SteadyState hangs upon autoupdate
Posted on 2009-05-04
Testing Steadystate prior to deploying it.
Did a fresh install of Windows XP on Thursday and installed Steadystate to return the system upon reboot and told steadystate to automatically update windows. Worked perfectly on Thursday. Late Friday afternoon I noticed that the PC was installing windows updates and that steadystate had rebooted. All weekend long the computer is stuck at a screen saying " The system is currently being updated and will reboot when completed" with no HD activity
Thinking the system hung, I hard booted the PC... same message again with no HD activity.
All the user accounts are disabled until the updates are complete so I can't log in
Anyone else run into this? It's almost as if the autoupdate is looking for user input to continue but of course no one can login as the accounts are disabled. Strange indeed
