I couldn't boot to safe mode. Only to recovery console panel.
I was able to get to a cmnd. prompt and copy the restore point from a known good date and got it back up.
My question is, has anyone else had this problem and what caused it? Also, if you can't download from Microsoft, who can we trust. Is this a bad update?
My wife was about to reformat the drive when I caught her and had her let me take a look at it. She would have been very po'd when she discovered that the format had erased all her files and data. I imagine if this is a bad update, there are a lot of mad people about now.
I am now afraid to update anything from MS till I hear that they have fixed this or that it was caused from another problem.
