    Windows will not boot after last upgrade

    On a laptop with Win 10-64bit at our seniors centre.

    Recent upgrade took a very long time due to poor internet connection. The last upgrade install ( about 2 weeks ago) , when system rebooted an error message comes up saying the update was not complete and to reinstall the upgrade. Problem is when hit Okay it justs reboots to the same place and and same error message. Can not boot into safe mode.

    Any ideas????
    Thanks Bruce
