    windows 8.1 Update 1 Pro 64bit


    Install 5 updates at a time otherwise you will drive the computer nuts. If any of those 5 do not install, install one at a time for that batch of 5. Then continue with the next 5. Hide the optional updates for now.

    windows 8.1 Update 1 Pro 64bit


    10 minutes to download, depending on it's size, is not normal.
    How long to install?

    When you got this from the pawn shop did you reinstall Windows and if so, using what?

    I mentioned to install 5 at a time and you forgot to select the next batch. You will have to let it run now and hope they all get in. If they don't you will probably see a screen - Failure configurating updates and reverting changes. It will take a while so do not panic.
