After getting high-speed internet at home I started on the backlog and it has restarted several times.
I went for a walk with one of the most recent security updates pending at 70% and another downloading I believe January 2020 but I didn't take a screenshot before the computer bricked.
When I came back inside the computer was restarting from the blue screen as normal, but when it came back on the BIOS says that there is no hard drive installed, no operating system detectable and memory tests register nothing.
Nothing else has been changed on the machine.
I'm using an ancient Windows 7 machine to download a USB Windows 10 boot disk but I don't want to risk a erasing racing the hard drive if I use it.
