but none have worked for me so far.

Specs:
Motherboard - MSI Z97 Gaming 5
Graphics - MSI GeForce GTX 1060
Processor - intel Core i5-4460
HDD - Seagate 1TB
SSD - WD Blue 500GB

Thanks

Would help if you listed what you tried already so we are not repeating things

did you try this?
  1. Download the Windows Update Troubleshooter, and then select Open or Save in the pop-up window.
    Notes
    • If the pop-up doesn’t come up, you might have a pop-up blocker on. If you’re using Microsoft Edge, instructions for disabling the pop-up blocker are here. For Internet Explorer, instructions are here. If you are using a different browser or separate pop-up blocker, check the website of the browser or blocker’s manufacturer.
    • If you select Save, you need to go to the folder where the troubleshooter is downloaded to after the download is complete, and then double-click the WindowsUpdate.diagcab file to run the troubleshooter.
  2. Select Next and follow the steps in the wizard to find and fix problems with Windows Update .
