New versions of Windows 10 are delivered over the Internet. So, the time it takes will depend on the speed of your Internet connection, along with speed of your computer (drive, memory, cpu speed and your data set – personal files). An 8 MB connection, should take about 20 to 35 mins, while the actual installation itself could take about 45 mins to 1 hour. Times have been known to exceed 2 hours to 7 hours to all day depending on the configuration or the method used. I recommend users check if their system is supported by the upgrade and preferably use the ISO file to perform an off line upgrade. Also prep your system before upgrading.

"preferably use the ISO file to perform an off line upgrade"

Greetings Andre,

Could you be so kind and explain the rational behind upgrading to 1709 using the ISO file OFFLINE ?  

Does OFFLINE installation prevent interference from online sources?  Could you expound a bit on why offline is preferable?

Kind regards,

Wayne

Mine has taken over 24 hours...  What should I do?  Let it continue with the black screen?

Its been about 3 for me. im stuck at 15 percent im thinking of just turning the damned thing off.  its a ryzen 7 1800x super system and it gets hot as heck in my 1 bedroom living arrangement. I believe im doing ISO i dont know i got the black screen when i restarted and i waited and then a cursor came up an it was on 0 for like 30 minutes then i looked back at the other pc (my main rig) and it was at 15% but it has not moved since then. I started my upgrade around 1AM today its now 3:05am and its still at the updating screen :(

I pulled the plug, removed all periphery attachments, then plugged it in again.  Black screen resumed. Left for work, came back, still the black screen but eventually the process started.  

Can't say i understand why it "worked" but it did eventually.

So this persisted for nearly a day, despite you shutting the system down?
