Hi,

Laptop: HP G62
Windows 7 64 bits - french - Home Edition

After a few windows updates laptop start having problem to boot, it was lagging on booting, restart itself.
So I check logs and drivers and I did not find any particular problem.
So I restore the PC to a previous date (dec 17) .
The PC boot ok.

Windows updates found some updates which are regulare security updates.
The pc restart ok.

Then another updates where found, which was a Service pack updates.
The pc restart ok.

Another update which I didn't have the time to see what it was ....
got an error '1 on 2 update was installed one update can't be install during it in use'
 (sorry I don't have the exact message) then pc restart,  instead of regulare 1 on 2 install message on the screen I got this message: Application of operation updates 24 on 24 registry/match..
The Pc restart, I saw another message on booting  'was repairing something...'
Then PC does not boot anymore, it says that no harddrive is detected, install OS.
It's stays on HP logo booting page I can access bios and HP menu, that's all.

This PC is not mine, this is my father pc and he is in vacation so he don't have the restoration dvd with him.

I saw this information on HP page
http://h10010.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02707002&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=4226732   

In some cases, if the BIOS is not updated before installing SP1, the computer might fail to start properly.


I know I can order restore cd pack or use the one created during the installation, but if there is a way I can repair it now it will be easier for me to do it, my father is very newbie with pc plus he don't have internet access at home .

Thanks

Try to repair the system .
May be your OS has crash.
You can also create a system repair disc that contains the System Recovery Options menu.
Refer the below link.

There was no way to boot yesterday on the last config.
 I was getting no hd detected - install os message
This morning I went to the bios to get system info
did a hd test using the bios tool
I switch boot order so dvd is the first on boot sequence and hd is second.
Then on restart windows now boot.

I'm pretty sure if a restart the pc it will not boot, as it was lagging on boot yesterday.
So I want to do the max now pc is booted.
I'm doing a regular windows backup files for now.

Run sfc scannow first. Then, manually download the SP1 service pack standalone and install from there.

you can restore the laptop to factory settings if needed :
1. Reboot, and repeatedly press F10 at the HP logo until the recovery screen appears.
 2. When the recovery screen appears, press "Next" and then "Yes" to perform a non-destructive recovery (all data saved). After the recovery is finished, the laptop will reboot.
 
Or to perform a destructive recovery, (***This will erase all your unsaved data!***)
 Click "Advanced" and then "Yes".
 After the recovery is finished, the laptop will reboot.
 
Or
 Reboot, and repeatedly press F11. Follow on screen prompts.

Bios update was the solution to fix the problem.

-No need to restore Windows in that case
(anyhow in this case my father have no w7 dvd or other restoration DVD in hand - vacation).

Thanks to all I will split the points.
