Solved Windows 10 upgrade from windows 7 hangs

September 18, 2015 at 13:12:00
Specs: Windows 64, 4mB
My win 10 upgrade is still running after 10 hours and I have blank screen except for cursor and there are still occasional signs of activity.
Can I shut it down and try again? or should I keep waiting?

Impossible for us to know what is going on with your comp.

If you have followed the basics of computing & have all your important stuff backed up onto another media, this is what I would do.

Download the install file, either from your comp or another comp & manually install W10.

Use Media creation tool & install llike a normal program.

Many thanks for your response.

After 30 hours I gave up and pulled the plug and shut it down.

Re booted and then it went correctly through the Win 10 set up process without hanging this time. Now properly set up and seems to work a bit better that Win 7 except that shutting it down leaves me having to boot up next time as the previous user - there are three user options on the PC.

I've found a way round this but it would be nice to have the choice of user at boot-up.

When it shows you a user as default on the desktop it is because it is the one you booted to last time. There is a little icon (I think it is on the lower left side) that will take you to an options screen that should show you other users and depending on how many users, there may be one for selecting 'other' users so you can type in the user name for additional options. I was not able to more clearly tell you where it is because I am using Windows 10 at work but still have Windows 7 in front of me now at home (for now at least).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
