BIOS - Incremental updates to latest vrsn or direct update to latest?

Question: BIOS - Incremental updates to latest vrsn or direct update to latest?

Greetings!

I have Acer Aspire 5750G. My current BIOS version is 1.07. The latest version is 1.12.

There are a few versions in between. Should I do incremental updates and reach 1.12 or should I just go direct to 1.12?

Many Thanks!

Preferred Solution: BIOS - Incremental updates to latest vrsn or direct update to latest?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: BIOS - Incremental updates to latest vrsn or direct update to latest?

Bios updates are cumulative, so you only need the latest.

You also don't need to update the bios unless there is a fix in it/them that fixes an issue you may be having. For the most part updating the bios is as easy as updating a driver, only if a bios update goes wrong you can't roll back to the old and you basically end up with a nice paperweight.

I am trying to get this Yoga 14 up to date.  First, I was surprised that runs Windows 10 home vs. pro but that is what it is. However here is my question. The bios on the unit as shipped is 1.2 and is from the JFET43WW family. The latest bios listed is 1.3 from the R05ETxxW family (per the readme) and the filename is r05uj03ww.  Perhaps this is Lenovo's way, but all the prior bios history for that family is under JFETxxWW. Is this the right bios? The latest NIVIDA/Intel driver listed states that " *This driver can be only used on ThinkPad S3 Yoga 14 Broadwell(BIOS ID:JFETxxWW)". So.....can the latest video driver be used with the latest bios which per the readme (and filename) is NOT from the JFETxxWW family? Hopefully I am posting in the right place.  I have been underwhelmed with phone support where "hardware" support will only answer hardware questions and "software support" is "premium" and they want you to pay when this system is only a week old.  Not sure where else to go for answers.  Also have issues with expresscache as....well..they shipped it with windows 10 and with an SSD and no expresscache.  But that is another post.... Thanks, BJB  

Answer:Yoga 14 latest NVIDIA driver not compatible with latest 1.3 bios?

Exactly which ThinkPad Yoga 14 do you own please; 20DM, 20DN or 20FY? There are some different BIOS versions depending on which model you have and this may also have a bearing on other components.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-S-Series-ThinkPad-Yoga/Can-t-Update-BIOS-to-Version-1-3-Lenovo...

Hi folks,
When windows 10 was first released I downloaded it and burned to DVD using the media creation tool from Microsoft.
As windows 10 has now had a major update, and I want to create a DVD with that update on it, without having to reinstall it later, as I have other partitions on my computer to update to 10 as well.
So my query is, does anyone know if I was to download windows 10 32 bit from Microsoft again (using the media creation tool from Microsoft) will it include the latest major update to 10?
Thanks for any help

Answer:Is windows 10 latest big update included in latest media creation tool

Microsoft has made available a download able iso for win 10 1511. If you don't see download link on win pc then try on some other device.. like an android phone or tablet. That's how I got it downloaded and had clean installed. Hope this helps.

Hi all..I'm building a new pc. I have the motherboard and just checked to see if there were any updates for drivers or bios. Since the inital release BIOS there have been 4 more new bios's that are available to download.Shall i just install the latest one or would i have to install them all one by starting with the earliest one?I've tried the company website but the tech-help feature isn't working. I've tried turning off pop-up blockers but it doesn't make a difference.Can anyone help?

Answer:BIOS updates, 1 by 1 or just latest?

I have a Gigabyte mobo and, when building my system, just installed the latest BIOS upgrade. The gigabyte website confirmed that all previos updates were incorporated in the latest one.I would presume that it would be the same for all mobos.

I've had no issues with my X220 for the past few years, been running great to the point that I completely stopped updating the drivers or the bios...
 
About a month ago I decided to do an upgrade in the System Update software, just get everything up to date. That included the latest bios, and all the other drivers...
 
