Aaaaaarrrggghhh, the pain to install Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Windows 10 anniversary updateMy dear wife said she’d a minor problem on her PC. Always happy to help. First task, carry out normal maintenance tasks. Thought it would be smart to install outstanding Windows updates, including the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

The word update is a total misnomer. It seems it’s a major Windows upgrade, therefore taking absolute ages to install, and apparently riddled with issues.

Why, oh, why, did I suspend my critical factors and install the darn thing. Have invested over four hours to get to 96% complete. When the pesky installation process ends, I’ve then got to check on things, and then ensure with my wife is happy. If we’re unhappy then it’ll be an urgent rollback – as it appears that a rollback is date limited. Ugh. Double Ugh.

UPDATE: Install has been stuck on 99% complete overnight. Am a most unhappy chappie.
