Windows 7: Can one apply Windows Updates without Loging on to Windows?

Can one apply Windows Updates without Loging on to Windows?

Dear sevenforum users,

The problem in question is not happening to myself but someone I want to help out.

When he tries to logon to his Windows 7 machine he gets a interactive logon failure error message and is unable to logon.

He tried save mode, save mode with network and save mode with command prompt and none worked. So he installed a second Windows 7 on another partition, made some research and found a hotfix he's sure will solve his problem.

Now we are at the one million question: How to apply updates without being able to log on to Windows?

Are there any means to accomplish this? Thanks in advance, Ricardo Bohner.

Try doing this to see if things can be repaired.

SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

Use method 1.
