    It just wasn't going to come back up. Something went terribly wrong. Used Advanced recovery Command Prompt to robocopy off files under users.
    holy heck, there's a ton of Junk this systems keeps that clearing browser temp files just doesn't clean up.

    It's possible a manual restore of Winlogon.exe or Csrss.exe would have fixed this... with the dirt on this system I decided to go the RESET route and totally clean house.

    I hope everybody's updates go better than this however, I did update a couple other Surfaces without issue.

    Note Robocopy wouldn't copy some files under a deep MSStore Directory which were just useless tracking garbage anyway so skipped them... :)

    Wow, bummer. Glad you got it sorted, but it blows that it happened at all.

    Something similar happened to me many months ago, when I very first went to Insider. My SP3 was all kinds of hosed, and I ended up just going back to 8.1 and waiting for a long time... :)

    Still installing the 74 updates... thankfully there must be some rollups in there, I was afraid it might be in the multiple hundreds... but it will be all cleaned and fresh just like new. :)

    You must have been very concerned about a 24 x 18 x 1/2 inch brick for awhile. Glad you're on the mend.

    Well I was premature in the number of updates, after the 74 there was 3 more followed by 34, then 1, and it's currently working on 122. Now, that's more like it :)

    Yes it is. More often than not, some updates beget more updates. I was waiting for the punch line. ;)

    I had a similar problem and as a matter of fact I have 1 more update to go (fingers crossed). I also did a full reset 4 times (annotating) the process at the 3rd & 4th times. So far it seems that I needed to remove the microsd card when I do this. I had the libraries pointing to the SD card instead of the C drive.

    Also, instead of installing all of the updates at one time. I did them in groups. So far this looks like a wrap.
