I installed 3 recommended updates yesterday and upon restarting, I immediately got a Windows Boot Manager Screen with the error below:
"Windows Failed to Start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
Info: An error has occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.
The 3 updates queued to install were:
This morning I was trying to troubleshoot the error using this thread and my Windows 7 installation disc, but to my surprise the Startup Repair utility actually was able to automatically repair itself and perform a System Restore to the point before installing the updates. (I had tried this last night but it said it was unable to repair the issues - I think this was because I forgot to disconnect my second SSD drive, which I read can cause issues)
I have since backed up any of my data that was not up to date and proceeded to install the updates one-by-one. Both KB890830 and KB4474419 installed successfully without any issues, but upon restarting after installing KB4512506 the computer immediately boots to the Startup Repair utility and performs a System Restore.
For the time being, my workaround is that I've hidden update KB4512506 so it doesn't install itself automatically. Has anyone else encountered this error with this or another update? Is it just this update itself that's causing the issue? My Windows installation is only about 5 weeks old as I just did a clean install.
