Vista sp 1 intallation step 3/3 loop -- solution


At step 3/3 it may get into a loop and will never come out with out manual intervention.

The screen always read "- do not shut down the computer - step 3/3 installation is going on -" Even if you restart the system you won't be able to get out of this.

Checkout The Solution :

Go to the command prompt by pressing F8 twice (available on recent versions only ) or with recovery disk. You can download the recovery disk in .iso get it on a cd and able to boot from the cd.

cd c:\windows\winsxs

del pending.xml or

del pending*

reboot the system
