    Coming on the record on case that this happens to somebody else. I got the latest anniversary update today. The update got stuck al 25% and after more than 2 hours waiting I decided to do something about it. I removed the microSD card from the bay and to my surprise the update continued and ended without any more issues.

    Thank you so much! This saved me what I'm sure would have been hours of endless binging. Once I popped the microSD card out the update progressed happily along.

    I was sure that posting it in this site was going to help a lot of Surface owners.

    Having the mSD card in the slot seems to be an issue when re-installing Windows from a USB drive too.
