Error during windows update from clean pc?

#1Betterdayz7Posted 8/20/2014 1:30:37 PM
So i just formated my PC and when installing the windows updates, the PC runs into a loop

Error during configuration of windows updates. And then something about resetting to a previous point (hard to translate).
Do not turn off PC

then after about 30mins the computer restarted and the same thing happened.... and then again. What is this and how can i avoid it?

I have a HP Easynote and i didnt have this problem before

Next time skip the windows updates and go right to the service packs. (download the offline redistributable package from the microsoft website)
Then let it install updates.

Do you have your install disk? Boot to recovery console and run system restore and restore to an earlier point.

Is this windows 7 or 8?
