Automatic repair processing loop error

HP Recommended
Pavilion 360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a three year old ho pavilion 360 laptop that will not boot up. It just reads”automatic repair processing “ when starting up. I have tried to reset by pressing F9 but that just hangs . I also tried checking systems by pressing F2 and everything comes back fine. Don’t know what else to do

Unfortunately, that nearly always means that a recent Windows Update failed and Microsoft then tried to recover from that, but that failed, so it's trying over and over again -- and will never succeed because Windows Update got corrupted in the process.

These problems were reported with KB4532693 back in February of 2020, and more recently, with KB4556799. Unfortunately, this is NOT a new issue with Win10 Windows Updates.

First thing you need to do is see if you can restart in Safe mode -- by doing these steps: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2304-boot-into-safe-mode-windows-10-a.html

If you don't know how to start using Advanced Startup Options, then read this: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2294-boot-advanced-startup-options-windows-10-a.html

Then, follow these steps to reset Windows Update: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/24742-reset-windows-update-windows-10-a.html

If these work, when you finally reboot, you should then be able to login to a working Windows desktop.
