    Anniversary Update stuck at 99%


    I went to bed last night when it go to abt 92%. Got up today and it's stuck at Getting the Update Ready - 99%. I got the update link here:

    Windows 10

    Should I kill the process and try again or a different site?

    Hold the Power button down 8-10 seconds or until the computer shuts down. Power it back up and the chances are very good that it will pick up right where it left off. I've had this happen to me a couple of times lately when downloading the Insiders upgrades and it corrected itself both times.

    OK, rebooted. After restart, a Win 10 Upgrade icon was on the desktop, so i ran the upgrade again. The download went quickly, the verification was fast, and it took about 20 mins to get to about 75% of the update. Then, it slowed down. It took about 20 mins for every 1 percent past 75, and gets slower the closer to 100 that you get. I'm at 97% now after six hours of the update...
    it may make it in a couple of hours????

    I've upgraded Windows ever since 3.1 on numerous computers, and I don't remember but a couple that went smoothly. You would think that some engineering effort would be put into a trouble-free upgrade???

    Sorry to hear that. I was hoping for a much better outcome. I don't understand what is happening there.

    Think of the billions and billions of variations there are of Windows computers, in terms of hardware, software, and driver revisions. It's impossible to upgrade 350 million PCs without some issues. What gets many of us riled up is when people mistakenly assume Microsoft is at fault. Besides, simple logic says, if everyone has a problem, blame the OS. If less than a fraction of 1% have an issue...then the OS is probably just fine. Including work computers, I've upgraded close to 50 computers of various ages and processing power. I haven't run in to a single issue yet. That would be impossible if Windows 10 was the problem.

    that didn't solve my problem... my latest upgrade got to 99% 2 hours ago and I'll prob wait all night to see if it ever takes. Just saying, in my experience, many upgrades of Windows have not gone without issue. No big deal.

    You can always download the ISO, mount it, and then do an in place upgrade keeping your data and apps. I had to do the with 2 of my 4 PC's. Remember to back up the disk just in case.

    I am guessing a normal download and install of the win10 AU should take about 1 hour unless you have slow internet. Long update times and stops at 9X percent is probably a good indication something has gone wrong. I have two computers over 10 years old with win10 July 2015 system and neither will take the win10 AU to successful completion.

    I'm having the same problem: the Windows 10 anniversary update got as far as 99% and has sat there for 10 hours now without moving. I guess there must be a problem with it. I'm leaving it running while I'm at work but if it hasn't progressed after another few hours I'll have to risk restarting. I wish Microsoft would put in some failsafe mechanism to give users recovery options if the installer has stalled for an unusually long time.
