Sometimes, you’ll see that Windows EBS installation wizard appears to hang and some updates’re not showing progress. For e.g., Windows EBS installation wizard’ll show “Installing…” while “Internet Explorer 8 for Windows Server 2008 x64 Edition” update has no progress. A work around: Drag Windows EBS Installation Wizard and move it to the corner of current desktop. The reason for the pause is that the “Internet Explorer 8 for Windows Server 2008 x64 Edition” has displayed a dialog which’s completely hidden by the Windows EBS installation wizard and it’s waiting for user input. The same experience may also happen to “Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2”, as shown in 3rd screenshot. You can use the same workaround above to find and fix the problem so the Windows EBS Installation Wizard can continue the installation.
