    It's a small update on this.

    The installer was so slow I had to leave it running overnight.
    i checked the next morning and it was stuck at 78%

    so i restarted the pc and restarted the windows 10 upgrade tool.
    The bloody thing stopped at 99%

    i thought it it must be a slow process so I left it going overnight again and in the morning it stated this version of windows is not genuine blah blah blah.

    So reactivated and started again.
    nope not a fucking chance bastard things hangs at 99% every time then gives me non genuine message.

    So fuck it it's on 8.1 and that's how it's going to stay.

    99% is a thing with Windows 10. Some have said it's taken 48hrs to complete on older systems. I've not experienced it myself though.

    He he he
    I beat you
    After reading this thread I started the "upgrade" to win 10 on my revo under the telly which sat there doing sweet FA for 5 hours 'til I stopped it.
    Started my "reserved download" again, only to be told told that wasn't gonna happen as my reservation was for nothing more than a bloody long wait as far as I can tell.
    Started again with the assisted tech download which took about a 36hrs to do its thing and about another 12 hrs to install the updates.
    Yay I thought win10 done, SAB, tag and Kodi time
    Put Kodi 17 on from the store - took Kodi 17 off cos MS have changed the file locations.
    Went back to Kodi 16 and dropped my appdata and addons folders in - tested a few addons and found plexus and acestreams wouldn't work. Then fannied around trying to get acestreams to integrate with Kodi and plexus for a few more hours to no avail.
    Downloaded some stuff from the newsgroups with SAB which hit a max dl speed of about half what I used to get on Win7.
    Tried tagging up my downloads with Ember, which may have been doing something but I got fed up looking at it saying it was updating the library after about 2 hours tbqh
    Not to worry tho, I thought, Kodi does that doesn't it? No, not for me. It only added about a third of my downloads to the library so I have to locate them via the file browser if I want to play them (or add them them manually the same way).

    So after 3 days solid, it's worse than when I started ffs and I'm torn now between a fresh install of win7 or win10 or retiring the revo and picking up a droid box for the job.

    Haha this takes me back. My revo took 4 times. The first 2 it sat for hours and hours until like you guys-I stopped it. The third time it installed fine and I thought finally. Making my way through testing when I realised there was no sound. Windows had stuck on the newest catalyst drivers from amd which were not supported by the little revo's graphics card. After numerous roll backs, uninstalls and random fixes-still no sound. Fresh install of 7 with the catalyst that worked (15.something I think) then upgrade to 10 (again) and it seems to be fine.

    I think the revo is nearing the end of it's working career-I certainly don't want to do that again. That said ssd and win 10 it boots super fast, so at least it's going out gracefully.

    What spec PC is it ? You should be done in an evening tbh mate. Check that no other messages are hidden behind the windows upgrade app, on the desktop waiting for your input.
    There maybe a message waiting for you to click "ok reboot"

    Yes thats the entire image as an iso. Download to your desktop, and extract the iso using winrar or 7zip. Then run the setup via the roll back method

    Something with your system is stalling the install. Before wiping (I bet you have now) you should check the setup.log.

    It'll give you an idea what it's tripping up on.

    Right talk about stress.

    Formatted drive installed Xp then installed 7 as a dual boot and upgraded to 10 using the ISO download. (Cheers Josweet)
    Now running XP and dual booting 10 yay
