Latest “Patch Tuesday” – errors installing update

Latest “Patch Tuesday” (May 13th, 2014) has brought us a pack of updates (you can read all the details about them here and here), but one of them was making trouble for me. The update I’m talking about is called “Security Update for Windows Server 2012 R2 (KB2920189)”. You can read more about this update in KB2920189.

I’ve tried to install it on a number of my Hyper-V virtual machines (Generation 2), but the update keeps failing with error 800F0922:

ISSUE:
This error and its cause is described in
KB2962824. In short, this update expects that the BitLocker feature is installed (not enabled or used, but installed) – in my case, the problem was Secure Boot, which is enabled by default on Generation 2 virtual machines.

RESOLUTION/WORKAROUND:
You can install the BitLocker feature on your Windows Server 2012 R2 servers before installing this update, or you can switch the Secure Boot off, install the update and switch it back on (I’ve decided to do the latter).

After switching the Secure Boot off, installing the update and switching it on again, the update installed successfully:

Have fun!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I wish that you spend the holiday season with your families and loved ones, 'offline' if possible. I'll be back in 2014 with more technical posts, and with more than ever 'consistent publishing schedule', I hope. 🙂

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, all!
