    Updating your system (100%)

    Walked into the office to see a black screen and spinning wheel. Checked about 15 minutes later, and had the message mentioned in the title of this thread, with spinning wheel. There was a blinking hard drive light, not flickering but just slowily blinking, but thereís been nothing now for about 15 minutes. I donít even know what update this is because...well...we have this screen.

    Is this normal for the ĎOctober updateí to be taking a lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng time to install? At what point do I hard boot and hope I can get back into Windows?

    Posting this from an ipad. I havenít had a scary looking thing like this since I installed 10 on a laptop (not this one) running 8.1.

    Itís been at least an hour, probably about 30-40 minutes with this non responsive stuck behaviour. I would like to know if itís safe for me to attempt a hard shut down.

    C’mon, guys, please? All I want to know is if this is normal for this particular update. Has this happened to anyone else?

    The October update has been temporarily withdrawn. Both of my Windows 10 computers received an 1803 cumulative update, which required a restart, but installed without incident.

    Ok, I just forced a shutdown. Weíll see what happens. Thanks, Ben.

    I had no hard drive activity at all. Iím just trying to boot Windows now. At least the hard drive light is on.

    Now Windows is saying It couldnít complete the updates and it is undoing the changes, and donít turn off your computer.

    Not sure what the problem was. I donít have third party security software installed.

    At least this time the hard drive light is on.

    Got my desktop back. Windows installed MSRT, but an update to 1803 failed to install. I just wanted to know if was normal for it to sit at 100% like that. I’ll try again another day. Or, knowing Windows, it will try for me.

    Again, thank you for responding, Ben. I’m going to mark this solved.
