HP laptop stuck on Failure configuring Windows updates

My HP laptop is stuck on Failure configuring windows updates, reverting changes, do not turn off your computer blue screen.  

The system would not configure after installing microsoft office.

The system will not go to the desktop so all the suggestions about system restore and fixes via the desktop are impossible.  

No matter how many times it try's, it restarts, goes to the HP screen, and goes back to the blue failure configuring windows updates  screen.  

The system came preloaded with Windows 8, so no boot disk available.  

Anyone please help

There is actually a document published by Microsoft for this exact issue.

Do not turn off your computer" error when y....

 

I look forward to your reply! 🙂

None of the current board answers are helpful. I don't have a disk and cannot get past the blue screen message to select any options.

You can get the REcovery disk you have to order them from HP and then use them to restore you system back.

Obtaining HP Recovery Discs or an HP USB Recovery Drive
