I'm having a problem and I'm not sure how to fix it. I ran the latest Windows 10 updates on my HP desktop, they seemed to download fine and install fine, but now when I start my computer I see the following messages in succession: "preparing automatic repair", "please wait while we install a system update", then the system BIOS update failed screen (see video below). This goes into an endless loop and I can't get beyond it. There was a BIOS Update under "optional downloads" on Windows 10 update assistant, I am 100% certain I didn't select it and have no idea why I am having a BIOS error all of a sudden. Anyone have any ideas?

Did you force the update?
The BIOS update? No, I don't even mess with that update, I tried installing it months ago and ran into similar problems, although in that case I was able to actually get to the desktop. Since then I don't bother with anything to do with BIOS.

As you had already quoted the above, I was referring to Windows updates.
Gotcha...I just did a standard install of the most recent windows updates, not sure of the KB numbers as I can't get far enough to see them unfortunately.

I'm hoping it won't come to that, but thank you for the link, good to know I have that option just in case.
