    Depending on the workloads on the server, this may not be too abnormal. Exchange CU/RUs, for example, almost always take that long. Windows is pretty good about timing out failed updates and rolling back, and you definitely don't want to impatiently reboot during a rollback. I'd give it another few hours before I panicked.

    Now i am taking a whole server's backup and re-format the server with fresh OS installation. Really fedup.
