I'm trying to do a factory restore of a Gateway ZX4250.

It runs to 100% of the "Restoring System" and then to 99% of the "Updating System". It then hangs there for hours.

I've done this twice after first waiting 18 hours and now into the 2nd run waiting 4 hours.

How long should I wait or is this normal?

You might have to wait longer! What Operating system is it? I had a PC loading updates for 2 days straight. I have seen some processes run for four days!
It's running Win7.

I've also had uodates take a long time to complete.
It's just odd that all the uodates are being done in the last 1%.

I'll just let it go and see what happens in the next day or so.

Thanks for the reply.

If you have another PC to boot that drive behind, you can run a chkdsk /r just to be certain it isnt the HDD.
It's still running the last 1% in the Update System section. Been running now for about 15 hours.
Still working on that last 1% after 36hrs....!
