Windows 10: How long to check for updates? upgrading from win7 64bit
How long to check for updates? upgrading from win7 64bit
Switched over to a 120gb ssd today on my gateway NV53 and did a fresh install of windows 7 (downloaded ISO and installed from usb). I decided to update to win10 from the microsoft website. It downloaded and installed well, but now it's been stuck on the "check for updates" step for over 2 hours with no progress indicator.
The problem is that the version of Windows 7 may be several years old with Service Pack1. It is not uncommon to pick up around 200+ updates depending on the products installed in Windows 7. For example, if you installed Office 2010, Office 2013 or office 2016, it may pick up a few more fixes.
If I have a fully updated Windows 7, it will still take anyway from 15 to 30 minutes to check for updates depending on your system configuration and CPU. However, 2 hours is little too long.
Just be patient, it will finish anytime now! Cheer!
thanks for the reply. it's now approaching 4 hours checking for updates. i'm tempted to leave it on overnight and see if theres any change the next day.
Humble apologies if query as been asked before.
