I got a notification a few hours ago that windows 8.1 had installed an auto update that required a restart. I decided to delay the restart. Then, as I was doing a video chat session in Lync the Lync app crashed. A few seconds later my PC restarted. Now I cannot boot into windows 8.1. When I try the machine simply reboots at some point during bootup. My machine is configured to dual boot and I'm successfully using Windows 7.
So I believe a recent update has destroyed my system. Anyone hear of a recent update causing PC crashing or have another suggestion? I can still access the windows 8 HD which is a separate physical drive.
After nothing particularly different my system decided it was ok to boot into Windows 8.1. The following updates were installed today:
