Just a update what I have been trying to get the vista 32 byte home premium desktop to get past the configuring updates stage 3 of 3. I can still use F8 but when I select safe mode or safe mode with prompts
It gos thru the set up like its going to go into one of any of the modes on F8 menu and then at the very end the window opens to same thing configuring stage 3 and its still at 0% updated. So I still have control of F10 & F2. So I 1st tried starting up in one of the other 2 boot up modes but the same thing comes up at the end still configuring stage 3 & still at 0%. So I did f2 and changed a few different ways to start up there but still can,t get past still trying to finish the updates I yet yesterday on the 2ed Tuesday of the month. All 9 updates installed good.I hope I have not lost all my things on the hard drive forever, I will be so upset if this vista can never start up normally again. Just to let U know my vista did not come with a install dvd or cd, so I can't reinstall vista and I'M don't know where my product key is to try and get a vista off one of those web sites that you can get vista ultra. I,m wondering why no one has given me any ideas to get past the 3ed stage so the vista will strat. Normally, I see there's a lot of views but no help, I'm wondering why no one has help me ??!! I hope some knows what to do. Thanks for any help?!.
