    ·        What is the service pack installed on your computer?

    Windows Update will remind you if you have to restart your PC to continue the installation of an update and you give the option to "reboot now" or will give you the option to postpone the restart. If you are away from your PC for a long period of time, you can see that it automatically restarts your PC. Windows does to make sure all the latest security and other updates are applied in a timely, to help keep your PC safer with little effort for you.

    If you are a system administrator and you want to control restart behavior, you can use Group Policy to avoid any automatic restart every time the administrator is connected.

  • The update of Windows 10 1511 reboot loop Bootcamp BSOD ACPI. SYS

    It is a copy of my thread to as I was asked to post here by the Microsoft Support Engineer.


    Friday night, I went to bed with a working machine. I had a late 2013 Mac Pro BootCamp running with a Windows 10 Pro installed, the Build version before 1511.

    On Saturday morning, I woke up to my PC restart itself over and over again. It seems that Windows Update has decided to put a new version of Windows 10 on my machine without my knowledge. I discovered this after restoring an acronis backup (which took a few hours because of the number of incremental backups)

    Occasionally (about 1 in 20 restarts) it would blue screen with an error:


    But the rest of the time he would just start, flash a window for a millisecond that says (I think) winlaunch.exe, then restart.

    I tried a lot of things to sort it, including:

    (1) restore from a backup, acronis to Friday morning, running sfc/scannow, and then runs the update

    (2) the creation of a recovery USB, enter the console, change the boot to legacy method, so I can F8, then goes into all security modes and mode of illegal product, but I can find where windows 10 now puts the boot log

    (3) restored from acronis, switched to mac, created a new bootcamp drivers usb, switched to windows and run the option 'fix drivers' before performing the update.

    Ntbtlog.txt is not anywhere on the partition. I ran a dir /s > a.txt then open this a.txt in Notepad and searched him.

    I don't know where to go from here. I can acronis restore of a windows 10 work machine the morning before installing mandatory 1511. I don't know how to delay the update no more, I noted during a restore I had delay on updates that are why it has arisen just now.

    I do not know how to find where this BSOD ACPI.sys will come (even if it happens so rarely) or this that its trying to load just before it crashes (so I can try to delete the driver etc. by the front restored windows to upgrade)

    I guess the widowed causes 10 to do a restore, then the restore fails.

    Overall, I get at the end of my wits with this, to go a completely Windows 10 installation work Friday to more than two wasted days, restore backups, try again, rinse and repeat. It's now Monday morning and I am posting this as a ditch last attempt to solve the problem, your help would be appreciated.

    If you need more information please let me know the location of the files, etc, or their names and I will do my best to have copies available for you.

    I will now restore the backup again, uninstall loading of drivers, and then try the update of windows for the 4th or 5th time.

    Thanks in advance,


    Woo Hoo, I've solved the problem!

    I uninstalled the drivers of graphics from AMD (with AMD Driver Cleaner) and Arcronis True Image Home 2013 at the same time, then let Windows Update run its course. Now I have a machine with Windows Version 1511 10!

    It took me 4 days of downtime...

    I hope this helps someone else.

  • Computer goes to a loop of reboot after Windows update

    After a complete restoration of the PC, tried to install the update to windows, my computer goes to a restart and stuck loop installation of updates stage 3 of 3 so went ahead and made a factory again restore but the windows updates causing the problem, it is stuck in a reboot loop suggestions. Is it because of damaged hard drive files?

    Perform a restart from a hard stop. Press the f8 key until you get to the screen asking questions on safe mode. Select repair. Then, you should find a system restore option. Select it. Spend until it gives you a choice of dates, then select a date before the update. This worked like a charm and does not lose any data. Turn off your automatic installation of updates option.

  • Reboot loop after the configuration of the Windows updates

    original title: configuration to update windows, remains at 0% then restarts vista, now stuck in an endless loop, I can't break out of.

    my system is set up as a dual boot... my being main vista home...

    the other day I did my update systematic of windows Vista, everything went well...

    you had to do a reboot to complete the updates. everything went as usual...

    Therefore, curiosity had me look at the optional updates available on the update page, one of them being a graphic driver for my card, I chose that and 2 other small...

    to restart, I received the message "update configuration"...

