Setup stuck at "note down your secret words"

I have the Umbrel-recommended hardware. The setup process proceeds until the “note down your secret words” screen, at which time the wheels spins endlessly but the secret words never appear.

Hi Kiarga, sorry for your problem - there is a bug that a handful of users with the newest 4.10 release have experienced. Our recommendation which has worked so far is to start back over with the 4.9 release AND to reformat your hard drive (the bug involved a issue that is stored on your hard drive, not just the SD card).

4.9 can be found on the release page here:

Great, that solution worked. Thanks Jonsyu.
