Stuck In A Loop After Updates, Can't Get Into Windows OR Safe-mode

Aug 9, 2008

I believe I have a (Vista Ultimate x64 RC-1? Already has SP1) cd. I can install it fine. I can then install the correct drivers for my hardware. And all works well, until... I use windows updates and select the 'important' only updates. After that, I'm stuck in a boot-loop. And by boot-loop, I mean I can't get into windows OR safe-mode. I have done this 2 times so far. It definitely only happens when I run the updates (can work perfectly fine for days w/o the updates).It's like I'm just now allowed to have an updated version of Vista. I made a restore point prior to the updates, so I can get back to where I was, but I obviously can't run an outdated OS all the time.

Updates: Restart I Get A Message Saying 1 To 3 Updates

Mar 29, 2009

I have Windows Home Premium 64 Bit and every time I restart I get a message saying 1 to 3 updates ... I then see this message again on startup. I feel like something is wrong with the update system. I reinstalled Vista and disabled automatic updates. However, after a while I started to get the same problem. I have Office, Visual Studio, Messenger and a few Adobe products installed.

After Latest Auto Updates, Windows Wont Restart

Sep 30, 2008

the latest Vista updates were downloaded to my computer. I didn't restart my computer after the updates were downloaded. When I turned on my laptop this morning, the Startup Repair window comes up because windows failed to start. I've run the repair several times, and it's unable to repair. It lists the following

problem details:
Problem Event Name: StartupRepariV2
Problem Signature 01: AutoFailover
Problem Signature 02: 6.0.6000.163686.6.0.6001.1800
Problem Signature 03: 5
Problem Signature 04: 262148
Problem Signature 05: BadDriver
Problem Signature 06: BadDriver
Problem Signature 07: 0
Problem Signature 08: 3
Problem Signature 09: WrpRepair
Problem Signature 10: 10
OS Version: 6.0.6000.2.0.0.256.1
Local ID: 1033

So, I see that part (if not all) of the problem is bad drivers. Why is this so and how can I fix it? I have a Gateway M-Series laptop (about 10 months old).

Updates Not Install

Dec 22, 2007

I have recently installed vista ultimate on my new pc, i did it as an upgrade from xp. Everything works fine and the pc is well up for vista showing a 4.9 in the experience index. The problem i have is that vista has downloaded 33 updates and they will not install, when i click the start button, then the install/ shutdown button it runs through the installing procedure for about 20 minutes than shuts down, when i next reboot the system it says "configuring updates" runs like this for about 20mins then starts as normal. When i check the installed updates, they all show as failed.

Can't Install Updates

Nov 1, 2009

I noticed that several weeks ago Microsoft changed the old good Updater to the new buggy one. Sometimes I cannot install updates because I cannot select them! See the screenshots. Week ago my hard drive died, so I bought new and reinstalled everything. Fresh system with old Updater updated well, but then new updater installed, and bug returned. I cannot fix by myself because I have no source code of Updater (Microsoft does not publish source code of their products for unknown reason).

Repair Install: Windows Updates Won

May 23, 2009

I have Vista Home Premium 32-bit, on Dell Inspiron 6400. After a repair install, I now have two problems: - Although there are 75 Windows Updates in the list, I have tried several times over the last two days to install these. So far, only a few are marked "Successful". The great majority are marked "Failed". - There is no SP1 available in the list of updates.

Here is the history:

- My laptop was pre-loaded with Vista (no SP1). The OEM DVD was also SP0.
- I installed SP1 when it became available.
- A few days ago, I neede to do a repair install. So I uninstalled SP1, and did a repair install as specified in Brink's tutorial:
Repair Install For Vista
- As far as I know, the repair completed successfully. There were no "Files discarded by Windows Upgrade" (Maybe this is important!). I was not asked for my product key, or asked to activate Vista.
- Immediately after the repair, I launched Windows Update, and found the two problems noted above.

BTW: To the best of my knowledge, my laptop is working fine. The minor glitches that prompted the repair install have disappeare.

Why Install Updates, Office 2003 SP1?

Feb 6, 2009

A few minutes ago, a message popped up in the bottom right corner telling me to install Windows updates. I checked and found that Windows wants me to install between 386 and 423 MB of updates -- damn, that's about as much stuff as I have on my HD to start with. These are the updates listed:

-- Office 2003 SP1 -- but I don't run Office 2003 or any components thereof.

-- Microsoft .NET Framework SP1 and Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update -- What is this?

-- 2007 Office SP1 -- Maybe I could use this one as I am running Office 2007.

