    - Windows server 2012 r2 - not booting up after windows updates Error Code: 0x00000100 (0x0000000000000006,0x0000000000000003,0x0000000000000128,0x0000000000000988)

    Step 1: Boot from windows installation disk( windows 7 or later OS)
    Step 2: Click on repair your computer
    Step 3: Click on troubleshoot
    Step 4: Click on Command prompt

    Step 5: Verify the name of the volume letter assigned to the operating system in the recovery environment.
    - Type in the command prompt window
    - After checking that notepad windows will open .click file.click open.click this pc and check which of the volume contains the OS.
    (By default the volume letter is C:\ but it may change in the recovery environment)
    Close notepad and go back to command prompt

    Step 6: type the below command
    Dism /Image=C:\ /Cleanup-image /revertpendingactions

    if this doesnt work enter the below command

    Dism /image=C:\ /remove-package /packagename=Package_for_KB3146723~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~

    dism.is a windows urltility to perform offline servicing
    /image - specifies C:\ as the OS is installed on it.
    /remove-package - this swicth is usefull to remove the package
    /packagename - specifies the package to be removed.

    In this case we are removing the package because it might be the probable reason behind the crash.

    This patch is security patch. KB3146723

    I had this issue on 4 of my dell xp12 laptops.

    Had to boot from an installation usb and go into repair -> troubleshooting options to get to cmd, ran Dism /Image=C:\ /Cleanup-image /revertpendingactions and fixed my boot issue.

    Was defiantly KB3146723, installed all other updated fine.. Tested KB3146723 by itself and broke the boot, it seems to be breaking my wifi drivers, intel ac 7260.

    Disabled this update on WSUS.

    Ive had this happen again with another machine, however i wasnt able to restore the PC with Dism /Image=C:\ /Cleanup-image /revertpendingactions .

    booted from USB and ran
    Dism /Image=C:\ /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source=D:\,
    Was then able to boot into safemode and disable network card, once done booted back into windows and no issues.

    Only update left which is pending restart is https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3153171
