I did a scripted install on 10 laptops recently and when i went to update them some of the updates installed correctly. Or so it seemed. Before i rebooted it said that only one update failed. Then, i rebooted. It got to where it was configuring windows updates and then once it got to step three it kept failing and rolling back and then retrying. It would reboot and then do the same thing again. I couldn't get into windows unless i booted into regular safe mode. let it fail and then it would boot into windows.

Any ideas?
thanks in advance.

You'll need to reset the components that are installed via Windows Update.

Rather than me trying to write it all out again, here is a simple link that explains it, and includes a link to automatically fix it.

Your Systems having SP1 installed on them?

What patches you have configured to install them? Are you using script like batch file with psexec to install on 10 remote PC?
