So today I went ahead and installed some windows updates, and while they were installing I went downstairs to eat dinner and came back to my computer not being able to start up at all.

The computer starts up but flashes a blue screen and just restarts, I went ahead and turned the auto restart off and the blue screen in the above link is what I'm getting. I've also tried to do a startup repair, but just hangs on that black screen, I've waited about an hour several times..
I've also tried to reinstall windows via bootable flash drive, but it also hangs on the setup is starting window, I've also tried that several times for several hours. I've also tried to repair it via bootable flash, but it does the same thing as the normal startup repair and hangs on that black screen.
Does anyone have any idea of what to do?
I have no touched the bios at all, I'm telling the truth about installing some windows updates, and came back about 30 minutes later to my computer acting like this. It also won't boot in safe mode.

I couldn't actually but I finally got it to work after trying just about everything I could find with Google. Nothing anyone was saying was working, but I eventually noticed a pattern, all the problems with chkdsk, that disk check from Seagate, ect, it was all messing up while trying to access D:, so I went ahead and ran format D: my using my USB stick with windows on it and pressing shift+ f10. It got stuck at 58% for about an hour so I decided to just turn my computer off. Came back to it about 30 minutes later and decided to try to reinstall windows yet again, and to my surprise, it freaking worked.

You should run another full chkdsk to check out the hard drive.

I need to see the dump file created when you bsod in order to debug it.
Really man, read the other comments. I clearly state I've already fix the problem.
