Windows 7 Security Update fails on Asus P5DG1 Pro
I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bits on an Asus P5DG1 Pro.
This week I had the unpleasant experience to see a Windows Update fail on my machine. It installed, asked to reboot, but when it did, it got as far as displaying the text "Starting Windows", but the four coloured balls never appeared. No hard disk activity - just dead.
I tried recovering etc. but no result. Only option was to go to the DOS prompt in the recovery menu, and rescue my data with a network connection.
I did a fresh OS install, worked fine, nothing wrong with the disk or whatever. Then activated the Updates again - same issue, same problem after installing all updates.
Updated BIOS, then I did some fiddeling with the updates, found out that "a" Security Update is the culprit, but which one of the 67?
Before I start the painstaking work of finding out which one, my question: does anyone know, or has somebody experienced the same problem with this motherboard?
My thanks in advance (not to MS though...)
