W2K8 continuously rebots after Windows Update

    I ran Windows Update on Windows Server 2008 Web Edition 32-bit and selected
    all critical updates and pressed the Install button.

    Windows Update had downloaded 0 % even after 1 hour so I cancelled the
    update and restarted it again. Still didn't download so I restarted the
    server and after reboot it seemed to apply patches.
    Now every time the server reboots it says update 3 of 3 and then it
    continues to message "Wait for the Windows Modules Installer..." after a
    couple of minutes the server reboots and starts all over with update 3 of 3.

    I have tried to start the server both in Safe Mode and with "Last known good
    configuration" but the server just reboots.

    I cannot seem to find any info about this on the net, have someone else
    experienced this?

    Kind Regards,

    get the same answer. I was e-mail the same article and Method 3 did solve the

    It's horrible thought that a server continuously reboots after Windows Update.

    Anyway; Thanks.
