  • Hi Marverlous,

    There are several things might cause win10 upgrade hangs: Hardware, processor, disk space, hard disk read & write speeds.

    As far as I know, win10 upgrade hang around 96% may due to busy backing up data. So, do you have much data need to be backed up?

    Besides, since you have tried numerous times, do you get any message such as failed to upgrade after waiting for the hang before?

    Also check if clear SoftwareDistribution could help, and check if there are errors in windows update log.

    Best Regards,
