Today (14-Aug-2010) I installed automatic updates for Win7 on my iMac. They could've been there a while waiting to be installed as it was a while since I booted up the mac into Windows. Previous update was on 2-Aug-2010.
Once I restarted the machine, it freezed on the windows startup screen (the logo didn't even come up).
So when I restarted it went into the startup check (find errors or whatever), which - after acknowledging that the system could not restart - just came back with an eloquent:
could not find a solution for the problem
After that I got a standard (useless) dialog asking to send errors to microsoft (there's only one kind of those that I have ever seen).
So I went into manual restore, which failed for a number of restore points. I was about to despair but then on re-start it worked acknowledging restore for the last restore point I tried.
Now I am afraid to install any further updates. I am guessing that if there is a recent win7 update that causes problems to iMacs 27'' the word should be out by now, so I'd appreciate if anyone has any info on this as I could not find anything on google.
NOTE: for those of you picking on my lack of accuracy in describing error messages, my question is more about a recent win7 update that could cause problems to iMac 27''. I don't think there a wide range of possible problems that could affect an iMac 27'' with the last Win7 update and someone must have figured this out before. In this sense, I'd be interested in hearing your experience on that or any relevant advice to the particular situation.