    Updates 1 & 2 set up, but on the update 3 of 3, he remained on 0% complete... after a minute or 2, just rebooted system... I thought "seems normal.

    However, the reboot, it is came with, configuration of update 3/3, stayed on 0%, then restarted once more...

    It will not be completed, it maintains simply browse the updated 3/restart cycle configuration...

    I tried to boot from a system medion recovery disk, I tried checking a problem to statup, he reported none found...

    I tried a system restore, it had only one, just before the updates, but on trials, all just by me again at the beginning of the update configuration 1 part 3, ending with the update 3 do a repeat of the cycle above...

    I tried a chkdsk /f /r on my vista to boot from my recovery disc... it took forever because it was a 1000 GB drive, but no problem detected...

    is there any way I can get out of this endless configure update/restart loop as I don't want to do a complete vista reinstall from my recovery disc

    Once you have started with the Vista DVD / disque disk recovery, select Service Options, and then select command prompt (no admin password needed in this way)

    Now type:

    C: (or any directory of your system files are located)

    CD windows/winsxs
    del pending.xml

    Then close and restart.  I hope that the problem will be solved.

  • Tried to update in Windows Vista Home Premium, stuck in the "Configuring updates" and "reboot" loop 11/05/2011

    Hello! I have a portable M-6752 Gateway under Vista Home Premium.  It was perfectly functional this morning 11/05/2011.  Then I noticed the sign (of exclamation in a circle) who said the new updates.  So I started the update and thought nothing of it.  It was until an hour later and I realize that my laptop was still updated.

    Right now I am stuck in a loop between "Configuring updates: stage 3 of 3-0% complete.»  Do not turn off your computer' and auto restart.
    I tried to restart in 'safe mode' and 'safe mode with network.  These attempts did not help.  I'm still stuck in the loop and my laptop is overheating.  The only thing I could do was to be able to.  Fact that several times already.
    Fortunately, I have another laptop and is able to ask for help.  Can someone help me?  I'm NOT a technical person.  Thank you.

    Thank you, but my laptop WAS running Service Pack 2 when this problem happened.  It has been resolved.  For anyone having this problem, here is my experience and solution.

    When I found myself stuck in a loop and my laptop keeps restarting without giving an error message, it began to overheat.  I turned off.  When I turned on it again the screen "Advanced Boot Options" appeared.  I chose 'Safe Mode'.  Then, I went to "Configuring updates...". ».  Machine started himself reboot again.  It happened a few times.  Finally I had to turn the phone off again.  All of a sudden when I turned on again, the "Windows Error Recovery" screen comes on.  There is a choice, 'Launch Startup Repair'.  I chose this.  Machine asked me if it is allowed to create restore point.  Of course.  Then I GOT!  I was saved by Windows self-diagnosis program.
    If you are not familiar with the screens that I mentioned, please search 'screen name' and the word 'image' as a whole.  You will see what these screens look like.
    Now I realize there is another way to reach the Startup Repair.  When you turn on again, press the F8 key several times.  Which will bring you to the early Startup Options screen.  On advance Boot Options, there is a choice 'repair your computer', scroll down to this choice, press ENTER.
    Turning off my machine during the restart is another way to force the "early start Options" screen appears.
    I read that some do not have the "Repair your computer" option according to your PC in the screen «In advance Startup Options»  You will need to know how to get to the "Windows Error Recovery" screen.
    As a last resort, you can restart Vista recovery disk.  Many manufacturers do not understand that when they send the PC for you.  However, it is available for download for free on the internet.  You can download and make your own within 30 minutes.  I hope this helps!
  • Update Windows Reboot Loop

    Recently, I get these pop-ups Windows Update indicating that I have to restart my computer.  I checked to see what updates are being installed, but Windows Update won't disclose.  I spoke with my system administrator, and we discovered that an update KB3033929 was the culprit.  From what we have studied, it was supposed to be update KB3035131 installed before KB3033929... KB3035131 never installed while KB3033929 was.

