comment Sqoop Tar ball unpacking
Great answer! I didn't know the directory needed an ending slash. Of note, the files extracted to a folder which contained the extracted files sqoop-1.99.3-bin-hadoop200 in my case. Also, the file extractions are listed as relative paths.

@Ramhound - Good suggestion. I installed the latest G15 drivers from Logitech's support site. Problem is still there.

comment windows 8.1 windows key not working
@Ramhound - Please re-read the question. As I pointed out I suspect this is not a hardware issue and may be related to windows update. I also pointed out this is a common 8.1 issue seemingly unrelated to the keyboard hardware. Its also very unlikely that both windows keys would fail at the same time.

comment After an automatic update on windows 8.1 pc is doing rolling restarts
@Ramhound I don't know what it installed. This was done by auto update. I don't know of any way to check because I can't get into the OS.

I have not been given any safe mode options after many more than 2 failed boots. I think i need to be able to acess safe mode to restore. I will try F12? To force boot menu access. Restarts are happening before the login menu
