Previously, Madam spoke about the top seven troubleshooting tips to solve the “Getting Windows ready” screen that stopped:
Windows doesn’t give you any indication of how long Windows will take to set up, because it doesn’t know Some updates may take a very long time, and the operating system can’t reliably calculate the end time Even if it’s already taking a while, your best bet is to try to let the update take its course. What is long enough? If the Getting Windows ready screen has been visible for more than three hours, it might be time to go ahead and try something else.
Check your internet connection
Updates are often dependent on an internet connection, and if Wi-Fi is intermittent, this may cause the Getting Windows ready screen to stop Check again your connection; If you’re on Wi-Fi, make sure another device in the same room can connect without a problem If you’re still in doubt, connect your computer directly to the router using an Ethernet cable if possible, or restart your router and internet modem.
Restart your computer and try again
If you have waited several hours and are sure that the update is already stuck, you may want to try restarting your computer and see if it boots up normally afterwards To do this, make sure to perform a hard shutdown: press and hold the power button until Turn off your computer, or if you are using a desktop computer, simply remove the power cord, wait a minute, and then turn your computer back on.
