What updates have to be installed for Brink's Upgrade to Windows 10 Update - Enable or Disable in Windows 7 or 8.1 tutorial to work?


The Gwx tool should still work regardless of what updates are installed.

The settings mentioned in the tutorials require a version of the Windows Update Client that reads those settings. It has been a while since I looked at the reg changes that the GWX tool makes. You might be right about it always working.

Yep looks like a lost cause to keep https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3102810 out all it does is reinstall :/

Came with this batch I personally didn't manually check for updates either

Thrashzone, Are you saying 3102810 keeps coming back? After, I did a clean install with windows 7 and hide the recommended update including 3102810, it has not comeback yet. I am wondering since this update 971033 won't install without removing another update that blocks the install that maybe preventing 3102810 from being re-offered. I am unable to confirm that. There is an old post of mine, in the VIP section on how I got 971033 to install at one time. I just been so busy with health issues, I haven't got around to doing the fix again. Plus having to reinstall windows 7 again the other day thanks to dell.


Here is how I got KB971033 installed previously. I figured out why it wouldn't install. It was thanks to Noel postings that helped me to figure out the issue. The issue was that KB3004394 was installed. After removing that and rebooting. I restored the KB971033 and it installed. I downloaded the KB3004394 manually and tried to install it, it said not needed for this system or something like that. Now, I will probably do this again but wait tell I am ready to do another backup.

Yep just manually searching for updates it will install without ever being listed,
Uninstall it and this is what I get and manually searching is the only way to get rid of this
Update client is most likely the issue

I guess I completely missed it mostly because kb...2810 was classed as Important

I was looking at my OS partition and I noticed a C:\$Windows.~BT folder that had been created last week.
Inside was a Sources folder.
Luckily it only contained some sort of log file.
Well I just rolled back my system to 21st October's backup due to another issue with Windows Updates.

That means that Nov 2015 updates were downloaded and installed today.

Here's a list of updates. Note: I do not have MS Office installed. I did not get the C:\$Windows.~BT folder created after installing updates.

Here's the optional updates that I did not install. "Give me recommended updates the same way as I receive important updates" - if checked - might result in these being installed. One or more of those looks like the likely culprit.
