(Can a MOD please move this thread to the sbs2008 area, I accidenly stuck it in hardware servers)
Fresh OEM install, everything went perfect, left it to apply its recent updates and 7 hours later the
CONFIGURING UPDATES STAGE 3 OF 3: 0%
Message was still on the screen, Forced reboot and it loaded to a black screen with the mouse cursor(even in safe mode), googled and found this fix, (delete WINDOWS\WINSXS\PENDING.XML)
It seemed to then boot normal, but has stuck on a screen with this message
" updates were not configure correctly. reverting changes. do not turn off your computer."
Its been like that for over an hour.
Not sure what to do next ? pleae advise, don't want to have to reinstall if possible.
