Your Windows 8 will not restart if your Registry Hives are larger than 2GB. Why?


  1. In Windows 8, maybe try getting to safe mode (troubleshoot–>advanced options–>command prompt), at command prompt enter ” bcdedit /set {default} safeboot network” for safe mode with networking or “bcdedit /set {default} safebootalternateshell yes” for command prompt, and maybe try downloading the hotfix once Windows starts after seeking less registry keys/drivers for startup; if something like that doesn’t work, you’ve indeed asked a great question!

  2. The KB article is not clear. I am guessing that in such cases, the system refuses to carry out the Restart operation. It may just shut down, and you would have to Start it again.
