Windows 7: BSOD After Restarting From Download Initial Updates

Hi,

Get back to the command prompt using your DVD and enter the following commands.
(note the space between bootrec.exe and /FixMbr)

bootrec.exe /FixMbr

If successful you should see a message "The operation completed successfully"

While the above command does fix the MBR, and sometimes that is enough, there still might be an error with the system partition's boot sector and Boot Configuration Data (BCD). This might occur if you have tried to install another operating system alongside Windows 7, such as Windows XP. To write a new boot sector, try the following command:

bootrec.exe /FixBoot

If you are still faced with your Windows 7 installation not being detected during start up, or if you wish to include more than one operating system choice to your system's boot list, you can try the following command to rebuild your BCD:

bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd

The above command will scan all your disks for other operating systems compatible with Windows 7 and allow you to add them to your system's boot list. If this fails, you may need to backup the old BCD folder* and create a new one in its place, follow this tutorial:

Also please see this guide if the above does not correct your boot issues.
