    The title is the short short version.
    Windows 7 is the OS
    I have been only installing important updates for Windows lately. I know I am overdue for a format (2years) but haven't been able to find a disk for it.
    My laptop BSOD'd on an automatic update last night that I did not tell it to do.
    When it booted up it went back to the Preparing to configure windows please wait screen. I let it stay there for 5 hours before intervening.
    It sometimes has given me the fatal error bsod since.
    Now after it boots it refuses to go to the user select screen. In safe mode it will try updating to no avail. I tried starting in last good configuration. I tried system repair and disk check and they both came up with no errors. I am in between jobs so I cannot take it somewhere and I need my lappy to get a job. So I'm stuck unless I can figure this out.
    I have nothing to restore it back to since I thought it had backups.
    Formatting is not an option.
    Thanks for any help ahead of time.

    Update.
    After about 30 minutes and using the last known good configuration options it is at the pretty blue screen flashing to black every 10 seconds EXAXTLY.
    Mouse is there but there are no options. The little blue wheel around the mouse is there when it flashes black.
    It did that for 2 minutes and just restarted.
