Bios update hangs at 91%, can I restart the computer?

Hi all,

I'm stuck here, I shouldn't have clicked on this "critical" bios update on my Lenovo laptop.
It has frozen at 91% and clicking cancel or trying to close the window won't work.

Do you think that I can safely restart?

Thanks

False alarm sorry. There was an install confirmation popup window that I had to click on behind the regular install window, so I coudn't see it.
Thank you
