    Update stuck 0% on brand new Notebook


    Hello. I have a Win8 notebook bought new some days ago.
    The problem is that when I try to update the OS with Windows Update, it stuck on "Download in progress" 0% for minutes and hours.
    I also tried to remove all useless process, also closing Anti Virus, except that of Windows with Msconfig, and also with a sfc /scannow, but nothing change. I tried with both Wi-Fi and wired connection.
    The notebook is an Asus F550CA XX135H.

    Is it the safe mode? How can I enter it? F8 before the boot doesn't work.
