Windows 7: System Restore/Windows Update Problem

I can't do anything on the PC, all it does it load to the install screen and since it isn't actually installing the update, nothing happens. All I can do is turn the computer off and start over, and f8 doesn't let me load in safe mode or anything. I literally can't do anything.

EDIT: I may have found a solution. I fiddled with the boot options before to have the CD/USB boot before the hard drive to allow them to do their job but that didn't do anything. This time I just set the hard drive to flat out not boot at all and the system recovery disc loaded windows successfully without trying to do the system update. Since I had already backed up everything I needed, I was able to run the dell restore program and I'll give an update on what happens when it's done.

It would just make a noise and nothing would happen. The bottom right of the screen would tell me to click f2 for one menu, f12 for another. Hitting f2 would cause the text to change from grey to white and load the CMOS menu, hitting f12 would make the same noise as f8 and do nothing.
