Mod Edit:  Split from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/533528/cant-boot-after-windows-update/ - Hamluis.



I had exactly the same problem - closed down and selected apply MS updates and when I booted up this morning - would not boot, or repair.  In safe mode it hung at exact same place classpnp.  Don't blame gf... no one interfered with my shut down or boot up.


any help here would be appreciated... any one have any thing from MS on latest updates? 

I will try to get the last update number I applied.. but it would have been the most recent W7 64bit - no SSD in my laptop.

Hello! I see your topic has been moved and no one is replying. Are you still having a problem?

You could try this.


1. Insert the Recovery/Install DVD into the computer

2. Boot off of the DVD. When you first start your computer, the first screen you see should give you the key combination to press to enter a 'multi-boot' menu. On Dell's this key is F12 but it varries by each manufacturer. Once you find it and are at the multiboot menu, choose to boot of CD/DVD

3. When prompted (after it has booted to the CD/DVD) choose "repair my computer" and enter the command prompt

4. Type C: (with colon) and press enter

5. Then type cd c:\windows\winsxs and press enter

6. Then type del pending.xml and press enter

7. Restart your computer


That should kill any pending updates.

PS I found this on the internet. Worthy a try!!!
