Configuring updates: Stage 3 of 3 - 53% complete. Do not turn off your computer - endless loop

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by Hii Sing Chung, Jul 1, 2008.

  1. It is quite easy to reproduce this problem on my Proliant DL360 G5. After
    installing Windows 2008 Enterprise, and enable Hyper-V, then doing Windows
    Updates, the next restart will bring the server into forever loop at
    "Configuring updates: Stage 3 of 3 - 53% complete. Do not turn off your
    computer". I have to force power off to end it but when the computer start
    up again, it will go back into this loop. Doing a Google search, I found
    other people are also facing the same problem, so it seems to be a serious
    bug in Windows 2008. Has there been any solution yet?

  3. The methods in KB949358 can break the loop but can't solve the problem. I am
    not able to remove the Hyper-V role, neither can I use it. In the server
    manager, when you open up "Roles", it says "Roles: Error". When I clicked on
    Error Details, it popup a dialog: "Unexpected error refreshing server
    manager: Catastrophic failure (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8000FFFF
    (E_UNEXPECTED))." When I opened up Hyper-V Manager, and clicked on Virtual
    Network Manager, it says "There was an error enumerating the machine's
    network switches. Make sure the Hyper-V networking service is installed and
    working properly."

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950792/en-us mentions about this problem and
    saying the cause is HP Network Configuration Utility, but I checked my
    server never have HP Network Configuration Utility installed.
