Remove a hotfix from an unbootable Windows 10 OS:
1. In the Windows 10 boot menu, go to Repair
2. Go to Tools > Options to get a command prompt
3. Confirm the drive letter for the Windows image (usually it is D:\)
4. Run
dism /Image:D:\ /Get-Packages
to view the installed packages along with their date of install and note the name of the rogue package.
5. Run the following command with the wanted package name -
dism.exe /image:d:\ /remove-package packagename:Package_for_KB4014329~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~
- and then just reboot the system normally!
