    Hi! I've done this but I was also redirected to the part where it says "Getting Updates, checking for updates 0%" and there is no progress. Can you help me with this?

    Hoping for your suggestions. Thanks a lot!
    I just had that problem..

    I somehow got past that problem by stopping the windows update again, the same way as it says above ( win + R , services.msi , stop windows update service) and it works

    I think it's because the two updating services are banging into each-other and causing nothing to happen

    I hope it works, but I don't know much about this either

    Services.msc, windows update started again


    THANK YOU! That did it. 30 seconds later the screen changed and it went on.

    It hung at 22% and I looked at windows update and it was running again.
    Stopped it again and told it to be disabled until I set it back for delayed start after the upgrade.

    We'll see what happens.

    Almost immediately it was done and said do you want to install and save your files
    and now it is installing.

    Super suggestion. Just that it needed a bit more helping along.
    Thanks again.

    Note: I know the above is an old post but perhaps other people can benefit from this.

    Leave the Windows 10 Setup window as is and try this:

    1. Go to Services (Press Windows+R. This will prompt run dialogue box. In here, type services.msc) and stop the Windows Update Service.

    2. Go to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and delete all of its contents.

    3. Restart the Weindows Update Service.

    4. Go back to the Windows 10 Setup window and you should see the process continue.

    Hope this works for you!

    I had stuck with the same problem for a few days. Then only by chance I changed to another route to upgrade, it checked my pc and then told me that my pc didn’t have enough space on hard drive. Once I knew what was the problem, I made the needed room, and the upgrading went smoothly.
    So my suggestion would be: to get “Windows10Upgrade9194.exe” from Microsoft official site, try it instead of “Windows 10 free upgrade.exe”. It worked for me, hope it work for you.
    Good luck.

    Disconnect from the network, turn on Airplane mode. Once it figures out there is no internet it will move to the next steps
