The update downloaded normally, but during the "Preparing to install updates" phase I was forced to put my computer in sleep mode cause I had work in the morning.
The next day, the computer ended sleep mode normally, while the "Preparing to install" phase took a while to wake up, but finished with no problems.
I've had the update process go well up to this point, but now the process has hanged on a black screen with loading wheel, post boot-logo.
I'm fearing that holding the power button to shut it down will just kill my laptop for good. I've been waiting since 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
Computer in question is a Toshiba Satellite S55-C5274. Got it 2 years ago at an OfficeMax.
Update: Holding the power button for a shut down and restart resulted in an attempted and successful recovery of the installation process. Progress is at 33% at the time of this edit.
Second update: The Fall creators update has finished installing! Now I'm wondering what caused it to hang for so long in the first place.
