How to update Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10 using Windows Update

The only options you had previously to upgrade from an older copy of Windows to a new one was to run the installer either while the installed operating system was running or by booting from an installation disc or Flash drive to initiate it.

Microsoft wants to make things more comfortable and has added an option to upgrade to Windows 10 using Windows Update.

Windows Update is the operating system's updating service which is best known for delivering security patches once a month to supported Windows devices.

The core benefit of upgrading via Windows Update is convenience. You don't need to download the ISO image of Windows 10, don't need to burn it to DVD or copy it to a USB Flash Drive, and don't need to run it afterwards on your system.

Note: Windows 10 is not ready for prime time yet and it is not suggested to upgrade your work system to it. It is ideal if you have a spare system and want to try it out or a full backup that you can restore.

The upgrade process

The first thing you need to do is downloaded a small program from Microsoft which prepares your Windows 7 or Windows 8 operating system for the upgrade.

It is a 10 Megabyte file that runs automatically on your computer after you execute it. It requires a restart of the PC so that the changes it made take effect.

The device will boot into the current operating system after restart.

  1. Open Windows Update on the PC now. You can tap on the Windows-key, type Windows Update and hit enter to do so.
  2. There you need to click on the check for updates button. It may take a while for the check to complete.
  3. In the end, the update to Windows 10 should be displayed which you can run with a click on the install button.
  4. As you can see on the screenshot above, the update has a size of 2.8 Gigabyte. The download may take a while depending on your Internet connection speed.
  5. The update installer runs the same upgrade process as the ISO installer.

Important remarks

It seems possible to go back to the old operating system after the update. While that is the case, it is highly suggested that you create a backup of your important files and data before you proceed with the update.

Update: Some users have reported that they had no option to go back to the old operating system after upgrading to Windows 10. As I said earlier, if there is any chance that you may want to go back to the old system, do a full backup so that you can restore it.

If you are running a 32-bit version of Windows, you cannot upgrade to 64-bit versions of Windows 10.

There is also no option to change the interface language during the upgrade process.

You can remove the "update to Windows 10 preparation update" again from Windows. You find it in the installed updates list as "Update for Microsoft Windows (KB2990214)".

Closing Words

Windows 10 will be a free upgrade in the first year to all (home) customers who run Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 devices and it is likely that Microsoft will make Windows Update one of the delivery options for the update.

Now You: What's your Windows 10 upgrade experience?

Due to naming changes, older terms like CB,CBB and LTSB may still be displayed in some of our products.

In the following settings CB refers to Semi-Annual Channel (Targeted), while CBB refers to Semi-Annual Channel.

Windows Update for Business enables information technology administrators to keep the Windows 10 devices in their organization always up to date with the latest security defenses and Windows features by directly connecting these systems to Windows Update service. You can use Group Policy or MDM solutions such as Intune to configure the Windows Update for Business settings that control how and when Windows 10 devices are updated. In addition, by using Intune, organizations can manage devices that are not joined to a domain at all or are joined to Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) alongside your on-premises domain-joined machines.

Specifically, Windows Update for Business allows for:

  • The creation of deployment rings, where administrators can specify which devices go first in an update wave, and which ones will come later (to ensure any quality bars are met).
  • Selectively including or excluding drivers as part of Microsoft-provided updates
  • Integration with existing management tools such as Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), System Center Configuration Manager, and Microsoft Intune.
  • Peer-to-peer delivery for Microsoft updates, which optimizes bandwidth efficiency and reduces the need for an on-site server caching solution.

Windows Update for Business is a free service that is available for Windows Pro, Enterprise, Pro Education, and Education.

