    Windows 8.1 just saying Please wait... not moving on


    Hello Eightforums,

    Yesterday when i went to bed my computer had an update which required for it to configure and i left it there while i went to bed. When i woke up this morning it was still there, i tried restarting my computer and getting access to the recovery partition, which is not possible. Please help me out!
