    Nothing to worry. Whenever windows setup says "it looks like you started an upgrade and booted from installation media" ….. just press the power button until the pc turns off .Then plug out the usb drive whoch contains update package. Wait for 2 minutes. After that switch on the pc normally… the windows will start updating to the latest version as if it was downloaded by using media creation tool

    Hello my HP PC have been stuck in boot loop for a week, I have tried all other ways like trying to bring the troubleshoot screen but nothing happens it still goes back to boot loop,tried switching it off 3 times still goes to boot loop. I tried booting it from an installation media my 16 gb SanDisk USB and it gives me 2 USB options, one with UEFI and another just USB hard drive. When I try booting with the Option for USB hard drive UEFI it gives me a blue death screen, if I try the second USB option it gives me the message for "it looks like you started an upgrade and booted from installation media" so since I just want to upgrade not clean install, I remove the installation media and press yes for an upgrade as per instructions but after that it takes me back to boot loop. What can I do now? Please someone help.

      If the upgrade has problems, you have to cancel it by following the instructions on the article.

      Hi adam, try the following:
      1. Boot in Windows Recovery Environment and open command prompt.
      2. Run this command to check the windows drive for errors (where "Z:" = the windows drive letter):
      chkdsk Z: /F /R
      3. Then run this command to repair the system files (where "Z:" = the windows drive letter):
      4. Finally run the DISM command again (where "Z:" = the windows drive letter):
      DISM /Image:Z:\ /ScratchDir:Z:\Scratch /Cleanup-Image /RevertPendingActions

    Mine is also stuck in the loop of "Attempting to recover installation "& "Undoing changes made to your computer".

    I tried the suggestions including chkdsk and sfc, but when I run dism, it gives Error 87 RevertPendingActions is not recognised in this context.
