    Bring the menu up that you can select the boot mode from and change the setting for restarting upon error. That might not be exactly what it says but you'll know what option it is :)

    Then when the pc usually restarts, hopefully it will stop and show an error screen.

    See here, except instead of enabling boot logging, select the "Disable automatic restart on system failure" option

    Hi kenshin954

    I now have the same problem you hade. Im using Vista and it keeps restarting while the PC is doing a update, its doing the same thing when I try to get in to safe mode.

    Have you solved your problem and if, how?

    Regards
