    Reboot loop during Preparing to configure Windows #2


    I'm helping a colleague, he's got a problem with his data.
    when he explain the problem so I thought it stuck in a loop, so thought it would be easy problems.

    but no ...
    He says the last thing the computer did was a windows updated and the day after did not start,

    when i start it so comes the logo forward "VI10" and a ladning circle below for a 1min or 2.
    then you hear the fan is increasing and it is reading something, then it jumps to a black screen for 1-2 minutes then comes "Preparing to configure Windows".

    I let it stand for six hours before I turned it off and start looking try start it in safe mode

    have used boot setup before on XP and W7 so know how it looks / works
    but I can not access it anywhere, I read somewhere you could force it with F8 but do not work

    You might have something that might work ??

    Oh also try to bot with cd = same shit

    it is a ::
    Sony VA10
    intel inside Core i5

    A common error, which could be easily resolved by using DISM to remove all pending updates, it's just a couple of minutes work, read this article

    If after that you're still experiencing problems, then try to use a system restore point from some days ago.

Windows 8.1, failed boot, preparing automatic repair loop
Acer Aspire V5 is the PC I am using. I turn it on, the boot fails and the pc restarts. Then begins an automatic repair, which crashes and the PC turns off. It is a loop I cannot get out of. How do I fix this? I don't have a Windows 8 Disc or anything like that.
