    I have two machines that are doing the same thing. Windows 7 64 bit. Using the Media Creation tool to directly update (instead of through Windows Update).

    Anyone have any ideas?

    ]Hi ,
    I had the same problem upgrading a 64 bit Win 7, (brand new install), up to Win 10.
    Attempt 1 stuck at 99% for 12+ hours.
    Attempt 2 stuck at 99% for 13+ hours, (excluding the time it was in sleep mode - from the 29-07 to this morning 03-07)
    I have 'SNIPPED' images of the hung install window, all the Task Manager panes and the Internet History from Chrome since the Win 7 OS went live - plus control panel screens showing the computer configuration, System Basics, Device Manager and Action Centre - non of which suggest a problem or a possible solution as far as I can see - they can be made available if they would be of help.
    I have just saved all event logs that contain any event data.

    There are entries in the following log that may explain what is happening - hopefully data supplied will trigger an answer or a process I can employ.

    Event Log: Microsoft-Windows-WindowsUpdateClient/Operational
    * EventID 42 // Keywords 0x4000000000000480
    * EventID 42 // Keywords 0x4000000000000480
    * EventID 30 // Keywords 0x4000000000000001
    * EventID 42 // Keywords 0x4000000000000480
    * EventID 42 // Keywords 0x4000000000000480
    * EventID 42 // Keywords 0x4000000000000480

    My upgrade window is still hung at 99%.
    Hopefully the above means something to someone.
    I can supply full details if required.

    Had the same issue with two laptops I did two weeks ago. Both were Win 7 64-bit. I had to download the image onto a USB flash drive using the media creation tool and then run setup from it. When it prompted me to download critical updates before the install I told it no. After that the install went normally and I ran updates like normally when the installs completed.
