Preferred Solution: Update not complete undoing changes stuck (window8.1)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Error: We couldn?t complete the updates, Undoing changes. Don?t turn off your computer.After initial setup, I installed Windows Firewall, Avast, and Chrome. That's it so far.

I ran updates I think the first one went through. The next one didn't. And I got that error. And I tried again a few times. I tried disabling all the security software. Still the same error.

A:Update Error - couldn't complete. Undoing changes.

Run the Windows Update Troubleshooter from this site:
Troubleshoot problems with installing updates - Windows Help

Update in batches of 5 at a time, you may find the one that is causing the problem and try to install it by itself. Net Framwork updates are usually the ones that cause the problem.

Hi,Either the hard drive must be failing or OS for corrupted or it may be just some Windows Updates causing the problem.You can do a system restore to a previously known good state.See "Restore your computer when Windows cannot start normally" section in here - http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03327545But first do a complete - quick & extensive hard drive testing from BIOS first:http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03467259Do you have the recovery media with you?If HDD has FAILED, you've to replace it first.If HDD had not failed, I suggest you do change automatic Windows Update from Control Panel to "To Check for Updates Automatically but Let you Choose to Download and Install them or Not" next time after you do a restore.

Hi! I just received this laptop for Christmas and unfortunately, I'm already having problems!

Hello, Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for posting. This is happening because Windows cannot complete and cannot properly install updates.It may be even the bigger Windows 10 Anniversary Update Most often reason for the failure is some 3rd party driver conflicting with the update process. Your PC may have older drivers than what Win 10 wants to be. Since this is a new PC, let's flatten it and start over. 1. Please, perform recovery - system recovery and restore the PC to factory default settings. Since this is a new PC for you, I guess you will not loose much (anything). Here is how it should work:>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTlHwkVuv5Qor >> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04758961  2. Once ready and once you return to factory default condition, please do the following: 2.1 . Uninstall any 3rd party antivirus programs - if anything. If you see McAfee installed, please uninstall it from Control Panel and restart.  Also, run the McAfee MCPR tool to get rid of McAfee leftovers >> http://us.mcafee.com/apps/supporttools/mcpr/mcpr.asp 2.2.  Visit the HP Web site and download and run drivers updates - new driver versions may be present that will work with the newer Windows 10 release:>> http://support.hp.com/us-en/driversor Use the Device Manager method to update drivers >> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03330139  3.  Manually upgrade to Windows 10 ...

This is my first post at eightforums and i have searched internet over a problem i am facing with no luck. So i hope someone could give me a workaround to my problem.

The problem i am dealing with is that i cannot install further any updates. I am downloading the updates, i click on the install update button, my computer restarts messaging that is installing windows updates and when reaches at 99% it prompts "We couldn't complete the updates. Undoing changes. Don't turn off your computer" and reverts successfully after a while.

In my update history there is no record

but in my update history in pc settings it looks that it has installed an update.
and when i look windows update in Programs and Fetaures i can see some updates that installed when i first bought my laptop at about one year over. Since then i haven't been able to update my windows coming with the "Undoing updates" message. I need to complete the updates in order upgrade to Windows 10.

Hi there

I am looking for assistance. I am trying to install KB3000850 on a Windows 8.1 Pro x64 machine however when it installs - and restarts - I get message saying "we couldn't complete the update - undoing changes - don't turn off your computer".

The computer then loops and loops and loops (restarting,...... undoing changes.....restarting etc). I have to boot into safe mode to get it to stop.

Attached are the CBS logs after a first attempt and 2nd attempt. Can anyone assist me?

I have installed lots of other updates via Windows update and they work fine but not this one.

Here are the steps I have tried.
1. sfc /scannow in safe mode then a reboot - update retried - same issue (loop, undoing changes). Sfc said it could not fix all errors.
2. I ran the windows update troubleshooter - which found three issues and fixed two.
3. I updated the windows 8.1 update agent to the latest one https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3075853
4. Tried sfc /scannow - same as step 1.
5. Manually downloaded update KB3000850 and installed it. It installs as normal and then on the restart it goes working on updates as normal and then it restarts and same issue - loop - undoing changes - loop.

I'm not an expert at reading CBS logs currently so hoping someone has an idea whats going on.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
I would just let it continue to run.  Some of the updates from Microsoft can take a little while to install.  If you downloaded a large number of updates that may account for the long installation time.

there are 157 important updates(750mb) that was shown so i tried to update but i noticed i was stuck at 0% for a long time so i thought it was probably because it was too large so i canceled it and tried downloading only 1 item and the smallest(400kb) but the same thing happened it is stuck at 0%...it doesnt show any errors

i already browsed the internet for possible solution but no success yet. Tried microsoft fix it but it didnt work

any suggestions?

