Boot without installing Windows Updates
Posted on 2014-07-17
I have a snapshot of a server that was broken by some windows updates. I need to boot it up without allowing the updates to install. I need to find a way to trick it into not knowing what day/time it is or similar. Historically it is controlled by a GPO that forces an update at 2 AM Thursday morning. My snapshot is from Wednesday, well before the scheduled time, but anytime I restore the snapshot, it updates as it boots up.
