Windows 10 upgrade

Folks,
I've elected to upgrade my laptop from Win 7 to Win 10. Well, for the past hour all that is happening is this:
Windows 10 upgradeIs it normal for the quick check to run over an hour? I stopped the process earlier this morning and restated my machine, launched the update program only to experience the same problem. Any suggestions

It takes about 3 hours, maybe 4 from beginning to end of the upgrade process.  If you are having issues getting it going, shut down, start up and install from this Microsoft creation link below.

I just upgraded a Windows 7 laptop this way yesterday.

Be sure you first uninstall software that does not work in Windows 10:  Flash, some vendor tools, and so on.