A:Windows Update stuck (0KB total,0% complete)

Hello Cauyao,

Start with the oldest update and wait and wait, the first one takes ages. This is sort of normal after such a long period of no-action.

I am not an expert at all, but when I was faced with the same problem I did them in batches of first 5, then later ( when that went ok 10 ) It takes time and patience, but for me, it worked.

And ( on the list of the 157 ) make sure to take away ( untick ) the updates for windows 10.

So basically I let windows update download and install the updates and it asked me to restart my PC. I did and when I booted up it put me on the updating screen.. The progress got to 99% then it told me there was a problem and it couldn't install the updates so it had to "undo the changes".

Waited 2 hours on the "Undoing changes" screen before manually restarting the PC only to be put on the "Undoing changes" screen again... That was 7 hours ago.

Here is what I CAN'T do:

1) Can't restore system because it says my anti-virus won't let me
2) Can't disable anti-malware on start up from advance recovery because it puts me back on "Undoing changes"
3) Can't go into safe mode because it puts me back on the "Undoing changes" Screen
4) Can't do a system refresh with my Win 8.1 Pro boot USB because it says it is unable to do so

I've spent the majority of my day trying to fix this broken mess and short of reformatting the PC nothing seems to work. I'd prefer not to reformat the PC because I have files which I need on the PC (and although I have backups of those files else where, they are older backups)

Any ideas would be appreciated.

A:Windows 8.1 Pro stuck on Undoing Changes

First order of business is to get the files (you need) off of that hard drive. If you have access to another computer and the hard drive can be easily removed, hook it up to that other computer and retrieve the files. if hard drive removal is not your choice, boot with a Linux Live CD (Ubuntu or Puppy Linux for example). Another option is to boot with Hiren's Boot CD.

Download latest Puppy Linux release

I was installing Windows 8.1 from 8 on a Toshiba laptop. Lost Internet connection at the very last part of the download and couldn't reconnect. So I cut the computer off and when I cut it back on to reconnect so I could start over I was trying to reinstall Windows 8 as it suggested and it then went to a Choose an Option blue screen with 5 different options to choose from. I chose Continue Exit and Continue to Windows 8. It started loading but every time it goes back to the blue Choose an Option screen. I would just like to get back in to reconnect to the Internet so I can start the 8.1 update over. Thanks for any feedback.

A:After Failed 8.1 Update from Windows 8 Can't choose Exit and Continue to Window8

Have you tried to revert the pending update through Command Prompt that might hopefully solve the problem for you. But I'm afraid the update has already been applied then only a refresh can fix this problem, lets try the reverting first:
Open Troubleshoot
Choose Advanced Options
Choose Command Prompt
Then type DISM /image:C\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions and hit enter
Then type move C:\Windows\WinSxS\pending.xml C:\Windows\WinSxS\pending.old then hit enter
Reboot the device afterwards, if you get a FILE not found then replace C: with X: that might help ;) (See step by step video and guide here)

Last week, my computer underwent some updates. I did those updates in the late night. The next morning, I started my computer, and it would not connect to the internet. I did a system restore the following night, and I chose a point before said updates took place. My PC was running smooth for a while.
Yesterday, it mentioned that it needs to update again. I postponed the updates. This afternoon, it gave me a countdown to when it will automatically undergo the updates. The computer did the updates, and the same problems returned.
I tried another system restore, but this time when it restored, it immediately began updates. Apparently, the updates were not successful, because the computer is now saying 'We couldn't complete the updates. Undoing changes. Don't turn off your computer.' This screen stayed for around 40 minutes, and then it said it was restarting. But, after the restart, it went back to the same 'undoing updates' screen. 
I am considering turning the computer off and trying to reboot in Safe Mode.
PS: The PC is a HP touchscreen laptop with Windows 8.1.
This is my sister's computer, and she is a college student in her last semester.

Did you ever make any system images?http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/create-system-image-in-windows-7-8/
If so you could probably use one and fix your problem, use is described in these two sets of instructions. If you lack a system image then try starting into the recovery environment anyway, as when you reach the "select a system image backup" dialog there might (just might) be an image preinstalled by the manufacturer on a hidden partition of your drive and if there isn't you can always go back from there. Advanced startup can be accessed in several ways, if none of the ways described below work for you then others here shold be able to advise you on alternative ways of reaching them.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/advanced-startup-options-menu-in-windows-8/http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/system-image-recovery-in-windows-7-8/
If there is no image of your won which you made on the hard-drive or on an external disc, and the manufacturer hasn't pre-installed one then you must use the other options available, but thye are much trickier to work with and have many ways of going wrong. Things like "reset/refresh" and "system restore" and "automatic repair" can work but are less effective, less reliable and will require more reinstalling of programs and resetting of settings to your personal tastes afterwards. If you lack a system image of your own (or pre-installed on the machine) then i would suggest asking for further advice before trying to use any... Read more

I get a 0% complete whether I try to install 1 or 68. my notification for win updates is "check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them"
Based on other posts online I have tried stopping and starting win updates from cmd.exe and deleting the files in c/windows/softwaredistribution/download. None of that worked.
Now I just tried the vaio care update and after hanging at "installing..." for awhile, it failed to install.