Update types

Windows Update for Business provides three types of updates to Windows 10 devices:

  • Feature Updates: previously referred to as upgrades, Feature Updates contain not only security and quality revisions, but also significant feature additions and changes; they are released semi-annually.
  • Quality Updates: these are traditional operating system updates, typically released the second Tuesday of each month (though they can be released at any time). These include security, critical, and driver updates. Windows Update for Business also treats non-Windows updates (such as those for Microsoft Office or Visual Studio) as Quality Updates. These non-Windows Updates are known as Microsoft Updates and devices can be optionally configured to receive such updates along with their Windows Updates.
  • Non-deferrable updates: Currently, antimalware and antispyware Definition Updates from Windows Update cannot be deferred.

Both Feature and Quality Updates can be deferred from deploying to client devices by a Windows Update for Business administrator within a bounded range of time from when those updates are first made available on the Windows Update Service. This deferral capability allows administrators to validate deployments as they are pushed to all client devices configured for Windows Update for Business.

Changes to Windows Update for Business in Windows 10, version 1709

The group policy path for Windows Update for Business was changed to correctly reflect its association to Windows Update for Business.

Prior to Windows 10, version 1709 Windows 10, version 1709
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update > Defer Windows Update Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update > Windows Update for Business

We have added the ability to manage Windows Insider preview builds and their delivery:

The Manage preview builds setting gives administrators control over enabling or disabling preview build installation on a device. You can also decide to stop preview builds once the release is public.

  • Group Policy: Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Windows Update/Windows Update for Business - Manage preview builds
  • MDM: Update/ManagePreviewBuilds

Important

This policy replaces the "Toggle user control over Insider builds" policy under that is only supported up to Windows 10, version 1703. You can find the older policy here:

  • Group Policy: Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Data Collection and Preview Builds/Toggle user control over Insider builds
  • MDM: System/AllowBuildPreview

The policy settings to Select when Feature Updates are received is now called Select when Preview Builds and Feature Updates are received. In addition to previous functionality, it now allows you to choose between preview flight rings, and allows you to defer or pause their delivery.

  • Group Policy: Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Windows Update/ Windows Update for Business - Select when Preview Builds and Feature Updates are received
  • MDM: Update/BranchReadinessLevel

How to manually download and install Windows 10 cumulative updates

Microsoft makes available updates for Windows 10 in the regular basis to patch any security hole and to improve the functionality of the operating system. However, even now that updates are mandatory to keep devices always up to date, sometimes updates may not appear for download on your computer for a long time.

Although Windows Update is the preferred method to get updates, Microsoft also allows users to manually download new patches as they become available through the "Microsoft Update Catalog" website. While mainly a resource for IT administrators who need to test updates before pushing them to devices in their network, you can use the Update Catalog to quickly download a new update if it's not showing for you in Windows Update as an alternative option.

In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the steps to find, download, and install updates manually on your device.

How to download cumulative updates

It's important to note that the Microsoft Update Catalog doesn't list anything, instead it's a search page, where you must know exactly the update you want to download.

The easiest way to find an update is knowing its Knowledge Base reference number. For example, on October 11th, Microsoft released Windows 10 build 14393.321, which Knowledge Base reference was KB3194798. You can find the references when we publish a new article about a new update, or when you visit the Windows 10 Update History website. Then do the following:

  1. Visit the Microsoft Update Catalog website.

    Quick Tip: If you can't access the site using Microsoft Edge, you can also try opening a new InPrivate window, which should let you get through.

  2. Do a search for the update using the KB number for the update you want. For example, KB3194798.

  3. Click the Download button for the 64-bit or 32-bit version of the update. If you don't know your system type, do the following:

    1. Open Settings.
    2. Click on System.
    3. Click on About.
    4. See System type.

  4. A pop-up window will appear with a direct download link, click it to download the .msu file.

How to install cumulative updates

While you can simply double-click the .msu file to install a new update for Windows 10, you may prefer to include options, such as to prevent the operating system from restarting to finish applying the update, which is something you can do using Command Prompt.

  1. Use the Windows key + I keyboard shortcut to open the Power User menu and select Command Prompt (admin).
  2. Type the following command and press Enter:

    wusa C:\PATH-TO-UPDATE\NAME-OF-UPDATE.msu /quiet /norestart

    Note: We're adding the /quiet /norestart switches to prevent the operating system from restarting your computer after installing the update, but later on, you must manually reboot your device to finish applying the update.