    I went and removed Windows Update KB3033929 and restarted.  When I open Windows Update, my intention was to manually install the update KB3035131 first, and then reinstall KB3033929 according to the Security Bulletin (which I believe you have published).  However, I performed the following tasks in Windows Update with the respective results:

    • Click on "Check for updates": Windows Update displays the window "Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because you must first restart the computer so that a previous installation can be completed."
    • Clicking on the link 'View update history': no display update history.
      • Click on the link "Installed updates" and sought KB3033929... confirmed it has been deleted.
    • Final check of updates: yesterday (22/12/2015) at 14:19
    • Updates have been installed: 12 17, 2015 at 08:50 (down).  View update history (which I already did in the previous step).

    There is another thing that causes this infinite loop?  I thought that getting rid of the KB3033929 update would solve the problem... it didn't.  Please indicate how I can install updates again without having to restart again and again and again.  It is disturbing for my ability to get my things done on the job.  I need to be able to specifically support KB3035131 update successfully before you reinstall KB3033929 as directed by your security Bulletin.

    I thank very you much for your attention to this issue.


    John J. Bottiger

    UPDATE: I had an online chat with a Microsoft representative who was very helpful.  She told me that the next step was to do the following (from a link, she sent me... the solution was provided by "kieferschild"):

    • Click / tap on the Start button and type "regedit" in the search box to launch the Registry Editor tool.
    • In the left pane with the directory tree, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE-> software-> Microsoft-> Windows-> CurrentVersion->->-> RebootRequired AutoUpdate WindowsUpdate
      • If this key is displayed (i.e., not deleted, data displayed when you select this key), then that indicates that it is corrupted as Windows Update is supposed to automatically remove the key at the end of the updates of Windows.  Delete this key.
    • Close regedit and reboot the system.

    After you complete these steps, I was able to get out successfully the updates available from the link "Check for Updates".  Given that KB3033929 was on the list, but not KB3035131, I checked all the world updates except for KB3033929 for download.  PC restarted when Windows Update completed downloads, and now I have this infinite loop with the update Windows restart process.

    Thanks to all those involved... my sysadmin at work, technical representative at Microsoft and all of you who have read my question.  Have a safe and happy holiday season!

  • Computer goes into a reboot loop after installation of an update

    Original title: Windows Update on August 12, 2011

    My laptop has done a windows update this morning, don't know what he did, it was very fast now, everytime I turn on windows trying to open then fails and continues to do this in a loop.  Please no technique with the help of numpty here!


    1. what update has the problem from occurring?

    Follow these steps and check if the problem persists.
    Step 1:

    You can check if you can "disable automatic system failure reboot " from the options in advance. In this way the computer will not go into a reboot loop and you will be able to note the error code, if any. If you see no error code, you can answer comes back with the error code.
    Step 2:
    I suggest that you start your computer in safe mode and check if the problem persists.
    Step 3:
    If the system works fine in safe mode, I suspect that there could be a conflict of software of third party causing the problem to occur. I suggest that you start your machine in a clean boot State.
    Note: Follow step 7 to your computer as usual.
    See the below article access in Event Viewer.
    Open event viewer

    Step 4:

    Updated version has a problem in the history of the update.
    a. open Windows Update by clicking on the button start. In the search box, type Update, and then in the list of results, click Windows Update.
    (b) in the left pane, click view update history.
    c. to display more information about an update, double-click it.
    Do System Restore to the point that your computer worked very well and install updates manually ensuring that do not install the problem causing the update unless it says 'important update '.

Windows will not start and the computer continues to restart and display the same message. The update is not installed successfully.

    To resolve this problem, use the following methods in the order in which they are presented. Method 1 is the simplest solution, and method 3 is the most complex.

  • Problem in reboot loop after updates.

    I have windows XP on an Asus A8V-E-SE motherboard has developed a problem in reboot loop after updates.  It will not go in safe mode either.  Stop at a display of the driver.  I used the recovery console using the XP cd and you can see the update directories in the systemroot folder.  I followed the instructions in the forum to uninstall every update by accessing commands back to the subdirectory spuninst update and then run "Batch spuninst.txt.  I get a bunch of 'access denied' messages for each of them (varies in amount of "access denied" messages by everyone but consistent for each.)  It's not like the batch uninstall for the update does not work.  I tried to uninstall all updates yesterday 10/02/10 (I had 10) even with the "access denied" messages, but it still will not initialize properly.  No way to move the access denied message?
