Slow slow slow update of Windows 10 Pro 5 hours and counting RRS feed

  • Question

  • This morning I started an update "called feature update something" for a Windows 10 machine.

    For the first 3.5 hours I could have used the machine if I had been really desperate to finish some work.  It would have been an epic battle with frustration because the machine is really not usable, but anyway I could have.

    That was just the downloading aspect then came the actual installation part. Now 5 hours into this ordeal the screen says "working on updates 19%.... this will take a while!". NS

    Apparently Microsoft engineers have plenty of time at the watercooler when updates hit, or they have found interesting ways to not be exposed to this idiocy.

    Please share Microsoft engineers......