Now since I've had an annoying issue with the WiFi (Intel 6205), where after coming out of sleep, it will disconnect from the WiFi after 15-30 minutes randomly. It ALWAYS happens, and it doesnt matter if it's idle, or downloading or streaming anything. It doesnt reconnect on its own, i have to cycle the wifi switch and it will reconnect, and stay connected for the remainder of time until i put it to sleep again.
 
There was another WiFi update since, and I installed it, and it didn't help... It's not an access point issue, as I've tried this on several WiFi routers and it does it every time...
 
Anyone have any idea what it could be? I dont feel like reinstalling, as everything other than this works perfectly.

Answer:X220, wifi disconnects after latest bios/driver updates

My bios version is J01 V02.24 When I check on the HP bios downloads I see there is a v02.29 available. But when I try to download and install the install assistant says it may not have installed, try again. When I try again, I dont get a message at all. But if I check system bios is still shows v02.24 I dont understand how to flash the bios and am apprehensive about messing the bios up. Is there a utility that checks and updates or any other way for the novice to upgrade bios without blowing the computer up? Appeciate any help or advice on this. Below is my system bios settings, if that helps any.

My wife's Windows-10 HP Laptop got stuck in a Determining Problem/Restart to Repair/Determining Problem/Restart to Repair loop yesterday for 8 hours.

Finally, I just said "screw it", and used the Media Creation Tool to make a Win10 disk using another computer in the house.

Couldn't do a repair because it said some registry entries were missing, so I just did a clean install, which erased everything that was on her Laptop.

After doing the Clean Install, Windows-10 must have pulled in at least 6 Win-10 updates from the internet over a several hour period. Had to restart the PC after a few of them.

I was under the impression that the LATEST Windows-10 update included all prior Win-10 updates...all rolled into one. I've read it here in the forum, and a couple of other places. But this doesn't seem to be the case. At least not anymore.

Answer:Latest Update Includes All Previous Updates? Nope!

From my understanding,, none of the cumulative updates are included in the ISO that we get from the media creation tool and that's why they are downloaded during the instillation.. as you saw.

Answer:Latest bios update help (dv6700)

Hi: Yes, F.34 is the latest BIOS version and if you have that installed, good. I am going to save you from having to strip your notebook for parts and tossing it in the trash if you try to flash the BIOS after you installed Windows 7. DON'T FLASH THE BIOS IF YOU HAVE INSTALLED WINDOWS 7. There will be a 100% chance of totally bricking your notebook if you do. Below is the link to the support and driver page for your specific notebook model. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3717145&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&os=228&query=KW097EA&sw_lang=&tool= As long as the BIOS in your PC is at F.27 or newer, there is no reason that you can't install 4 GB of memory in your notebook right now. I have a dv6810us with the same hardware as yours and I am running W7 64 bit with 4 GB of memory (2 x 2GB of PC2-6400), and it works just fine. If you ever need to flash the BIOS (which you shouldn't ever need to), you will need to reinstall Vista, flash it, and reinstall W7.

Hello I would like to ask:I updated my BIOS last night to the latest version. I am on Windows 10, HP Envy x360. I updated it sucessfully and I am not facing any issues as of now. I wasn't facing one before I updated. Everything was going smoothly but I saw in the HP Support Assistant that I have numerous things to update so I clicked it all & updated. When the BIOS finished installing the computer restarted and I continued updating the others (which included the BIOS internal) but in the middle of the update, I stopped it. And it said it's not applicable anymore. I clicked to update again & the other 3 (there was 4 of them including the BIOS internal) updated succesfully. I even contacted support at that same night to let them do the manual update to give me a peace of mind. The technician said I updated it correctly. But what I read on everyp site on the internet that not to update the BIOS. So I am worrying & scared right now because my laptop might encounter problems that weren't there before the update. I am regretting my decision, I am not a techy person and I don't understand the computer world very well yet I decided to update without knowing first what it was. I am very scared of what might happen because of my carelessness.My questions are:1.

Right... So here I am trying to perform miracles with a XFX/NVidia board again. I'm running out of hair to pull out, but I can't afford to get another one right now.

