    Upgrading a netbook

    Currently performing an upgrade on a msi wind u100 running Windows 7.

    I have a USB key and started the upgrade process. It asked to check for updates and I accepted. Now it's been checking for updates for two hours.

    Should I just cancel and restart the process?

    Oh just arrived to EULA terms and accepted, but now it is back to checking updates and it is stuck at 0% for 30 minutes. Oh well..

    That's why I usually uncheck the option to search for updates. You can always update it once Windows 10 is installed. You probably waited for every available Windows 7 update to download and install before upgrading to Windows 10. Waste of time since most updates of Windows 7 are build-in in Windows 10 and not necessary.
