The Upgrading will start. wait for 10-20 mins and if lucky you will be done on the first go. But Sometimes though every thing correct, the communication with the phone can not be established. In such a case plug out the usb cable then plug in again, select pc suit on phone, wait few seconds till PC recognises drivers. Repeat the procedure few times.
Even then If its not working then plug out usb cable, install the usb and flash driver again, switch off phone and connect it to pc as performed earlier. switch on the phone and repeat as earlier.(see from “Step 2” above)
I had to redo it not less than 10 times before success. Hope it helps!
