virtual Windows 8 machine stops(?) after installing a lot of updates in "updating your system" 11% RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi together,

    I have a virtual Windows 8 machine that had houndres of updates to install.

    After finishing the updates and rebooting the system the machine stops (or takes very long time?) with "updating your system" 11% (for more than 12 hours).

    For sure there is important data on the machine ;-).

    I read about a problem with an old update (november)...

    Any idea how to figure out if the machine is "only" very slow or how to proceed?

  • Hi Gernot,

     

    Based on your description, I noticed that your system hangs on “updating your system” 11%.

     

    First of all, we may try turning it on in safe mode with networking first, then try restart the update.

     

    The windows update troubleshooter may be a good idea, please try it.

    In addition, for more about the issue, please refer to the link:
