KB3185330 Windows 7 Update failing

If KB3185330  is failing to install and keeps getting rolled back, chances are your machine is dual-booting Linux and uses GRUB as a bootloader.

Only way I could get the patch to install was to directly boot from my windows drive (F12 at boot to select drive) – I have Linux & bootloader installed on a separate drive.

If the bootloader is on the windows drive I can’t see any other fix than to wipe it, apply update & restore bootloader (tools that may help).