Download And Install Updates: Crashes

Mar 23, 2008

ever since I allowed my new computer (6 mos. old, and running Vista) to download and install the updates available Feb. 12, it has been a horror show. My computer is crashing at least once a day. I've tried going back to various previous restore points, but then, after the "restore process", up pops the message "System retore did not complete successfully. Your computer's system files and settings were not changed. Details: An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. ". In addition I can no longer use task bar tabs in Wordperfect, to, for example change margins. If I do, up on the screen flashes a message saying that I've committed an error, then terminates my word processing screen. Even if I bring up a letter I typed ayear ago and try to change anything, Vista interjects and closes the application.

If so, I have windows 32 bit os and it is set to install automatically at 3 am, but my compuer is always asleep then, but when I wake it up in the am, I used to get a windows symbol at the bottom right telling me there is an update avail.!

Windows Updates Genuine Install

Nov 18, 2009

I have configured my computer to automatically install Windows Important and Recommended Updates. Most Important and Recommended updates are installed automatically. Occasionally when I check Windows Update I get a message that an important update is available and I guess I would have to manually install it. For example, now important update Office Genuine Advantage Notifications is available for me to install. Why are most Windows important updates automatically installed and an occasional Windows important update is made available for me to manually install?

Windows Update Problems - Cannot Install SP1 And Various Other Updates

Jun 18, 2008

I have had many update problems with windows update (including windows vista sp1) due to "Code 80070246." I have tried many things (not including reinstalling OS)...including
Stop error when you try to download updates from Windows Update on a computer that is running Windows Vista: "0x80070246"

However when i tried following those steps, i got to step 6 and the Windows AIK Command Prompt said it "cannot find the path specified." I'm pretty sure i have the same error as that one though, meaning a corrupted GlobalInstallOrder.xml file. I don't think it can find that file because I'm using a 64-bit system. Should i try doing the same thing as the microsoft site except replace Windowswinsxsx86_microsoft-windows-servicingstack_31bf3856ad364e35_6.0.6000.16386_none_07289f4cca5f6990 with Windowswinsxsamd64_microsoft-windows-servicingstack_31bf3856ad364e35_6.0.6000.16386_none_63473ad082bcdac6 or do i have to do something else?

Maybe the problem isn't with GlobalInstallOrder.xml? I'm not really sure what to do.

Windows Installer Issue - Cannot Install Updates

Updates Automatically Install Service Pack 1

Apr 15, 2008

I have two computers running Vista Business. I have them both set up to tell me about updates but not to automatically install them. So, why is one computer telling me that Service Pack 1 is available but the other is not?

In fact, on the one that not telling me SP1 is available, I told it to check for updates and it still did not tell me about SP1 (it said that everything is all up to date). Is there some legitimate reason for this or is this just normal operating procedure? And, BTW, I'm very hesitant to install SP1 of either computer.

Updates To Install: Desktop Started To Load And Froze There

Dec 28, 2008

About six weeks ago I had an issue with my computer that seems to be related to an update downloaded at that time. I had Automatic Update set to download and install updates automatically and after one such update, the computer instructed me to restart which I did. All went well until I logged in. The log in screen came up, I logged in and hit enter and the desktop started to load...and froze there. I restarted in safe mode and system restore failed. I called Dell and they walked me through diagnostics until they were fairly sure that it was not a hardware problem. I finally got it to reboot from the Windows disk that came with the computer, but the problem persisted. No error message, no lights, no beeps. Just frozen at the same place at the same time. In addition, each time I had to hold the power button down to reboot, my RAID array would have to 're-verify' the data on both disks which would take about 4 hours before I could even think of doing anything with the box.

Finally Dell had me restore the system from a partition on my hard drive which reset the computer to how it was from the factory... It worked fine till I downloaded the updates again. The last bunch included a Vista security update and a bunch of Office updates. I had to Factory Image reinstall again. I have now shut off my Auto Update. It tells me that there are updates to download, but I have not done any of them in the last month........

I just did it now and it said "done, now we need to restart" I click restart, it boots up and it STILL says I need to update! Could it be because, this computer ALSO has Microsoft Office 2003? If Office 2003 the problem, or is my luck just crap bad nowadays?

Custom Installation Disc: Windows Updates Install Automatically

Mar 26, 2008

I'm wondering if there is a simple way to take your Vista Installation Disc and use it to create a custom installation disc that also includes updated drivers and updated hotfixes. The goal would be that during a clean install, those updated drivers and Windows Updates are installed automatically.

For a specific example, I use a USB Wireless Adapter. If I could create a custom windows disc that includes those drivers, then I my USB Wireless Adapter would be recognized and I could therefore allow Windows to connect to the Internet during Setup to see if there are any hotfixes and updates.

Windows Failed To Start: Shutdown And Install Updates In Vista

Oct 6, 2009

last night before bed I clicked shutdown and install updates in Vista. I woke up this morning and my computer will not turn on. It leads me to this: Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.

