Hi, I began downloading Windows 8 for my parent's computer about 6 hours ago and the installer is just now at "preparing files".
Everything seemed fine until it hit the "Checking the Download" part which literally took the past 5 hours doing. The computer is a little older has vista now but something like this seems ridiculous. I don't want to restart the process either because I fear it might take the same amount of time.
I'd just restart it. I think the same thing happened to me and I reset and it fixed it. I mean the alternative is leaving it on overnight but it seems like if it hasn't done it in 6 it's not going to do it in I'm running an older PC and Windows 8 hung for a long time on setup.
So I just restarted my PC and it did a recovery thing and finished up shortly after. Install on a HDD took 45 minutes from disc in to desktop. This was on a 5 year old mid-range computer. Unless your computer is powered by snails it should not take that long.
