Windows 10: BSOD after Nov 16 automatic update
BSOD after Nov 16 automatic update
My wife's computer, a Lenovo x130e, came with Win 7 pro installed. I upgraded it to Win 10 back in April, while the upgrade was still fee. It has worked fine since then, automatically updating, even the anniversary update. However, that came to an end on November 16 when the most recent update installed, or tried to install. When she turned off the computer, she got that message that updates would be installed and then the computer would shut down. She said it ran for hours and was still processing something when she went to bed. The next morning the computer was off. When she tried to start it, she got a bsod with the following message:
you pc/device needs to be repaired.
the operating system couldn't be loaded because a critical driver is missing or contains errors
file: windows\system 32\drivers\ACPI.sys
Error code: 0xc0000225
You'll need to use recovery tools. If you don't have an installation media (like a disc or usb device) contact you pc administrator or pc/device manufacturer.
since i am the husband, and by default the pc administrator, she dumped it in my lap. there is no installation media and the only backup she ever made was when win 7 was installed. I have no idea where to begin, so rather than mucking around and possibly eliminating any chance of ever getting this thing running again, I came here for advice.
Thank you for your help.
You can try following this tutorial to do a System Restore, see if that resolves the problem.

Read thorugh it then come back with any questions.
Thanks for your reply. I ended up doing that, but it was not as nifty to get to as it would seem. I had used the Media Creation utility to download Win 10 to a thumb drive back in April to force the Win 10 upgrade on this machine. I inserted that drive and started the machine, hit Enter to stop the process and got a screen that gave me several Advanced options. Tried them all with no luck, then went back to try the Restore with all of the remaining Restore Points. After that failed 5 times, the 6th was the charm, good thing to, only had one Restore Point left. After a bell rang, the Start screen came up and I was off and running. After the machine searched for updates for 3 hours, I installed the updates and all was back as it should have been initially. Still got to find out why this machine takes forever to find and download updates. Wife tells me it has always been that way. Tells me her iPad is instant on and updates are never a problem. Arrrgh. Back to the workbench, ran MBAM and Super Spyware. Removed several pieces of crapware, PlayTV and Raster, some improvement, but still got a ways to go. How does Apple do that instant start bit?

Glad System Restore worked for you finally though. Might want to use CCleaner, Tools, System Restore to delete all the old restore points except the one that worked, then make sure System Restore (System Protection actually) is enabled and create a new restore point.
Hello, I just wanted to say here on the forums that making the Windows update restart my computer automatically, no matter what, is ridiculous. The last time the update had restarted my computer while I was using it, I went and put the settings to...
**** you, Windows 10.
I had put two hours of work into that Word doc since my last save, and had to run out of the house to pick someone up from work whose car had failed. Even typing this post, my text was autosaved. But your Word document?...

Argh! Need help!
Windows 10 installed and have an Nvidia grfx card which caused a problem with the driver which I managed to get round. Been using Windows 10 quite happily, until today.
PC crashed not long after boot. Last thing I remember...
