D3has become the holy grail of interactive data visualization.
I think that the popularity of D3in data science fraternity is not in sync with its true potential.
Very good at resuming broken downloads and it downloads only what is needed for your system therefore a much faster method.
The downside is that the upgrade isn't a smooth process.
Step 2 is just performing the stopping of Windows Update after it's been disabled, better to just follow the command prompt route to disable I had the same problem with my old Lenovo T500 I tried 3 times and it stopped at 99 percent then I checked my system, and I found out in the device manager that not all the drivers been installed properly I went to download all the drivers and tried again then it worked fine..
By 96% it can start taking up to an hour between increments till it gets to 99% (where it freezes). I wouldn't recommend step 2 and 3 unless you want to start back over from 0%.In my case, after each interruption (I had four) it would add 3.02GB to the download - basically start downloading 1 files.With 5 downloads of over 15GB I had to say goodbye to this method as nothing I did could reset the tool to its initial state.I had to make sure all the important windows updates in Win7 have been installed (which took some effort, since some of them been failing and had to solve that).
Then proceeded with disabling automatic updates and the update service and finally succeeded with upgrade. Here is what I've learnt about upgrading to Windows 10, in the past few days.Installed Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) on a fresh PC and after installing service pack 1 started the upgrade to Windows 10.
