    Windows AU Update causing boot loop


    Hi All,

    Having an issue updating a laptop. this is a laptop loaded with a custom image which i deploy via SCCM. The image is currently on build 1511, so the update im doing is from 1511 to 1607.

    The way im updating, is using the Windows 10 update tool:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...setting_client

    Before i go on to explain, i should tell you, i can re-image and replicate this issue over and over, so its probably an issue somewhere down the line with the the image, but the update tool for some reason still mentions the laptop is ready for the upgrade. (oh and the image, that i know of to date, has no issue, and all prior windows updates are applied)

    The Issue:
    I download the aforementioned tool, it goes through its motions of advising whether my laptop is compatible, once it decides its fine it downloads the update (normal behavior). It then proceed to prompt me my laptop will restart in order to install the upgrade. No issue there, it press "Restart"and it goes through the motion of installing it.
    It all goes well, rebooting a few times (again, normal behavior) HOWEVER, once it reaches 99% (every time) it reboots and then gets stuck in a loop.
    UEFI --> Windows boot ( so this screen http://i.stack.imgur.com/hvUhO.png)--> Reboot --> UEFI --> Windows Manager --> Reboot etc etc etc......loop loop loop
    It does this eternally (or at least, my patience was limited to 3 hours)
    As i said before, i can then reimage my machine via a PXE boot, and apply the upgrade again and the SAME thing happens. At the SAME percent (damn that last 1% seemingly crucial boot file!).


    TS Tried:
    disabled secure boot
    attempted to boot from UEFI and Uefi/Legacy bios mode
    Tried Windows repair media ( each time, it was not able to be rapaired)
    Also tried manually repairing boot files from the CMD using the repair media.


    I could i suppose install a fresh build, but thats not the point. I need this in place upgrade method to work.

    Anybody got any ideas? Tried contacting Microsoft and quit after their support agent asked me if they could remote into it to assist me.

    P.S Model is Lenovo t460s,

    Cheers

    :)

    Computer in reboot loop after update

    This doesn't solve the problem. The update causes my computer to go into a reboot loop so it's not able to do a clean boot as it doesn't boot back into the OS at all.

    I'm using windows 10 home, and do not have the option to defer upgrades.

    Hiding updates doesn't help as Microsoft forces the updates to install and reboot on my system continually causing my computer to reboot into a reboot loop and not work at all. This is an in issue with the MS update not installing properly.

    What do I have to do to ensure the update installs properly without it causing a reboot loop? or how do I disable the 1709 update entirely because hiding it doesn't work when Microsoft forces it on my machine.
