    If your laptop is using a freshly installed Win 10, then first things it would do is Activate your Windows, then the 2nd thing it would do is do Windows Update. Windows Updates which could last 30+ mins if your the internet plan bought from your ISP is low grade. All this happens in the background automatically.
