Every time I install updates and reboot, my updates are "repaired" and I have to install them again...and again...?

    Question

  • As the title suggests - Windows Update downloads and installs some drivers for me (including updated motherboard drivers, without which I can't even install graphics drivers!) It then asks me to reboot as per usual. Nothing wrong with that....

    But when I reboot, I am presented with a Windows Developer Preview loading screen which says "attempting repairs..." for a while, reboots again, then I'm back at square one and need to install the updates again.

    Any way to disable/skip this auto repair feature? I've tried the usual buttons (mashing F8/pretty much every key on the keyboard) with no luck. Best I can manage is ctrl-alt-del, but I just can't get it to skip the process.

    Cheers,

    Stephen

  • Hey Stephen,

    Hitting F8 key just before the Windows Developer Preview screen, does that do anything? If you're able to get to the Preparing Options screen after F8, there are options to troubleshoot the system. Options include refresh, reset the PC or advanced options where system restore is still available.

  • I'm currently having this exact same problem.  Can install the updates, but on reboot they get 'repaired'.  When I look at what updates have been applied, it shows that they were successfully installed, however it shows the same items to be installed again (since they were removed with the 'repair').  Not sure what to do about this.  Will try some F8 steps.

  • I am having the same problem. I have tried the repair options in F8 but none of them help at all. I have even re-installed the OS and the problem is still occurring.
