    Built a computer for my grandson for Christmas. Installed Windows 10 from a OEM disc and then proceeded to do updates. This graph shows what that's like:

    A little bit of an exaggeration as it only took 12 hrs. with most of that after 90%.

    You should have started with the 1709 image. If you don't know what that means, you shouldn't be building and imaging Windows PCs.

    While I agree with what you say. If you are going to kick somebody in the balls why not at least help them do better next time by providing them with the below link. The instructions are easy to follow and you may have even got a Thank You from the original poster.

    Because that's not how things roll around here where the mantra is often, "Huh...You're Dumb!"

    The passive aggressiveness can be bit...um well, reminds me of an ex-wife.

    Sometimes you just deserve that reminder.

    I could not find my TSB thumbsticks, so decided to go the old fashion way. I did use the link posted above to do the update to the fall creators update (1709) and it went faster that than using windows update.

    If you know that 1709 is the Fall Creators Update you should be able to find in on the interwebz. If you don't know to start with the most recent full image, then perhaps you should seek assistance before imaging machines.

    Excellent advice.