I'm sure the whole world knows that XFX and NVidia aren't buddies anymore, and I know that XFX skimped on the processor TDP ratings to 'save money', but I'm not sure if this problem is a faulty BIOS from XFX or if my chip is failing.. Anybody else still running this board? Perhaps someone can give a second opinion here...

Currently I'm running the v1.6 BIOS, the latest is v1.7. My PC doesn't have any problems with 1.6, I was just trying to see if I could get a Phenom II 740 BE to work on this board. The BIOS flashes without any problems, no errors or warnings or suspicious beeps.. But then the two-digit diagnostic LED on the board goes haywire with 1.7, with 1.6 it shows normal alpha-numeric codes, but on 1.7 the lines are completely mixed up and don't make any legible numbers or letters.

I must admit, other than that, I haven't found any problems.. My 740 BE still didn't work, but I'm not sure if that was also because of the BIOS or not. Has anybody else perhaps tried this BIOS yet...? If not, and you're comfortable with it, could you try it and see? I had no issues flashing back to 1.6 after trying 1.7, so you don't have to worry about being stuck on it if you don't like it...

Answer:XFX 750a SLI - Latest BIOS Update

I just flashed my motherboard (xfx 750a sli) to latest version 1.7 and I am having the same problems with the LED. I also think that my SATA devices have been disabled.

Is it recommanded to install updates if everything is working fine on the computer?

If everything works well you don't need new BIOS. Be happy with well running operating system.

However, when I try to run HW Setup from the Toshiba Utilities folder on the Start menu I get "HCI Load Error!!" followed by "SCI Load Error!!" but it then puts up a Setup dialoge box with "General" tab with details of the current Bios version.

Hi, can anybody tell me which is the latest possible BIOS version for Satellite L300 11M? The drivers page only gives me v.1.50 as an option, but I see that other L300 models have ver. 2.20. Can I use 2.20 for L300 11m or download some other version from somewhere?
The reason I ask is that I want to try to update my CPU. Yes, I know it's not recommended, but as long as it is possible, I want to try. However, I've been told that my laptop model BIOS will only recognize CPUs with up to 3MB cache. That's why I need more up to date BIOS.

There has been some suggestion that the problem that I am having might be addressed by a BIOS update.
I currently have BIOS firmware version 1.9 Is there a later update for the A660 PSAW3A-07P00R?

If so, where might I obtain it?

Answer:Re: Need latest BIOS update for my Satellite A660

Latest BIOS updated are always offered on official Toshiba support page so if you cannot find it there probably it doesn?t exist.

As far as I know Toshiba doesn?t offer any kind of Linux support so all offered stuff is for Windows. All offered BIOS updates are WIN versions so it can be started under running Windows OS and I don?t know how you can do it using Linux.

I get my brand new L40-17S (20/05/08) with the BIOS 1.70, the Tempro software from Toshiba give me the warning to update it to 1.80 that works fine, after a few day's a new warning update it to 1.90 and now 2.00 in June! The problem is that I can't update anymore above 1.80, when I click on the winflash.exe only a short screen and then nothing.

Operating system Windows Vista 32 without SP1

I really want to have the latest BIOS before I install SP1.

Answer:It is impossible to update the latest BIOS for Satellite L40-17S

> First of all why are there so many BIOS updates in a short time?
Who knows? seems Toshiba releases the drivers and BIOS like the Microsoft own Windows patches? do you known a ?Microsoft patch day?? ;)
I think it?s something similar?

Another question;
Is there something wrong with your notebook?
If not, so why a BIOS update?

I?ve got a notebook which is about 3 years old and there are newest BIOS updates for my notebook but I have never done a BIOS update.
It?s not necessary because the machine runs troublefree

I have a Dell XPS 9550 laptop, and I've recently made two BIOS updates. The one 1.3.something, and now I have 1.4.0
They both had the same terrible issue.
It seems like the processor cooling policy is completely broken.
My laptop's fans never go to silent mode now. They always run, with pretty high speed and noise. Even when CPU is totally idle, or loaded on about 1-5%
Before these updates my Dell never ever turned on the fans with this kind of CPU load, staying completely silent.

