  1. Failed update, now Windows won't load.


    Good day all, I'm running Windows 10 Home 64 bit (Don't know the exact version number as I don't have access to Windows ATM) I was informed I needed to do the most recent update, so I attempted to do so, but when I returned to my computer it was stuck at something like 53%. I knew this could be just taking a while so I waited a couple of hours but it didn't move. So I attempted to CTRL-ALT-DEL but that didn't work either. I tried tapping the power button once quickly to see if I could do a soft reset but to no avail. So, with no other options open to me I did a hard reset, held the power key until the PC shut down and then turned it back on. When I did my PC returned back into Windows and I redid the update and everything worked fine. However then I was told I needed to do another update, so I did that this morning. Now when I try to boot the first screen for my motherboard says something like "attempting auto repair" and then I get to a windows installer type screen giving me options to continue to Windows 10 (which just brings me back to this same screen) use a DVD or USB, trouble shoot and so on. I've tried all the options there but to no avail. And I don't have a system recovery or image to revert back to. (Dumb, I know.) Next I tried creating a Windows 10 recovery USB on my laptop. But, when I tried to boot into it I got a message saying that there had been a failed update and I can either try to continue it (which doesn't work) or I can do a fresh install of Windows 10. So, my situation now is I'm using my PC with a Ubuntu live USB. I have the option of wiping the drive and reinstalling, but I'd like to exhaust all my options because obviously I'd like to avoid having to reinstall all of my programs if I can help it. Thank you all very kindly for your time.

    :)

    Failed update, now Windows won't load.

    Windows Updates failed to instal

    I'm not sure how differant XP media center Edition is but you could clear the history \ cache if these folders are there.

    Step 1 Register DLL files.

    =================

    By trying this step, we can check if the update engines are working properly.



    1. Close all instances of Internet Explorer.

    2. Click Start and Run, type "Regsvr32 atl.dll" (without quotes) in the Open box and click OK.



    Note: There is a space between regsvr32 and atl.dll



    3. Similarly, one by one, register the files listed below:



    Regsvr32 msxml3.dll

    Regsvr32 wuapi.dll

    Regsvr32 wuaueng.dll

    Regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll

    Regsvr32 wups2.dll

    Regsvr32 wucltui.dll

    Regsvr32 wups.dll

    Regsvr32 wuweb.dll

    Regsvr32 qmgr.dll

    Regsvr32 qmgrprxy.dll

    Regsvr32 jscript.dll



    Note: If you encounter errors while registering any of these files then skip that file and continue with the next one.



    If the issue persists, let's move on to the steps below to verify Windows Update services and temporary folders.



    Step 2 Verify the relevant Windows Update services.

    =========================================

    1. Click Start->Run, type "services.msc" (without quotation marks) in the open box and click OK.

    2. Double click the service "Automatic Updates".

    3. Click on the Log On tab, please ensure the option "Local System account" is selected and the option "Allow service to interact with desktop" is unchecked.

    4. Check if this service has been enabled on the listed Hardware Profile. If not, please click the Enable button to enable it.

    5. Click on the tab "General "; make sure the "Startup Type" is "Automatic" or "Manual". Then please click the button "Stop" under "Service Status" to stop the service.

    6. Then please click the button "Start" under "Service Status" to start the service.

    7. Please repeat the above steps with the other services:



    Background Intelligent Transfer Service

    Event Log

    Remote Procedure Call (RPC)



    Note: Event log service is enabled on all of the hardware profiles; this service does not have an option to enable or disable on certain hardware profile.



    If it still does not help, let's proceed to step 3.



    Step 3 Reload the Update temporary folders.

    ===================================

    One possible cause is that the temporary folder for Windows Update is containing corrupted files. Let's erase all the files there to get the system clean.



    1. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following command in the opened window.



    Net stop WuAuServ



    2. Click Start, Run, type: %windir% and press Enter.

    3. In the opened folder, rename the folder SoftwareDistribution to Sdold.

    4. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following command in the opened window.



    Net start WuAuServ



    Please test the Windows Update website and let me know the result. If the issue persists, to clarify the issue and provide more accurate troubleshooting steps, please assist me in collecting the following information.
