    Install stuck at searching for updates


    Installing Windows 10 directly on this pc from media creation tool. When it gets to 'searching for updates' it gets stuck a 0%. Any thoughts? Thanks!!

    Make sure the PC has internet access. For instance on mine, I don't have internet until I've installed the driver.

    Apologies but you may have been desperate enough to have been on a tablet

    Have you had an email saying "Windows 10 for you is on the way and you are in the queue" yet?

    I just cleaned out the Software Distribution folder and will give it a try once more.

    c:Windows\SoftwareDistribution

    This time it got beyond the searching... all by itself without my doing anything. Now let's see how it all ends.
