    Trying to install Windows 10 now. I think I might have messed up. I mounted the iso and it was going but now it's stuck at "keep your PC on until this is done. Installing update 1 of 4". Don't know how long it's supposed to take but it's been almost an hour. Don't know what to do. Don't want to just shut the computer down if it's still working.

    Edit: ended up force shuttin down. Now it's working on updates 19% so far. Blah hope it works haha.

    Edit 2: Everything looks good. Plugged the secondary drive in and it's perfect...everything is great! Thanks!

    Glad to hear. You have to be patient with a full install from an ISO. It takes 1.25 to 1.5 hrs from my experience. Yes, it's distressing when it looks like the Update is stuck at, say 30%, but then it will suddenly jump to 65% in the next step. You just have to patiently wait it out and not interrupt. Cheers

    Teh link given you in post 7 is to the latest ISO. It can be used at any time in the future too. If you downloaded after 8/2, you already have the latest major update-10 Anniv. There was a cum update issued 8/9 but it will be downloaded during installation or update.

    Again, if you are already booted in Windows, you can place the ISO on your desktop, mount and run the setup.exe, no need for usb or dvd burn.

    Check version after install by Run command/winver. Should be version 1607 Build 14393.51.... Good Luck and mark topic solved, if you are happy.
    Really liking this new version of Windows 10. I like the logon screen better and love that I can actually turn off my bluetooth in the notifications...last time it was always on and when clicked just took me to settings. Only think I don't like better is the start menu. I liked the old Windows 10 start menu...but I'll get used to it. lol
