This update installed fine. I was able to restart my PC several times. Upon restarting after the third time, however, my PC boots Windows 7 in a loop. All I see is the Windows 7 Boot logo. I had to reinstall Windows 7 to fix the problem. And yes, my system was verified as genuine by the Windows Activation Technology Update. I was not even able to use System Restore. Microsoft please investigate.
My Specs:
HP Pavilion dv4-1225dx
AMD Athlon 64 X2 2.1 Ghz
AMD 780G Motherboard
ATI RADEON HD3200 Graphics
250 GB 5400 RPM HD
