    Windows 10 update 1703

    I found this update this morning. It has been "installing" now for 3 hours and sees to be in a loop where it shows Dowloading Updates, Preparing to install updates, then goes back to Downloading Updates. Is this a loop or wilI it complete?

    When I upgraded to 1703 a few days ago, there was an initial download that downloaded the majority of the updates, then it seemed to do some installation/preparation, then it downloaded some more. I surmised that the secondary download was probably the latest updates to 1703.

    Still, your post was over five hours ago, so I suppose my reply is probably moot by now. Hope it worked out for you, though.

    After leaving the machine on overnight to let update run automatically it finally completed taking nearly 6 hours. Obviously I need more patience

    Is it just me or is Windows becoming a behemoth? With so many variations they could at least cater for those that have lesser bandwidth... Smaller ISO (no store stuff .. and just security updates)
