    Hey guys,
    So I'm installing the latest build and it seems to be stuck in installing at 3% (Setting Up 8%). Is this just a really long install process or is there a problem?

    it took some time. I didn't pay attention and made myself a coffee. Eventually it finished after a few reboots. Instlaled mine from ISO (more info here.)
    hope yours continues and finishes.

    Thanks :) it's on 47% now. Just seems to be a very slow process. Nearly an hour at this stage..

    I guess I got impatient after 1/2 hour on 5% I hard restarted. Automatically reverted back to the original build but now I'm stuck - can't seem to get the update to reattempt the install. Keeps failing the update after I hit the retry in the update applet. Clearly its not re-downloading... but when I try to run setup manually I get an error about not finding boot.wim. Any ideas??

    Would appreciate if you would report back your final outcome. If successful, just slooowwww, I'll feel more confident that I just need to figure out how to get the update to reattempt. <kicking myself>

    For some reason it only uses 50% of my network bandwidth.

    Well I put my Aspire 5755G stay on to download new build and off to campus.

    Just hoping that it would be finished when I go back

    It finished, but did take longer than on my desktop. After it finished it also downloaded a firmware update from 1/15/2015. Not sure why I didn't have that yet.

    everything working fine after fixing Mail/People/Calendar. Except Norton Security, which is hosed both on desktop and the SPro now.

    The install takes a loooooooooooooooong time. It gets stuck at intervals for ~20 minutes at a time with no progress but it gets there eventually.

    Mine was stuck for about 2 hours at 30% so I hard restarted the PC, now I'm unable to redownload it. I'm trying varying measures. I'll let you all know when it works. I tried waiting but eventually realized that the "Applying PC Settings" being at 0% for that long meant nothing was happening.

    I just had to delete the update files and wait about an hour... Going okay so far.

    It may just be because of too much of traffic!
    So many people are trying to get this installed!
    Even I'm stuck at 5% currently!
    It's been more than 20 minutes now!

    I have an Alienware desktop and the update just seems to stop. PC is on but monitor is black . I have been trying to do this update for the past three hours. I finally just did a hard shut down and will try again tomorrow. This has not been an easy update at all! I am pretty frustrated at this point.

    I feel your pain. The videos say it should be easy but it's not easy at all.

    What is that file for and what happens if we can't get back into the system because we are stuck in the inbetween?

    I had the same problem, got stuck at several intervals for a long time and then finally stuck at 97% for several hours. I did a hard reboot and got back to Win7 but now Windows Update is broken. I can't find "windowsb" so I may just try downloading the .iso and going that route.

    Me too - standard Dell laptop running Win 7 and it just hangs (for over three hours) with a blank screen and no disk activity.
    I restored from an image, checked the disk, uninstalled some stuff, tried again, and exactly the same problem.
    And when I do a hard boot afterwards - it just goes straight to the same blank screen where it will remain forever.
    Complete waste of a day.
    Why didn't the programmers get it to realise a failed installation on reboot - and offer the option of recovery?
    I'm advising all not to touch Win 10 without a pre-image and only if they have 5 hours to spare !