2. Choose your language settings, and then click "next"

3. Click "repair your computer"

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assisance.

File: BootBCD

Status: 0xc000000f

Info: An error occured while attempting to read the boot configuration data.

problem I have is that I do not have vista installation dvd. I am currently studying abroad in Rome and will take more time than I have to receive the dvd in the mail. None of my friends here have one either, but they all have the same make and model computer that I do. Is it possible for one of them create a installation dvd that I could use? Or could they make a recovery disc that could as least get me to the system recovery options screen?

System Restore Applet Fails To Open / Windows Updates Download But Fail To Install

Jul 29, 2009

A friend's Vista SP1 PC is failing to install Windows Updates and also some other updates such as those for Itunes. The symptom is that the updates get downloaded but the installation phase never finishes (he's left it for 12 hours!). In the case of the Windows Updates, there are several updates that try to install themselves as the PC is shutdown or even restarted, but the message "Installing 1 of 6" never advances: the only recourse is to switch the PC off.

As I was looking at the PC, I noticed one thing which may have a bearing on this and may even be the cause: the System Restore applet (windowssystem32 strui.exe) fails to run. It displays an initial User Account Control window but the "Restore System Files and Settings - choose a restore point" window never appears. No error message is displayed and there are no entries in any of the Event Log logs.

It occurred to me that if System Restore is buggered, this might prevent any updates working if the first thing they try to do is to create a restore point before installation begins. I can't find any reference to System Restore failing to open its initial Window - I've looked on support.microsoft.com and done a general Google search for "Vista System Restore fails". All the info seems to describe possible problems if you get slightly further and select a restore point which then fails to install properly.

Loop Trying To Grant For Permission

Nothing happens when I hit edit, so I can't change anything back. Nothing happens when I hit cancel. So, my only option is to hit ok, but this gives me the attached error messages.

Should I use task manager to end the task? What are the dangers of "an inconsistent state" as displayed in the last error screen? Is there a utility I can use to set the ownership and permissions back to there original status?

Went into safe mode.....would not let me run them there. I downloaded CCleaner in safe mode and ran the cleaner.(not registry cleaner) Now it's stuck in a reboot loop. What can I do to get it back to at least booting? Never seen this before. This is XP media center edition When I first got there it was popping up "my documents" from a user who didn't even use the computer about every 5 minutes.

Vista X64 Update Loop At Startup

Mar 26, 2009

My laptop, Toshiba model M305D, has been down about 6 days. I went to microsoft technical, put in a request but got no reply. This is the first problem I've had since buying the laptop new August, 2008. It has an AMD 64 bit processor and runs Vista home premium 64 bit. It has been kept up-to-date with windows update.

THE PROBLEM: The last time it was receiving updates it became stuck in a loop. It was processing update stage 3 of 3 at the 96% complete point when it restarted the computer to complete installation. Only, it keeps restarting and going through this update install process. It does this over and over.

I used the F8 on startup method to get to a help screen hoping to get into the safe mode. I got to the help screen.

The computer will not go into the "safe mode" using any of the choices presented on this screen, but instead goes right back to update screens described above when one of the choices is selected. I had hoped to get access to restore but could not.

How can I get past this to get back up and running?

Sysprep Create Reboot Loop

I have created a Vista Enterprise x86 image several times and tried tosysprep it. I used the 'sysprep /oobe /generalize' command. When thecomputer boots after I have syspreped it I get a black screen that says'Setting up your computer' or somthing similar. It then displays thevista background and says 'Please wait while Windows continues settingup your computer'. The machine then reboots and the green loading bar shows for a second and reboots. The machine is then stuck in a reboot loop. Not even safe mode or Last known good config will let the machineboot.lso I had several days of pain trying to get the vista to sysprep at all. My vLite SP! slipstreamed disc didn't allow syspreping and erroredout. I had to install vista and manually install the SP1.

Blue Screen In Continuous Loop

May 8, 2008

I have already posted to the "Help" boards Toshiba sends their customers to for
assistance, but feel there will more than likely be a faster reply (let alone a reply period) related directly to my need. Here is the situation: Am writing concerning my Toshiba laptop, Satellite A135-S4527, currently running with Vista Home Premium. Have had previous short bouts with blue screen errors, but could always find the fix quickly and get back to normal. Not this time, can't even get to Windows for any length of time beyond (literally) seconds before it repeats the cycle of "Did not shut down correctly ... choose a mode" ad infinitum like some horrible computer version of "Groundhog's Day."

I was in the midst of finishing the installation of the latest Vista update, and had also been installing "Alcohol 120" when the blue screen appeared with the following message [thank heavens for digital cameras since this flashes and is gone in a flash]: "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:........
