    How long for feature update to Windows 10 version 1709 install

    Does anyone know how long it should take for the feature update of Windows 10 version 1709 to prepare to install on a PC?

    My own installation, courtesy of Windows Update, has taken about 90 minutes and is only 30% prepared to install.

    Can anyone advise?

    Hi Mr. Morgan. Some have reported hours on i5 processor and others have reported one hour.

    My PC has an i5 processor, so I expect it will be a long wait.

    Just running an update on Windows 10 (1709), it's taken about 1 hour (download and install).

    Does anyone know if the installation of version 1709 can be terminated at all? and id it possible to prevent re-installation in the future?

    I would not terminate it or attempt to terminate it unless I had my data backed up, bootable media on hand or an Image created with a tool like Macrium Reflect.

    I have not terminated it, nor will I. Now at 32% anyway.

    Mine took 4 hours. I am not kidding.

    I think mine will take about twice that, simply to 'prepare to install'. Who knows how long installation will take?

    With multiple millions of people updating at the same time that is to be expected I guess. After an hour my old machine is barely half way.

    I'm glad my Linux boxes are so so much faster at updating.
