SharePoint 2010 only works properly in IE9, IE10, and IE11 when the compatibility meta tag is set to IE8. It does not support IE9/10/11 in their native rendering modes.

This errors also happens if you have done installation on wrong order. I have seen this issue if you have installed first sharepoint CU and then Foundation CU. it should be always first Foundation and then SP Servers update.

I had a similar issue when trying to bring an additional WFE server online.
The problem relates to the installation media. SharePoint including SP1 is missing something or has an issue which causes you to always be missing this hotfix. Instead use the non SP1 media and then install all the updates and it will work just dandy.
