    Probably Windows try to find drivers for some device and cannot. I recommend to disconnect all peripherals (printer, gamepad, external hard disks etc), expansion cards (TV, audio etc) and any extra drive. Leave only the DVD-ROM, the Windows hard disk, the graphics card (if discrete) connected. Then try to install Windows 10 again. After a successful installation you can reconnect your devices and install drivers for them.

    I was stuck at that exact same % of progress for 4 hours before it finally started to move again. It did eventually go though so maybe wait overnight and see what happens.

    Maybe it scanned the disk for errors. If the disk as bad sectors it can take a long time to complete. Check your disk with a diagnostic tool (such as Seatools for Seagate or Western Digital Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for WD) and if problems found consider replacing it. If the problems are not too severe you could be able to clone it to a new disk to save you the trouble of reinstall everything.
