How long does it take to update the BIOS on a MIni 110?

So far, my computer has been running with the message "please do not power off or unplug your machine. Installing update 1 of 1" for more than 6 hours.  (It's still going!)  I'm currently in Shanghai, so taking the computer into a shop seems unlikely, but I need this machine.  (Fortunately, I can use a university computer for some things but not everything.)

Are you referring to Windows update or BIOS update over here? Usually BIOS update takes 4-5mins and you have to ensure there is no power interruption so that process is completed succesfully.

I am pretty sure it was a BIOS update.  It finally finished the update after almost 20 hours.
