- I was able to boot in safe mode
- Attempted to reboot in normal mode - no dice. Reasonable as I didn't change anything when booted in Safe Mode
- Rebooted in Safe Mode and took a look at the restore points. Only thing of interest was a windows update.
- Rolled back to before that last windows update
- Rebooted into "normal" mode - no issues
It would appear there was something in that Windows Update D/L causing that problem.
Is there a way, given the above sequence of events, for one to recover a list of the contents of the D/L that was installed as a part of the windows update?
I'm having the same issue, ran windows update today on a 7100 build. I selected the recommended Update:
Internet Explorer 8 Compatibility View List for Windows 7 RC for x64 (KB971930)
And Optional Updates:
Samsung - Display SyncMaster 204T/204Ts/204B, SyncMaster Magic CX201Ts(Digital)
Office Live Add-in
Network Monitor 3.3
nVidia - Display - NVIDIA GeForce GTX260
repair did not work and the Problem Signature mentioned
disabling the reboot after crash in the F8 didnt prevent it from rebooting during the windows load screen to get the details
I dont have any external media so I'm not sure what that is about, I disabled the nvida cards (as mentioned in this thread) in safe mode then was able to boot back into Windows 7
Next I enabled both cards and allowed it to reboot, it crashed on load again
back in safe mode I installed drivers from nvida's site directly
during the driver install it said 'Stereo Server has not been properly installed' [OK] being the only choice I clicked it and it finished 'successfully'
that still crashed when booting into Windows 7
back to safemode, chose 'uninstall' from device manager rather than 'disable' (I also checked the box that said delete drivers), then went into control panel and removed anything Nvidia (some stereoscopic view program and physX)
window 7 now detected my cards and installed device drivers. I clicked the status baloon from the systray and hit 'skip obtaining driver software from windows update'
windows reported they installed and required reboot, finally success! back in Windows 7 and hopefully this helps someone else
