please wait for the windows modules installer


I shutdown a server lastnight (2008R2) due to electrical work being carried out in the office.  When I rebooted this morning the server is trying to install updates and sitting at 17%, it has moved in 2 hrs from 15% installed.  

When I RDP into the server I get the msg "please wait for the windows modules installer", this has just changed to "configuring windows updates 18%"

I can browse to the shared drives on the server, Hyper-V services are not running which is a pain.

I have reviewed articles on the net, however noist of them lean towards Vista and not 2008R2, any ideas would be appreciated as this is a production server

I saw this on one of our production hyper-v servers a few weeks ago. After a couple of hours i just tuned it off and cold booted it again. The server booted flawlessly the second time.
Don't know if this is of much help to you, just sharing my experience...
