    Update hung at 30% for 6 hours

    My laptop was updating to the latest preview build today, and has hung at 30%.

    I had to go out and when I got back 6 hours later, it is still hung at 30%.

    Is there any chance that it will actually complete the installation if I just leave it overnight, or is this as far as it's likely to go?

    If it's the latter, I would be grateful for any recommendations in what to do to minimise damage?

    30% is just before it reboots for the first time. You could hard power off and then restart and it may carry on. It isn't going to continue if it has been stuck for 6 hours so you need to hard power off anyway at some point.

    Whether it completes or not (it might roll back) you should still have the download files to make an ISO as described here ESD to ISO - Create Bootable ISO from Windows 10 ESD File - Windows 10 Forums

    Thanks for your reply, adamf, currently rolling back.

    I will create the ISO, thanks for the advice.
