It's possible it's normal, but I'd suspect more that this is a sign of your HDD starting to die.
While installing win7 on my hp pavilion dv7 4010sd, the recovery keeps stopping at random moments: 74% for 20 minutes, 83% for 40, and now on 95% for 70 minutes already, is this normal?
I am using the reset disks i made from the hp recovery diks creator(6 cd's)
There were 3 types of recovery/reset:
Minimized disk image
I chose factory reset, or should i have chosen (or choose) an other one?
P.s. It keeps saying:
'estimated time remaining: 4 minutes' while it was 2 minutes at the start of 95%