 It sounds like you may have some corrupt system files.  Start an administrative command prompt and issue this command:
sfc /scannow.  Note that it can run for a while - 10 to 30 min. in most cases.  If that doesn't fix it, download MalwareBytes from here, get it up to date, and run it.  If you're still having problems, you may want to post in the Am I Infected forum.
 Good luck.

Some time ago I installed some software (on Windows 8.1) that went wrong (couldn't install the software and subsequently a computer crash) and the installation was messed up.

Now, every time I boot my machine I am getting the standard Windows needs to restart to finish the installation dialogue.

I can't get this to go away. No matter how many times I restart.

I didn't have a restore point set up prior to this (as this is a relatively new Windows installation) so can't restore out of this problem.

I was wondering if someone could tell me how I can kill this process that is causing this restart message as I am unable to find what I need to do to stop this from happening.

As I cannot get into the computer at all I tried starting in safe mode which brought me back to the same screen. I was able to press f8 on start up to access system recovery from a previous point but this only gives me one previous point to restore from which says windows updater. I have restored from this point anyway but am getting the same problem. I have tried repair but it doesnt find anything wrong. I am loathe to do a complete reset as I do not want to lose all the photos. Please can someone offer any advice on this issue and it is driving me insane. The laptop is 18 months old.

Now I've installed the same service pack and the process went fine. However, hers will not get past the "Configuring Updates: Stage 3 of 3 - 0% complete" message.

How has this problem occurred and what can be done to resolve it? I have already searched for this problem, but reports discuss Service Pack1, not 2.

I forgot to mention, I have already tried 'Last Known Good Configuration' and 'System Restore' to an earlier point.. Both go back to the point just before the service pack was installed, so the update attempts to install from stage 1 and fails at stage 3. This is recurring!

this could be somewhat complicated and should be either in driver section, or installation section or could be on both windows 7 and 8 forum.

here goes.. recently im into SSDs and usb 3.0 so i got myself a usb 3.0 flash drive, made it bootable with window 7 files on it and then install window 7 from flashdrive to my ssd which takes about 3 mins, very fast.

since window 7 natively does not support usb 3.0, i had to install usb3 drivers during installation screen which is a hassle because i have 4 laptops, which all have usb 3.0 ports, but each laptop uses different usb 3.0 drivers and thats where my problem is.

i could slipstream usb 3 driver into win7 install disc, then copy the disc files onto my flashdrive but then i would need 4 seperate flashdrives, or 4 times amount of files. then i thought about windows 8 which ive tried, it automatically detects usb 3.0 during installation screen just fine and of course theres no way it would know what drivers i am using, so obviously microsoft has a *general* usb3.0 driver they use themselves for windows 8.

if i can find that usb 3.0 drivers for windows 8, i should be able to slipstream into the window7 install cd, then of course copy it onto my flashdrive so i no longer have to install different usb 3.0 drivers everytime, correct?

plz help me out.. lol

A:slip stream MS window8 usb 3.0 driver into window 7 install CD

Chances are Win8 has most of the USB 3.0 drivers so that yours is able to be installed. Absent this I would simply get the driver from optional Windows Updates which is how the installer drivers are updated and missing drivers supplied shortly after Win7 install.

Short of that keep the USB 3. driver on stick to install in Device Manager.

If you want to try to slipstream the Win8 USB 3 driver into your 7 installer using 7Lite to see if it will work, then that might be a fun project but hardly necessary.

High Pitched Chipmonk Audio on Window8 with Realtek HD

Recently my laptop started sounding like the Chipmonks, with a higher pitch, set to all of the sounds coming out my computer. After reading dozens of useless posts, I came to the conclusion that this 'must be a settings' issue, and started looking around. The culprit, in my case, was a setting for Realtek HD sound card. This is what I did to correct it:

1. Put on some music or sound for monitoring.
2. Right-click on the (little red speaker) icon, for the Realtek HD sound card on the toolbar (or find in programs).
3. Click on 'Sound Manager'
4. Click on 'Sound Effects'
5. Find the 'Karaoke' setting.
6. Set it to '+0'
7. IMPORTANT: Click 'ok' on the bottom right corner.

That should do it.
Setting that Karaoke tab up will increase the sound pitch for all audio on the computer. Setting it down, will lower the pitch for all of the audio. I hope this helps someone out there.
