Here are two links that address how to solve, one by using Edit and one by using updater. Remember

  • Pick one ore the other. You can't run Updater and Edit at the same time.
  • If you reinstall your edit (I have a habit to uninstall the old version and install a fresh one...) do not uncheck any boxes, just click next untill installed. 
  • As you have a laptop be sure that it's going to sleep during the the update, set power management so it's stay on all the time. On my PC (not a lap top) I have turned of power saving and double checked that the USB-ports are not allowed to be powered down)

Here is two links that probably address your problem

  • From Datacomando - 
  • From SaschaFranck - 


If you make a forum search on eg "Boot Failure" you will find a numerus of threads addressing this (also som more tips what to do) and the solution cooks down to the two above.


Hope it helps. //Per
