hi I have windows 8.1 and it's been stuck trying to update for hours. The message that the screen is stuck on says "working on updates 86% complete don't turn off your computer" it has been on that screen for hours occasionally it will restart its self but soon as it reboots it's instantly on that screen again ...I have also tried a hard reboot hoping to maybe get in through safe mode but I am never given that option it instantly goes to this screen. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I might can resolve this issue thanks.

Unfortunately, I can't get into windows to do anything like that. I have no way of by passing the endless updating loop. When I restart my computer it instantly goes to the updating screen again giving me no options to get into windows.

Unfortunately I have tried that too. I have a ssd that boots instantly so the shift + F8 command that works in slower computers does not work on this computer.

I can enter uefi just fine by pressing f2 I just can't get into safe mode from there...is there a way to get in from there? I changed the boot time from 1 second to 10 so now there is plenty of time but still f8 does nothing and I can't find anything in the uefi that seems to indicate a way to get into safe mode.
