I have a Win2008R2 VM that is hung at a screen saying:

Failure configuring Windows updates Reverting Changes. Do not turn off your computer.

It has been stuck for 6hrs.  Is there a way to get this server unhung?

Power it OFF, and it will start and revert the Changes.

We've had a server also this week do the same after a Windows update.

After powering off I was prompted with an option to boot in safe mode. I booted in safe mode successfully then I shut it down again to boot normally. Now it is stuck at the screen saying:

Failure configuring Windows updates Reverting Changes. Do not turn off your computer.

How long have you left it.

If after a few hours no response, power off.

If no luck, you will have to restore from backup.
