    Hello,

    How long did you leave it this way? Did you leave it for like 5 minutes to see if it will take? Or jsut reset it after a minute or 2?

    Cheers,
    Mak

    Hello,

    Dont get me wrong. On that type of system it should take 15 minutes for the installer to run. But it might take it more than a couple of minutes. Without knowing how long the OP waited we can not answer if there truly is a issue or not.

    Cheers,
