had new ASUS UL30a for a week - windows 7 64bit.

turned off all the updates, deleted all the rubbish, and installed MS security essentials.

ran perfect.

today did a restart and went to a "windows is doing an update"and was stuck at 15% for 25 minutes. this was strange as i was not expected anything like this.

on reboot it went to unpacking 206,000 files! at 30,000 it went black. after 10 mins i rebooted, and then went to repair mode -
i have no restore points as all this is turned off.

the pc has no cd drive, and i have SUPER IMPORTANT files on the disk.

what can i do? i have a restore cd, but how can i get this to be a boot usb disk? looks like hard work. note: i have another pc i can do stuff on to help.


this is nuts!!!

When booting it up and hitting F8 after the BIOS(first screen that shows company logo) goes away, can you select 'Start Windows Normally'? What happens when you do that?

If that does nothing after 10 minutes, reboot and do the same as above but choose 'Last Known Good Configuration.'

Come back with results.

Definitely create restore points and have it setup to do so. They are vital in ensuring you might not have to do a complete reinstall one day.

Glad we could solve it for you, please click the solved button at the top of the thread!
