Hi,

We’ve observed that some devices that have an SD bus with an SD card inserted while installing the Windows 10 November update will stop responding at 44%, and we are currently investigating the issue.

If your install is freezing at 44%, check if you have an SD card inserted and remove it, and the update should be able to progress beyond this spot.  If you needed the SD card for additional disk space, see if you have a USB/Mini-USB port available that you can use instead for the upgrade.  Otherwise, you may have to try freeing up some disk space off the hard drive.

If you're hanging at some percentage other than 44%, please create a new post.

My Win10 update stopped at 34%. I had no SD card installed; however, I did have an external backup HD plugged in. I removed the connection and nothing happened. Suggestions? HandyHank

My windows 10 update stops at 91%.

Once it stops, I have to shut down. On restart I am told that it will revert back to Windows 7 BUT it does not revert. I get a black screen telling me that windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software caused the problem. Status 0xc000000e. Needless to say there has been no recent changes made.

I have tried many of the suggestions I have read on line, without any  solution.

Has anyone else had this problem ? Can anyone help?

The insanity is aggravated by keeping finding and installing other updates that… had already been installed! In my case, Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3106246) was Successfully installed on 11/12/2015… four times! Meanwhile, Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3081704) Failed to install on 11/12/2015… four times!

I only blame… honestly, lack of proper training in the English language:

My update of November 10 stopped at 68%.  How can I start over and do one update at a time?

Unfortunately, "do one update at a time" is no longer possible in Windows 10, as it was possible in good old Windows 7. It was also great to hide updates that ill-behaved...

Do we know why Windows 10 does not allow one update at a time as in Windows 7? Thanks for the information.
