If this hard drive was moved from one computer to another, it is likely not booting because of a hardware discrepancy. If you're using Windows XP, this is common when moving from a machine with a single-core processor to one with a dual- or greater- core processor. It also happens when moving from an AMD processor to Intel or vice versa.

First try to boot with last know good setting if this doesn't work boot into safe mode and choose a system restore point and then retry you update again. Always be sure your laptop is plugged in when installing or doing updates, since if the battery dies in the middle of an installation or update your stuck like this.

Northgate not booting correctly from HD


If you can't get it to boot from last known config, safe mode, or anything else, you won't get it to boot from CD. Sounds to me as if the HD has failed.
