Windows 11 Preview Install stuck at 35% - tried both methods (No app closing window)

I've been trying to install Windows 11's insider preview on my system for a good while now, and with both methods (Windows Update, and the Setup found in the update's ISO), it has failed. When I try to use Windows Update, the update stops at 35% installed, with no window or anything. I close the settings window and re open it later, and the update is downloading itself again.

When this happened, I tried to use the Setup method. With this method, however, when I went through everyhing (even telling it not to check for and download updates), it got stuck on "Making sure you're ready to install" for hours on end with no signs of error or continuation.

If anyone could get back to me with any advice, I would appreciate it. Thank you.

On a side note, I have another update trying to install but errors with 0x800706be when it reaches 100%. Update is KB5004034.

Hi @cannon9009 ,

Can you share your hardware configuration here? Alternatively, if you use a Laptop, you can share its model name.

By then, I'll be doing some research for your problem. Stay tuned.

Laptop. Inspirion 15-3567 as it says on Settings > System > About. Name on the actual laptop is just shortened to "Inspirion 15".

As for hardware itself, there is:

  • (Processor) Intel Core i3-7100U (2.40GHz) (Dual-core)
  • 6 GB RAM
  • (Graphics) Intel HD Graphics 620
  • (Sound Codec) Realtek ALC3246
  • 1 TB Hard Drive

If you need any other specifications, feel free to tell me.
