    Updates cause boot-up failure

    Last night as I shutdown my computer the blue updates screen appeared, the one that says "Installing updates, 10%, 20%, ...Do not shut off your computer". That was strange since I always thought I was able to choose when to update.

    This morning my computer would not boot up. I used a USB recovery drive and system restore to get my computer running again. Since I wasn't doing anything unusual yesterday I am convinced it was an update.

    Now I have four updates awaiting restart to finish: KB4503327, KB4465065, KB4503308 (Flash Player), and KB4503327. The updates except for Flash Player are all 1809 x64-based systems.

    I looked online and found no way to install these four one at a time.

    Has anyone else run into this problem? What should I do to avoid a boot-up failure again?

    Confusing Disk Boot Failure

    Well, Brand new Harddrive the western digital se16 caviar 640. Had a clean install, and while installing drivers and programs after a couple restarts I am receiving disk boot failure. Not the first restart or the second. Each time that it has given me the failure was after installing updates. I've system restored to before installing the updates and it works fine. It's a large list of around 38 or so updates. Granted may be a fluke but anyone heard of this?

  3. After update computer boots to Bios screen

    Hi Denise,

    Automatic restart after an update may be caused by a hardware failure. As our initial troubleshooting step, we suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Press Windows and type "view advanced system settings".
    • Select View advanced system settings.
    • Under the Startup and Recovery section, click
    • Under System Failure, remove the check mark next to
      Automatically restart
      and click OK.
    • Restart your computer.

    Get back to us with the status of the issue.

    Confusing Disk Boot Failure

    I've had this happen to me when I was installing stuff on my board.. Go, update by update and install them.. don't go and let Vista just download and install.
