    1803 update stuck at %42

    I'm on a Lenovo laptop with dual graphics card. I didn't experience a single major Windows 10 update stucking after some time and 1803 is no exception.

    I have tried disconnecting USB devices, disabling anti-virus & firewall, clearing update cache, running SFC, DISM, WUA etc. but still it stucks at %42.

    Why every major update is problematic for me? I don't want to do a clean install again.

    You've done everything but disable the graphics card that isn't native to the laptop, my thought is it falls under the criteria of attached devices like USB. And please excuse me if you purchased the laptop with dual cards, your system specs don't show that.

    What is the setup; Do you have integrated graphics with a separate card? Just disable the separate card and let the integrated run. Then run 1803.

    You can open the task manager and check the c: drive and internet connection sections in the performance tab to see if its actually doing anything.

    That's what I did, it was downloading very very slowly,, 24 Kbps was lowest, highest was 3.0 Mbps.

    It might have been due to heavy load on Microsoft's servers yesterday. Have you tried again today?

    Hi there

    It does take a long time on some laptops
    servers shouldn't be a problem once the program starts installing as you've already got the update on HDD.

    Also make sure there is sufficient available space on HDD('s) as if there isn't you'll get the dreaded Update failed with that error code - can't remember it though.

    You need enough space for V.S.S and windows old (what the system tries to allocate rather than what is finally used).

    If it bombs out increase the windows partition size or make available space on other partitions / HDD's. You can decrease these after install / update success.

    Sometimes if it's stuck for a long time simply re-boot again -- you might have to go though that saga a few time before it finally works though.

    The most important thing is that there is sufficient free space on HDD's.
    To change partition sizes without losing data use either a Linux live distro with GPARTED or amy Windows bootable partition manager.

    GPARTED is quite simple -- and works from USB -- Partition magic or similar I believe can't run from a USB though (paid version will). GPARTED if you are uncomfortable with Linux runs also as a stand alone bootable program - download iso and create USB via Rufus. The Interface is no problem for windows users.

    The heavy load was probably what was happening to my update. When it started preparing the install to the last restart it took 2.75hrs to get back to my desktop, then for another 10" it threw three teaser screens up extolling the virtues of the new version before I could start using my machine again.

    Although for different reasons it reminded me of the GWX era of Win7 updates.
