    So, a few months ago i did an update on my computer which has windows 10 and the update failed. Now whenever i restart my computer it comes up with the following message "update failed, to re-install windows, restart the update" the only problem with this is that I can't get it to start up as it keeps displaying this message. I have managed to get command prompt up and was wondering if this could be fixed through it.

    You may need to reinstall Windows, per your error description.

    If the update has caused Windows to be corrupted, you may need to reinstall it.

    You could try a system recovery or maybe a system restore, but depending on the amount of damage, it may be a system reinstall.
