Windows 7: Win 7 Updates Get Started Problem.

Win 7 Updates Get Started Problem.

I wanted to update the Win7 on my Dual boot Win 7 / Win 10 laptop.
Check for updates after a while displayed a Win10 dialog box titled Get Started and had a link to show all the available updates. However I could not find any way to update just the Win 7 system.
I thought that I had heard that if you allow it to download the Win10 files you could reject the upgrade to Win 10 and then be left with the Win 7 updates. I started this and unfortunately ran out of disk space on the Win 7 partition.
This crashed the whole system. I am able to boot the Win10 using the dual boot OS selection but cannot get to the Win 7 partition. I can't even repair the Win 7 as the repair disk is not recognised to restore my image backup.
What is the correct way to deal with this "Get Started" dialog to prevent the download of Win 10.
I am still recovering the machine and may have to go back to first principles and re-install the Win 7 all over again but don't want to get into the same problem.
