Around 2 years ago my windows were updating before restarting the computer, although when it booted back it tried to roll back the update as the update went wrong for some reason (no manual reset, or any external impact on the system). However, when it tried to roll back it got stuck and after a while, it restarted the system. So apparently I've got stuck in the infinite loop. I've tried exactly all mentioned ways how to fix the update/system but to my surprise, none of this worked - so I had to make an emergency backup and format the system drive and install the system again. To my knowledge, I've learned that while updating windows, the system actually creates a copy of windows (presumably PE) for this process (which I find interesting) because there were actually two copies of Windows I could boot on (didn't have plugged any other device having the system, nor HDD/SSD or flash disk).

"What If You Turn Off Your PC During An Update?" 1. Turn it on again. It should resume 2. If it doesn't, try safe/repair mode 3. If that fails, reinstall windows. Leave data on the disk as-is if it's important to keep-. Simple. No need to watch the video. (but go ahead)

I generally have no idea what is ever said in these videos (yet I still continue to watch lol), but I think—I mean, I’m no techy here—I think my computer is trolling me if it’s checking to ensure my “Sandals” “Socks” and “TomatoBisque” files are all there before updating…😂 EDIT: The stegosaurus is legit though.

Turning your PC off during recovery is worse. I once tried to put a different GPU into my Dell Precision T1700 pre-built PC. Well... it turned out to be quite troublesome. Apparently my PC was built in such a way that my powersupply did not have a 6/8-pin connector for my GPU and it was instead used to power the motherboard. So I tried starting my PC up without having the GPU connected to the powersupply. I saw nothing on my screen, so I turned it off... not knowing that it was doing something I should never have interrupted. After putting everything back again, it turned out that the system was trying to recover, but couldn't. My C drive apparently became the X drive (the recovery drive). After trying many things for several hours, the best I could do was just reinstall Windows 10 and everything else. Never again will I fit a GPU that requires a 6/8 pin connector without the correct connectors.

Just to be fair. It does nothing. You can still boot in safe mode and reinstalling the latest update solves any problem that arises. I tested this on purpose as soon as I saw this video. 6/23/21 I had a windows update from 6/21/21 (I always wait as long as I can for bugs to be worked out by the community so when I do upgrade I can solve my problem) I allowed the update to get past 50% and I pulled the plug from the wall. When I booted I got hung on the windows loading screen after boot up, I restarted, entered safe mode, and this time arrived on desktop no problem. I thought I would need to use a USB drive to reinstall my windows files but as soon as I looked if there were updates available it restarted the one I had already gotten halfway through back at 0% after it installed my computer rebooted and I arrived back on the log in screen without any problems. Tested. Next I'll try using a hammer on this 3080 to fix that damn sound. Right after the bread is finished toasting in there.

You should reset it on the screen in the thumbnail. If you see a percentage and it’s moving, don’t touch it. Reset it if it’s hung for a long time. If it says getting windows ready, and it’s more than a couple minutes, you’d be wise to reset it.

Honestly I avoid updates as much a so possibly can. Security risk? Sure. Though I recently let an update slip and now I'm stuck with a really annoying weather and news widget on my taskbar that I cannot disable (tried googling loads of things). It's also poorly made! Meaning occasionally the box will open, nothing will load and the box won't go away for 5 minutes and I lose a corner of my main monitor. I hate things like this because it is absolutely no use to me whatsoever, actively makes my experience worse, and I cannot disable it.
