Due to a busy schedule, I have turned on my windows 10 PC for the first time in a month. Of course I had a lot of updates waiting for me.
One of the updates was the February cumulative one (plus other security related... I don't know the exact culprit). The update went seemingly ok,but I got a BSOD at restart, with the Inacessible Boot Device error message (no further hex code were given, only a QR code and a link to windows.com/stopcode).
I tried a bit of command prompt magic, looking for some update still pending. The specific checks where something like this:
reg load hklm\temp c:\windows\system32\config\software reg delete “HKLM\temp\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\SessionsPending” /v Exclusive reg unload HKLM\temp
dism /image:C:\ /get-packages MKDIR C:\temp\packages dism /image:c:\ /remove-package /packagename:PACKAGEIDENTITYNAME /scratchdir:c:\temp\packages
where PACKAGEIDENTITYNAME was supposed to be any package with status "Install pending". But there were none: everything was "Installed". I tried all the same to remove-package all the packages installed during the day: I was able to remove some Fixup... but then I met a package which couldn't be removed (I suppose it is the cumulative update).
The boot device was still inaccessible, so I went for another approach and restored from a prior image which had been kept by the updater before installing (good job!) and disabled the automatic updates following microsoft suggestions.
Now everything is in working order but of course I don't have installed the updates.
The question is: what can I do to be able to keep my machine updated?
I fear that when I will turn the updates back on, I will blue-screen again.
Should (can?) I signal to microsoft that something in the update was not working for me? Have I to hope that some new cumulative update will fix the errors? Was some telemetry already sent so they are already busy working on it?
