I reset an older computer I had by installing Win 8 all went well until I started my update, got the "update failed re configuring updates" I tried msconfig and disabling all the windows products and startups, ran Windows Update troubleshooter. I know I can probably get them to install like doing 10 or 20 at a time. I have a link that still can get me to Win. 10 but if I do upgrade to Win. 10 without doing all the Win. 8 updates will it work as well? T.I.A.

Have done a lot of upgrades since 10 came out and would say that it would always be best to have all updates sorted before hand, but if it upgrades successfully it will find everything it needs on 10 update and run as well as if it was previously fully upgraded.

Thanks. Have heard it doesn't make a difference, I agree with though, just seems to make sense,
