Without more information, it is going to be difficult to diagnose the problem.
  • Is the laptop Windows 11 compatible? You'll need to go to Acer and check your model.
  • Next, I'd make sure you have all the available Windows updates on your laptop.
  • Next, make sure you have a backup of your system in case something goes awry during the upgrade.
I couldn't imagine taking 24 hours for an upgrade.

Welcome to Eleven Forum.

No, neither could I. My System One is a compatible Acer laptop and when it upgraded from W10 to W11 through Windows Update....
....The whole process took over four hours...

Try using the Windows 11 Installation Assistant.
