Your Xbox Installation Stopped ? Here's What to do

Many users have complained that their Xbox installation stopped at 99% or near. If the installation process of your Xbox game has stopped at 0% (or near it), it happened because your console started downloading an update during the installation process. In this case, the installation will not continue no matter how long you wait.

This guide will show how to fix the Xbox One "Installation Stopped" error.

How To Fix An Xbox That Won't Download Games

Method 1: Remove local saved games

This option will not delete any game saved on the Xbox Live cloud, it will just clear the data that's saved locally. Here's how to do that:

  • First, eject the disc from the console
  • Scroll left on Xbox Home and open the guide
  • Next, go to Settings >All settings > System> Storage> select Clear local saved games > Yes to confirm.
  • The console will restart. Now try installing the game again.

Method 2: Have the console offline and try installing the game

The second method requires you to take the console offline and cancel the download. Once the game is installed, go back online and download the update.

Step 1: Take your console offline

Do the following:

  • Go to the Home screen and press the “Menu” button on your controller
  • Next, click Settings.
  • Then click Network.
  • Disconnect Wireless or Wired Networks

Step 2: Cancel the update download

The next step is to cancel the download because this is what caused the problem in the first place.

  • Go back to the Home screen and select “My Games and Apps.”
  • Go to the game you are trying to install.
  • Next, press the “Menu” button on the controller
  • And then click “Cancel.”

Step 3: Install the game

With your internet connection still off, follow these steps to install the game again: If you don’t keep the internet connection off at this time, the update process may start again and interrupt your installation process.

Please wait until the game is fully installed before proceeding to the next step.

Step 4: Go online and install the updates

You can now restore your internet connection. With your internet back on, your game updates will now download and install without issues.
