    Can you get back into the Start Up Recovery?

    Try restarting and holding the F8 key or ESC or DEL key or it may flash on the screen at boot up.

    Before that though, can you just force it to turn off and on again?

    Cue an IT crowd meme :P.

    But yeah, that would be a good place to start lol.

    @OP.
    Also more info would be helpful, as in what updates did you install prior to restarting (if you can recall).

    It could've been just an error that was a one time fluke. I'd come back if it becomes a recurring problem.

    as I've said, it happens to me occasionally when setting up a new Windows install. I'd try again or leave it be for a day or two. Failures or things usually resolve themselves.