If this is BIOS's issue, I'd like to ask Dell engineers to fix it and push new update.
If there is anything I can do myself to fix it, I would highly appreciate any help.
Thank you!

Answer:XPS 15, latest BIOS update ruined the cooling system.

Below are what those two BIOS addressed. I do not see anything specifically dealing with cooling.

XPS_9550_1.3.0.exe8/28/171. Enhance dock's audio performance
You can try to down flash to 1.2.29. But, the system may not let you. It might say you have a newer BIOS and not allow it. Give it a shot.

After successfully updating my BIOS with the latest from HP I completely borked the BIOS by fiddling around with the settings. Push 'power on' 6 long beeps no video. Then a thought came back from the dim recesses of my mind from the dawn of time...that is about 5 years ago. I carefully(!) pulled the side cover of the machine and extra carefully removed the CMOS Battery (CR2032) and let it sit for 5 minutes. Reassemble, power on, successful boot. Remember this trick so you can tell your great-grandchildren...no wait they'll be quantum computing by telepathy...hmm.

This post is primarily focused on Fruitbat because he posted the link which has taken me to this point in my saga but anyone is welcome to join in especially if they have a knowledge of Dos.
Fruitbat,
I followed the instructions in the link you posted and successfully booted from CD and while in Dos told the computer to open the BIOSUPDATE. EXE file. I then got a long list of type which appeared to be lots of instructions for example "update microcode". It finished with a list of four options the last one being: answer YES to any prompt. I presume these instructions were not meant for my immediate use but were part of the update. Then everything stopped. I did not know what to do next. How could I get those instructions up and running? After a while I tried typing 'yes' but it just moved to the next line: nothing happened. So what I need to know is what response do I need to give to make the programme execute all the instructions it listed?
When copying the files onto the boot disc I only copied BIOSUPDATE.EXE. I noticed there was an Autoexec batch file which I ignored. Should I have copied it to the boot disc as well. I just feel I am close to resolving the issue, it is just that I lack the final expertese.
Can you help, Fruitbat?

Hi everyone,I have a severe problem (I guess) after the latest BIOS Update. Windows 7 freezes during startup.I own a 64-bit Lenovo FLex 2 15D with AMD A6-6310 and R4, 4GB RAM and a SSHD (8GBSSH). I purchased it without OS and installed Windows 7 - which worked fine so far.I yesterday updated the BIOS with version 9FCN23WW (for Win7 and Win8), the latest BIOS update. A mistake, it seems.After Reboot, I first had to disable Secure Boot in the BIOS, because it would not let me boot at all. I figured out how to get into the BIOS-Setup to disable this (press Enter 2x, press Tab when in the Boot Menu to access the "Apps Menu", then "SETUP" - just in case this helps someone).Now Win7 begins to start up, but freezes during the startup process (the splash screen with the win flag freezes and looks a bit strange. I used the "protected mode" Windows Startup and saw that the process always hangs when loading "amdkmpfd.sys".That is basically it.I guess I have to find a way to re-install the previous version of the BIOS, but I have no idea how!Any idea?!.......Now about what I did to fix this (poor, but I tried):If I try to start from a Win7 installation CD-ROM (actually it is one for Dell PCs, but I guess that is not the problem) and press a key to boot from CD, Windows loads files, shows "Starting Windows"  and at a certain point again just freezes.

Answer:Boot Fail after latest BIOS Update on Flex 2-15D

I found our the solution to my problem with the help of SebastianLenovo ... In the BIOS / Boot Mode, I switched back from "UEFI" to "Legacy". That's it. That simple. The BIOS Upgrade routine just did not transfer that setting from the old BIOS to the new. Given the fact that 1. I did not change that setting, so it is default and 2. it would have been easy to avoid, if the BIOS update routine would be well programmed to transfer the current BIOS settings to the new, upgraded BIOS ... Anyway a strange situation that a 64-bit system has a 32-bit BIOS. Actually no Linux distribution (except FatDog and rescue systems) are able to deal with it - Linux only running as a Virtual Machine under Windows. I think this is inappropriate and really taking away a part of the fun if you can not run this laptop as a dual boot system. Thanks to Sebastian and I hope this solution helps someone in the future... Regards, Tristam.

