I installed windows updates and was asked to restart the system. Ever since I did that my computer has refused to boot it just goes straight to a balck screen that says windows did not shut down properly and asks if i should boot in safe mode, last known working configuration or normally. I tried booting the system in safe mode and in the other two but each time it shows the windows screen then a blue screen flashes and then the computer reboots. I have tried booting the computer using a Linux OS live cd called Ubuntu to see if i could mount my hard drive that way and access my files so i save my files but that has not worked. Please does anyone have any suggestion of a way to recover my files from my hard drive and move them unto an external. I am utterly confused.
