First, let it run. I have seen 6 hours.

Then, if no. Cancel it and start again. Use the Media Creation Link if you must do this.

I agree with John about downloading the ISO with the Media Creation Tool.  I've had better luck with that process.

I've also had some systems that wouldn't upgrade unless I allowed the installer to check for updates.  That my standard method now.

You should install clean. You may use your win7 key.

I suggested earlier using the Media Creation Link. Why only one answer selected?

Was it the Media Creation tool that did the trick?  If so, John should get the points instead.  If it was that and having it download updates, then consider splitting them.
