    Windows 8 Consumer Preview installation getting stuck on Checking apps

    I am installing Windows 8 on my laptop but it’s not really getting installed. The problem being that it’s getting stuck on Checking apps and devices part. It’s been almost half an hour and I don’t know if I should wait or discontinue. Does it always take this long?

    I guess I can help you fix this issue. I was suffering from the same a couple of weeks back. Firstly, try doing this, try opening ‘devices and printers’ from Win7 start menu. If it doesn’t load fully, be sure that the problem is because your installer is not able to scan your device.

    For me, it was my Bluetooth adapter and the solution for which was:

    Click on the Start Button, type services into the Search Programs box. Select Services. You’ll see a list of local services on your system. Find ‘Bluetooth services ‘ and make sure it has started and make it set to automatic.
