    My pc did some updates yesterday and after reboot, it is stuck at "preparing to configure windows do not turn off computer"

    It was like this for about 2 hours, so I reboot it. Every time I boot my pc, it says the same preparing to configure..... and stays there forever. I tried to safe mode, nothing. I tried to restore to previous state, but I had it disabled.

    I left it like this over the night, but in morning, it was still in this preparing....

    Please some help.

    Thanks.

    Boot with setup media, and at install screen press Shift+F10 to bring CMD and execute:
    Code:
    DISM /Image:C:\ /Cleanup-Image /RevertPendingActions

    Thank you. That did not work, allthought it did its job. But you gave the idea.

    Boot with linux, go to windows->winsx->delete 3 file named pending.

    Reboot, everything ok!!!

    Again, thank you a lot...!!!!
