Well it looks like my laptop is corrupted. While running on battery Microsoft update started and now it constantly rebooting for at least a half hour. What was in their heads to start this massive update on a machine was going to crash due to battery charge. Is there a way out of this loop?

should try to get into the repair windows mode and see if you can restore to a system restore.

 

You need to shutdown/force reboot the machine while it tries to load windows.

No restore points but when selecting repair two OS options were displayed. One would not work, the other repaired after I backed out an operating system upgrade it booted normally.

are you sure it's rebooting because of battery dying, or may be it's trying to fix itself.   windows can take up to 24hrs to undo an update it started and failed doing.   I would just let it go and do its thing and see if it fixes itself.

 

unless you are 100% sure its caught in a loop.

Personally, I think taking that long to restore an OS is ridiculous. If that happened to me I would force a shut down and restore a backup image but unfortunately not many people do disk image backups.

I have never experienced anything near to 24 hours to undo a failed update, including a major feature update, under Windows 10.

 

It is surprising that the OS would not detect that a laptop was operating on battery power before actually restarting for an update (though I can find nothing official that shows it would be intelligent about this).

So it's fixed now?
