    I have a friend who has a Windows seven laptop and he is now downloading windows 10. The thing is it has been stuck on "Checking For Updates" for a while. (a few hours) Is this normal?

    Dear Mary Streeter,

    Maam,

    I had the similar issue.

    What you can do is-

    • Press Win + R key.
    • Type - "services.msc" without the quotes.
    • Locate Windows Update Service.
    • Right click on it and either click stop and then click on start. Or select restart.
    • Wait for it to restart and check your media creation tool window which will be stuck on checking for updates.
    Personally, I would recommend you to select the Upgrade This PC option.

    If it gets stuck at checking for updates do as I said(If required, do it several times).

    It worked for me and will definitely work for you too.

    Hoping the best for you.

    If I was late in replying, Sorry.

    This article is for Media Creation Tool.

    Media Creation Tool is NOT working

    Hi,

    There are several reasons why you're getting this issue on downloading Windows 10 using the
    Media Creation Tool. The most common are the network connection or the anti-virus firewall is enabled on your device.

    To resolve this, we suggest that you manually update the operating system instead of using the Media Creation Tool. Click on this
    link for the steps on how to update
    Windows.
