Windows Update fails with 8E5E03FA and 8E5E0442. (win64)

Sorry for my English.

I fought with this problem for two days. I have installed 6 times from difference copies Windows 2008 (64 bit) and always after installation is the same problem (E5E03FA and 8E5E0442).

I used copy education from MSDNAA and normal (regular) copy for company. (Polish version)

After installation "Windows Updated" reported me that it can't update OS. I found solution from Microsoft (for Vista) but this is something with Virtual Box. This problem is only when I install Windows 2008 (64 bit) on Virtual Box. And when I fixed 8E5E03FA I have next error 8E5E0442.

I google it, and I found that some person has the same problem (from China). I also tested Windows 2008 on Vmware and physical machine everything is OK.

Also, when there are Windows Updates outstanding during the shutdown process of the guest system, the shutdown process seems to hang. Windows Vista shows permanently logging off (Not okay).
