Windows 7 x64 Ultimate won't boot after updates.

I really don't know what to do now, this Sony machine had vista and later was upgraded to Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, recently I pushed all of the 36 updates recommended from Microsoft after the reboot now it can't even get to the log on screen. I've tried to repair from the CD and it stays forever on with the cursor thinking after I hit repair. I've tried safe mode and stays forever on the loading driver black screen, if I boot on normal mode it tries to repair but it hangs forever, I'm not sure if I'm dealing with some sort of hardware problem, so I took the drive out, plugged into a usb adapter and it shows the drive but no partition. all I'm trying to do is to recover to the day prior of the updates, any ideas?

Cheers

First, if you are checking the drive with XP the gpt partition is not mountable in XP and won't be seen.
If you can boot to a command prompt you can run system restore from the command line---rstrui.exe

check your bios and make sure your sata setting are set to ahci and not compatibility mode.
