    Upgrade Install Stuck on "Checking for Updates"


    I've decided to upgrade my Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 10 with the free upgrade. Unfortunately, it has been stuck "Checking for Updates" for the last 30-45 minutes. Is this normal? I've updated two laptops, one Windows 7 Home and one Windows 8 and it didn't take nearly this long. I'm afraid I'm stuck in some kind of loop. I've searched the forum and couldn't find anything.

    Well, please disregard. It finally started installing.

    Don't give up. I started Win 10 upgrade on Sunday, 6th, and it took 16 hours for it to complete the "Checking For Updates" to finish. I was about to dump the PC and get a new one, when I yaken another look at the monitor and behold there it was...saying it had completed the updates. I finally finish the transfer last night about 7m

    "Checking for UpdateS" is just time wasted.


    Of the 6 or so machines that I have upgraded, I have never seen evidence of anything good coming out of "checking for updates" at the start of the install process. Provided you have a network card supported by Win10 natively (most are) so that you can do this after 1st Win10 boot, it makes more sense to do the upgrade offline.
