The error deals with corruption of the boot sector, bcdedit/bootrec might need to be used to set the bootrec.

The updates adjust bootup to apply the changes.

Do you have backups or better a redundant system that performs those tasks?

Before you try fixing the boot sector (good suggestion above) .. try pulling all your memory and add some known good memory. I have seen this error thrown because of this before.  This is a quick test then on to arnold's suggestion.

I tried the repaid through the command prompt. it didn't work. I am trying to restore but I was hoping to not loose any of the info. The memory is fine , I was able to reinstall on a new disk to test the system.

what does the system do?
Are you able to boot the system either with a linux/windows PE where you have network access as well as access to the underlying data?

You might want to run sfc offline to see whether it will restore, restore points?

i was not able to boot . it would show options to start windows but non of them worked. i ended up restoring windows from an older backup. took the data drive out. replace with blank. I then put in the old data drive after the restore was done.
thanks
