Updating stage 3 of 3
This is a very small board created in 3.1.2, started only a couple of weeks ago.Being a novice user of version 3, I assumed that the notice in the ACP stating that I would be taken through the update process would do what it said it would do.I have also tried to get into recovery but when it askes for the administror pass word it says "administrator disabled" I'm kinda at a loss as to what to do next? This IS an old issue, but CLEARLY no one has found a satisfactory fix. What is the tried and true action that will fix this?I see a variety of updates but no one has said it fixed their system and they were able to fix it once and for all. I have used the F8 key to attempt to enter safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, and all of the other options at the F8 screen, but in each case always get the screen "configuring updates 3 of 3 - 94% complete then the system reboots. This did happen to my system i am running Vista Home Premium with SP1 on a 64 bit operating system.Any way to modify the registry entries without actually getting Vista to start (nromally or in safe mode)? I tried to install this as directed Vista x64: and received the following message "this update does not apply to your system".I currently have changed my system not to automatically do any updates from microsoft until i know that this won't happen again.I do have an update waiting to be installed Vista sp2..thoughts on what i should do?
One significant problem I have is that I am traveling and do not have the Vista DVD with me.
I ran Windows update on my Vista Business edition yesterday.
