    Checking for updates in win 10 pro upgrade from microsoft


    Have a PC with Windows 7 Pro installed. Decided to do the free upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. Everything went fine until the download came to the section CHECKING FOR UPDATES?? AfterFOUR HOURS the download was still checking for updates?? That's what I did yesterday. Today, still the same checking for updates and four hours later still checking for updates. I upgraded two other machine from Windows 7 Pro and there was no checking for updates in either of those upgrades?

    Anyone have the same problem??



    :)

  3. Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 are eligible for the free Windows 10 upgrade. What about Windows 8 !!!.

    I am getting confused reading on different web sites who is eligible for the free Windows 10 upgrade at the end of July, 2015 when Microsoft releases it.

    Back on 10/26/2012, I purchased from Microsoft the promotional WINDOWS 8 Pro they were offering for $39,99.

    Whit this Win. 8 Pro purchase, I was able to update my Win.7 Home Premium to Win. 8 Pro.

    I just finished getting my computer prepared and ready for this Win. 10 free upgrade release.

    By: 1) Installing my Win. 7 Home Premium.

    2) Upgrading my Win. 7 Home Premium with the $39.99 Win. 8 Pro Upgrade that I purchased from Microsoft.

    This I think would qualify me for the free Win. 10 Pro upgrade.

    Or do I have to get from the store the free Update to windows 8.1 Pro.

    But then again I am not certain.

    Checking for updates in win 10 pro upgrade from microsoft

    Hi, I wouldn't (and didn't) do the upgrade that way personally. I'd download the iso (once) and create a bootable medium. Then I'd do the upgrade (without checking for updates at that time).

    Once Win 10 was installed (and I'd therefore shown there was no conflicting program/driver/ boot problem...) then I'd do the update.

    Why? I wouldn't wish to waste time downloading and then find it didn't work - or got stuck as in your case.

    Further, I'd have the bootable install medium in hand for either
    - reinstall
    - use on another PC
    - an in-place upgrade repair install (see Tutorial section if you don't know what that is- it's a significant benefit in Win 10
