You seem to be stuck in a Windows 7 update. It sounds like this is happening after a W7 update system restart; suggesting you can't log in to Windows.


All I could suggest is to shut down the PC. Restart to see what happens.


Then remove the HDD if this update cannot complete. Connect this disk to a different PC as a data drive using internal SATA data and power connections or connect this disk to a different PC using a SATA to USB 3.0 adapter.


Navigate to your user folder. Copy whatever data you need to the host PC or to an external drive.
