    Windows 8.1 - Update failed.


    Hello

    Yesterday I when I shut down my PC a lot of updates were installed. Later when I run it, configuration process last over 1hour and PC was restarted. After restart I got message, that my pc couldn't finished update installation and is undoing changes. This procces last many hours and message: "restarting" appear later. This meesage was over 5 hours on my screen, so I decided to restart it manually but and it is still undoing changes. How can I run my windows now? I have also ubuntu OS installed on another drive on my PC.

    If you need more detailed information, please let me know I will try as fast as possible to answer you.

    Regards
