I have a HP ProBook 4520s, I have installed Windows 7. I updated it from internet and on system shutdown, it said,
Please do no power off or unplug you machine , Installing update 36 of 47.
And eventually, after charging ended, my machine was turned off. Then, whenever I power on this machine it is stuck at same place. I have looked online for this problem, but many people say to put in the Windows DVD, or starting in safe mode.
My question is: How? When I tried to shut down the system it just goes to standby or hibernate I guess. The power button slightly blinks. When I start it again it is exactly at same situation.
So I am totally stuck at this place. Is there any way to get my system out of this situation? I will be even happy to remove Windows, re-install it, or even install Linux. But I have some work to do on system that is urgent. But want to get out of this situation. So what can I do, short of replacing the hard drive?
