    Hello Bo, :)

    It's good to hear from you again.

    The Windows 10 Update Assistant will check to see if your PC is able to install the latest version of Windows 10 first. If any issues are found, it'll let you know and not proceed to update if they may prevent a successful update.

    If the download is interrupted, you will most likely need to start over again. Once downloaded, you should be good to go though.

    If you lose electricity during the update, then the update could fail or pick up where it left off when the PC powers up next. It's a 50/50 chance, but no guarantees. There's also a chance that the installation will be completely corrupted resulting in having to do a clean install.

    Since you do have unreliable power at times, it would be best to back up anything you do not want to lose first to be safe.

    Hi Brink, I been coming around and read a lot from here. I just changed File explorer to open This PC :)

    What I have is a laptop, new battery. Supposedly should last 9 hours. Since the laptop keeps working even if electricity goes out, if lights goes out during the update, after downloading, does the updating process itself also requires internet as well as electricity. It it needs both, then I should wait for MS. What you think?

    You'll be good to go then. It normally will not take anywhere near that long to update.

    I am downloading now, is at 61 %, about 1% a minute. I am writing this is my W7, You said, "It normally will not take anywhere near that long to update°, you mean, the update after downloading should be around a hour and a half.

    The download time will depend on your bandwidth, but yeah it can sometimes take around an hour or so for the actual update to install and completely finish.

    Brink........I survived. All looks well so far, I see a lot of settings changed by the update, including the restoring of Windows photo viewer. The system seems stable (15063.483).

    Regards
