Win 10 Update took about 10 hours
« on: August 25, 2020, 01:30:07 pm »
So, I thought I probably should boot into the Win 10 of my HP Pavilion 360, 12 inch screen notebook computer and do an update.
I normally just run my Linux Distro and I don't boot into Win 10 on this computer, so it has been awhile since I booted into Win 10.

I started the update at around 2 am, went back to sleep, got up at 9 am and it was still in the process of updating. Went for my morning walk and got back home at around 11:30 am and it was still in  the update process.
It finally finished at around 12 noon and then I had to select numerous options. so that Win 10 was not spying on me, as much.

Now that I have got Win 10 updated, I will use Clonezilla to make an image of the hard drive and then I will clean off Win 10 and just have a Linux Distro, only, on this notebook computer.

Wow, that's pretty bad. Windows updating always annoys me but that would have me tearing my hair out. It was probably a feature update to install (or re-install) all that stuff nobody cares about. If it wasn't for games, I would have ditched Windows 10 entirely, too.
