Windows 10 update

Latest update in progress, 55% complete, 45 minutes after starting update. Is this typical?

It's not untypical. The last update I did took around an hour on a Ryzen 7 1800X processor!
I must have been really bad in a previous life. This is my 3rd ISP in a row that uses lithium.

Re: Windows 10 update

If it's the version update 1703 (which is being rolled-out quite gradually) then 55% after 45 minutes is good going.

Re: Windows 10 update

The 55% after 45 mins could be a red herring, as it is doing multiple restarts during the updates. I can't say any more about how long it took as I had to leave it running when I left home. Hopefully it's finished by now.

Re: Windows 10 update

If it's doing multiple restarts then it's almost certainly the 1703 version update.  This (and other previous version updates) take an age to complete.

It was the Creator's update.

If it's the Creator update then that's why its taking a time. The download is several GBs before it starts to install.

Re: Windows 10 update

My wife's laptop has been trying to install an update for at least 3 hours, and is still going - it looks just like one of the weekly updates that you get at bootup, which she started before she went to work (which she did before I came home). Therefore:-

(1) How do you identify which update it is?

(2) If it is this Creator thing (or was that a joke), how long will this take?

(3) Although it says do not power down, should I power down anyway, and try to restart it?

My unreliable memory tells me this same type of problem came up for me a few months back. I have tried searching for old topics that I started to see if the answer to Q3 is there already, but so far I haven't found it. Is there a way to get Search to find my old topics?

Thanks and regards

Re: Windows 10 update

Its okay, my crisis is over. I found the old topic that covered the same problem, and used the same solution again (successfully).
