Hello! I haven't posted here in a while but I just had something happen to me that makes me extremely angry and I would like to vent, hopefully it's not a problem.
For the 1 almost two years I have been running various flavors of Linux on my machine, because I absolutely can't stand windows, it's a very big inconvienience for me. On Monday I decided I should partition my HDD and install Windows 7 because there's some Windows software I needed to use, here's what happened:
Monday at 5:30PM I begin the installation of Windows 7.
Monday at 8:00PM the installation finishes and it boots into a fresh Windows.
Monday at 5:40PM I install Chrome and browse the web for a bit, Windows update asks me to restart for update, I do (huge mistake).
Monday at 5:45PM Windows is completely broken because of Windows update, won't start. I boot into safe mode, it reverts to a time before the update, I boot back into normal mode and everything is fine and well.
Monday at 11:30PM I shut Windows down to go to bed, and see "Installing Updates x%" (something along those lines) and a spinning circle, I did not approve of this...
Tuesday at 4:00 PM I come home, boot up the computer, black screen again, Windows isn't booting. I try rebooting multiple times, nothing, safe mode, nothing, nothing, nothing nothing. Then I go into advenced boot options and try system restore and the option that's supposed to return it to a previous state before updates, none of them work, the one that's supposed to revert back sits for a few minutes and loks like it's doing something, gets nearly done and fails. There's nothing to do at all, can't boot into Windows at all, no safe mode, no working restore, NOTHING.
Tuesday at 5:15PM I'm reinstalling Windows and will be sure to disable Windows updates so I don't have to deal with this again, this is absolutely ridiculous. In my opinion any operating system that can completely break itself from updates it installed itself is not worthy to be on my machine, and has a serious issue. I strongly believe the reason Windows is still a thing is because of Microsofts money it can invest into tricking people and businessed into using it the best they can, this is like sitting down at a restraunt and being served poisoned food, it's insane.