    Quick Tip: If the name of the update turns to be very long, simply begin typing "Windows10.0-kb" and the hit the Tab key to autocomplete the name.

Wrapping things up

The Microsoft Update Catalog website works best using Internet Explorer, but recent changes that removes ActiveX requirement now allows users to access the site using Chrome and Microsoft Edge. Additionally, alongside cumulative updates, you can also download the latest updates for certain device drivers, and Surface updates.

It's worth pointing out that even though sometimes updates won't get through because of a problem on your computer, there will be other times when an update won't show up because it's not compatible with your system. If you install a patch that is not working correctly, you can always use our guide to uninstall a problematic update.

While we're focusing this guide on Windows 10, the same concept shown here works to download and install updates on previous versions of the operating system, including Windows 8.1 and Windows 7.

Windows Update Delivery Optimization: FAQ

Windows Update Delivery Optimization helps you get Windows updates and Microsoft Store apps more quickly and reliably.

You’re in control over whether you use Delivery Optimization with the settings described in this article.

How Delivery Optimization works

Windows Update Delivery Optimization works by letting you get Windows updates and Microsoft Store apps from sources in addition to Microsoft, like other PCs on your local network, or PCs on the Internet that are downloading the same files. Delivery Optimization also sends updates and apps from your PC to other PCs on your local network or PCs on the Internet, based on your settings. Sharing this data between PCs helps reduce the Internet bandwidth that’s needed to keep more than one device up to date or can make downloads more successful if you have a limited or unreliable Internet connection.

When Windows downloads an update or app using Delivery Optimization, it will look for other PCs on your local network (or from the Internet, depending on your settings) that have already downloaded that update or app. Windows doesn’t download the entire file from one place. Instead, the download is broken down into smaller parts. Windows then gets parts of the update or app from the PCs that have it, and parts from Microsoft. Windows uses the fastest, most reliable download source for each part.

Delivery Optimization creates a local cache, and stores files that it has downloaded in that cache for a short period of time.

How we help keep your data safe

Delivery Optimization can’t be used to download or send personal content. Delivery Optimization doesn’t access your personal files or folders, and it doesn’t change any files on your PC.

Delivery Optimization downloads the same updates and apps that you would get through Windows Update and Microsoft Store, using the same security measures. To make sure you’re getting authentic updates, Delivery Optimization gets information securely from Microsoft to check the authenticity of each part of an update or app that it downloads from other PCs. The authenticity of the downloads is checked again before installing it.

How to control Windows Update Delivery Optimization

To stop downloading updates and apps from or sending to other Windows 10 devices on the Internet:

  1. Select the Start button, then select Settings > Update & security > Windows Update > Advanced options.
  2. Select Delivery Optimization (or Choose how updates are delivered in earlier versions of Windows 10).
  3. Select PCs on my local network.

To stop downloading from or uploading to other PCs on the local network:

  1. Select the Start button, then select Settings > Update & security > Windows Update > Advanced options.
  2. Select Delivery Optimization.
  3. Turn off Allow downloads from other PCs. You'll get updates and apps directly from Windows Update and from Microsoft Store with Delivery Optimization, however you won’t download from or upload to other PCs.

If you use a metered or capped Internet connection, Delivery Optimization won’t automatically download or send parts of updates or apps to other PCs on the Internet.

To identify a Wi‑Fi or Ethernet connection as metered or capped:

  1. Select the Start button, then select Settings > Network & Internet > Wi‑Fi > Advanced options.
  2. Select the network you’re using, and then turn on Set as metered connection.

5 ways to disable Windows 10 Automatic updates

This was inevitable even though Microsoft tried as hard as possible to avoid it.

Users are getting sick and tired of the automatic updates and the feeling of helplessness they create to the end user.

Now it actually was well intended by Redmond.

