    Massive Windows 10 Update Has Three Nasty Surprises

    I was in a hurry to get the update but now I'm afraid to turn on my win 10 laptop in case it does upgrade, LOL

    Nasty Surprise #1: The 44% Bug

    Users have been reporting installation issues with Threshold 2 and a common topic spotted by InfoWorld is that it gets stuck at the 44% mark. User Waseemulla S asked about this in the official Windows Forum and Microsoft moderator Softie Anannya Podder explained it may be to do with SD card issues:

    “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.”

    Until Microsoft fixes this issue removing any external media is a decent workaround, but those who use an SD card to make up for a lack of disk space will face problems. Threshold 2 requires 20GB of free space for the installation and that may prove a lot to free up.
