FUCK WINDOWS UPDATES (Windows Sucks)
I recently purchased an Asus X550CA for £400.
It came preinstalled with Windows 8.
As normal users do, I went ahead and installed some updates.
All seems to be going well then "FAILED TO CONFIGURE WINDOWS" comes up and doesn't go away an hour later, but the laptop has rebooted a lot during this time.
So I force restart, still the same crap comes up. It turns out the ONLY way for me to recover my Windows installation is to REFRESH MY PC. (Delete everything off it)
So I did. As soon as my laptop refreshed, I disabled all updates, however somehow they turned themselves back on and I'm back at fucking square one.
FUCKING FIX YOUR SHITTY UPDATES MICROSOFT.
I'm seriously considering installing Mac OS X (Hackintosh) on my laptop. At least Macs don't have this bullshit.