They wanted to set up a logical bug testing rhythm and cadence that started at Microsoft and ended up on the consumer’s desk.

Unfortunately customers who don’t have the flexibility of professional or enterprise update delay options are rebelling.

There have been a few high profile cases of Windows updates that went awry and so some options to disable Windows 10 automatic updates have sprung up.

It is what it is.

Update: Here’s a Video from Lane walking through some of the options to disable updates in Windows 10

Here are 5 ways you can disable Windows 10 Updates

#1 Setting up a metered connection

So this is actually a pretty ingenious way of getting Microsoft to leave your PC alone.

In Windows 10, if you’re on Wi-Fi, Microsoft have this option for you to explicitly specify that you’re on a metered connection.

This is just for wi-fi users who are paying for their data usage and wish to conserve their data plans.

To enable the setting, bring up the Start Menu and perform a search for Change Wi-Fi settings.

Open the resulting option and navigate to Advanced Options.

Locate the Set as metered connection toggle and enable it.

windows 10 metered connection

This tells Windows 10 not to download updates to your system because you are being conservative with data usage.

#2 You can stop the Windows Update Service

To do this, open the Run command and then type “services.msc” and press the “Enter” key. The Services list should appear.

From here, you can find the Windows Update service. Open it.

Under the General tab, change “Startup Type” into “Disabled.” and then restart. The Windows Update Service should be disabled at this point.

Here’s an image of the 3 screens. Click on it for a larger version.

Stop Windows Update

If you want to re-enable it in the future, go through the steps again but this time change “Startup Type” to “Automatic”.

#3 Using the Group Policy Editor

Here are the steps to disable Windows 10 updates via the Group Policy Editor

  • Step 1: Press the Windows key to bring up the Start Menu. Type in Group Policy Editor and open the tool from the results.
  • Step 2: Navigate to Computer Configuration and expand the Administrative Templates folder.
  • Step 3: Within the folder, select All Settings and then locate the Configure Automatic Updates entry in the subsequent screen.
  • Step 4: Double-click the entry and enable it by clicking the Enabled radio button at the top-left.
  • Step 5: Open the combo-box and select the final option: Allow local admin to choose setting.

Click to see a larger image.

Group Policy Editor

Now that you’ve successfully managed to enable the option to allow advanced control over the updates, you need to access it.

  • Open up Control Panel and navigate to the System and Security settings.
  • Open Windows Update and select Change settings. There, you’ll be presented with the option to Check for updates, but let me choose whether to download and install them. Set your system to this setting and save it. Now, your system will regularly check for updates and show you a list of available updates; from there you can choose the ones you want to install at your discretion.

#4 Stop Windows 10 Updates entirely

[su_note note_color=”#ff6671″]This is NOT recommended at all. Do not try this at home!![/su_note]

You can also disabling update checking altogether.

  • Open up Group Policy Editor, using the method detailed above.
  • Navigate to the Configure Automatic Updates setting from the All Settings folder.
  • Set the toggle to Disabled.

Disable Updates Totally

And that’s it.

After this, your computer will no longer even check to see if any updates are available for the system.

Group Policy Editor is only applicable to users on the following SKU’s – Windows 10 Education, Enterprise and Pro.

For users who don’t have group policy access, they can do the following steps.

  • Open the Run command and then type “regedit” before pressing “Enter.”
  • Navigate to:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\AUOptions
  • Create a “32-bit DWORD” value called “AuOptions.” Under “Value Data,” type “2” and then click “OK.”
  • Open the Settings app and navigate to: Update and Security, Windows Updates. Click “Check for updates.”
  • Restart.

#5 Disable Selective Windows 10 Updates

Microsoft has also released a tool that can be used to hide or disable Windows 10 updates selectively.

All you need to do it, download it from Microsoft’s website, and install it on your computer.

Follow the instructions on the website to disable the problematic update you are having trouble with.

There you have it. 5 ways to stop updates.

You’re welcome.  🙂
