David,

Currently updating the OS via windows update, so will definitely try this afterwards. I tried to boot the one-time boot menu using an Asus laptop (ESC key) and it worked, so I am confident F11 will work thanks to Boozad referencing the relevant manual to my pc. Great work guys.

The windows updates are taking forever. There are 156 updates and the computer has taken around 15 hours so far just to complete 65! Is my computer slow or what?

It is downloading all the language packs. Greg did day to download all important and optional updates though.

No, do not download the language Updates in Ultimate!

Reboot and hide those after Check for Updates, uninstall those already installed in View Installed Windows Updates.

What, just cancel updates or just reboot while they are still downloading? Then do hide as you said etc

Cancel updates, then uninstall any Language packs, check for Updates, Hide Language packs.

Windows Update - Uninstall an Update

Windows Update - Hide or Restore Hidden Updates

Ok, so the screen went blank after cancelling the updates with a white in the top left corner. Closed the screen after pressing some f keys to see if I could get back, but it turned off. Turned it back and now it's resuming windows.
