Windows 7: Which updates to install on fresh Win7 to get Win10 Upgrade tool?

Which updates to install on fresh Win7 to get Win10 Upgrade tool?

Hi.
I just did a fresh install of Win7 Ultimate SP1 on my PC, since the previous install was all crooked and had problems with viruses.
Now, I would like to keep Win7 just as a temporary tool, since all I want to get is the Win10 Upgrade tool and get the new release.
Since I don't want to install all 230+ Updates before getting the Upgrader (GWX), I'd like to ask which updates I mandatorily have to install in order to get the Upgrader. Microsoft's page regarding the update (KB3035583) does not tell me that I need some updates beforehand.

Any Ideas?

You still need at least all the Security updates
See this thread for the listing of ones related to the Win 10 upgrade offer

Oh o.O All 130 of them :\ ? Or is it enough if I install the 5 on the link you posted? Because installing all the security updates will first of all slow down my machine ExTrEmElY, and second take a enormous amount of time...

You need all windows updates.

You think that's slow wait until you try to download a nearly 4gb win-10 update

Aw bummer... Well, since that PC is quite old, I was afraid it would slow down the system again.. But I guess it'll get better with Win10...

If it's slow again after loading all win updates you might of got a rootkit
Rethink your security choices which are unknown so far

As far as security 10 isn't any better just newer which primarily uses windows defender no different than using Microsoft security essentials = not the best available just basic security.

Many updates are designed to speed response, not slow it. SO long as you're not short on RAM, then there is almost no downside to installing all updates.

Well, i have the maximum supported by the system, which is 4GB DDR2... (The PC is not so recent). My problem is given by the fact that I have a quite slow internet connection, and that would take hours and hours and hours to download all of them... So that's why I wanted to know the strictly necessary updates to get the win10 upgrader, since I want to run Windows10...

Might as well time downloading all updates,
10 will likely take even longer.
