Windows 10: Probably the strangest case you've ever heard

    Probably the strangest case you've ever heard

    So I've had this issue upgrading Windows 10 getting frozen on certain % at any random time. But, this time I decided to look at my hard drive activity LED. If i move my mouse which is in the 3.0 slot which I didn't even install drivers for, the light goes on for 5-30 seconds and stops.
    The thing is though, when it stops blinking, it won't start again until I move my mouse. Mind you, I once left it on 0% for 7 straight hours with no progress. Here I am now, 10 minutes in, with 10% I know this may seem sketchy, but it's the truth, and ib won't argue with it.

    Have you tried to put the Mouse in a "standard" USB slot.
    There might be an interrupt issues on the bus that is driving both the USB 3.0 port and your hard drive?

    Good luck with upgrading

    I believe it. I was trying to install Windows on a laptop and the BSOD twice aborted the install. I then noticed a Microsoft USB mouse dongle in one of the USB ports. I wasn't using the USB mouse during the install, so I removed the USB mouse dongle and tried the install again. The third time, the Windows install went flawlessly. The BSOD during Windows install seemed to be caused by that Microsoft USB mouse dongle being in place during the install.

    USB3 drivers may not kick in in time or may even not install at all depending on computer model. On a laptop it's better to disconnect all the USB devices before installing/upgrading OS, you can always plug it in later. With wireless devices it's even more critical because of it's drivers.
    So your problem may not look strange at all.