The ?bios agent plus program? is an 3rd part software and not Toshiba certified application.

Furthermore the all latest BIOS updates for Toshiba EU notebook models can be downloaded from the Toshiba EU driver page.

I checked this page and the BIOS 2.30 is the latest BIOS released for this model and this means that your BIOS is already up to date.

Lat but not least Toshiba provide own sofware called Toshiba Service Station and this tool notifies you about the real latest updates

Few months back I got a Lenovo ThinkPad P40, it has been working just fine untill the latest BIOS update from Lenovo Companion (R05ET72W 1.50).  Since I use it for work, it is connected to power all the time. I have disabled Sleep & hibernation when plugged-in. When I leave the workstation, I usually just lock the machine (Win + L), so that I can access the laptop from home.  After the latest BIOS update, when I get back to work in the morning, ThinkPad does not wake up no mater what button I press. Opening the lid, shows a black screen, does not respond to anything. The red light on the "ThinkPad" logo is lit.  All I can do is hold the power button for 5 sec and re-power. This is horrible, as it will sonner or later corrupt my Windows installation.  I've had to do this now 3 days in a row, after the BIOS update.  I've updated all drivers and ran Windows 10 update.

Since that update, my LAN (wireless) and bluetooth have been behaving abnormally, including:
Connecting to various wireless networks, but not being able to access the internet. In order to do so, I have to do a wireless troubleshoot in windows, which resets the wifi adapter, then it works againIf I switch between networks (say a wireless, to a hotspot wireless on my phone) it does the same thing. Will connect to the network, but not access the internet, necessitating the same resetBluetooth has started to work abnormally at the same time, including saying my bluetooth keyboard is paired, but it won't recognise any input from my keyboard.

I've since downloaded and reinstalled both the LAN and Bluetooth drivers from the Toshiba website. This has NOT fixed the problem.

If toshiba is not aware or not going to do anything about this, can someone please post a link to the previous BIOS version (which isn't available when I search on the EU support site) so I can at least verify if it was the BIOS update causing the problem

Download the CD rom image BIOs update from the Lenovo webstie, burn it to a disk and reflash your system. It will ask you if you want to update the machine type and serial number, answer yes and enter the information as it appears on the case of the A70.

The bottom side of the laptop, the one below the keyboard, felt hotter than usual. Same for the part right above the fan, one where the power button is. Never had an issue before the update as it never used to get hot enough for me to feel it unless I was playing a heavy game.

Answer:Movie Maker can't start, graphics card has latest drivers and Direct X10

Hi,
If you have an Intel processor running Windows 7, then you most likely have the Intel graphics wrapper, regardless of your graphics/video card.. If you see 'Intel graphics..' under the 'Display adapter' section in your COntrol panel, then this  Data_DumitruHirt's

I bought a Dell XPS 8900 about a year ago and have had 0 issues with the setup. Tonight, the SupportAssist Dell App popped up saying my system needed critical system updates. Listed was a BIOS update (don't recall the version number). I let it install and update the BIOS but now my computer goes from the black and white DELL logo screen to a support assist white screen that appears because I have removed a fan in order to install a Radeon Fury X. I usually have to hit escape from that screen to load windows but instead the boot process starts all over again and I go back to the black and white DELL logo screen and the process stays in this endless loop. I have loaded the BIOS options and it says 2.1.10 as the BIOS version. I have tried to both use BIOS restore and Downgrade BIOS but nothing works and my system refuses to boot Windows. Is there an older BIOS version I can manually flash to correct this issue? I have had no issues with anything prior to updating the BIOS so can only assume that is the culprit. Perhaps an incorrect or corrupt BIOS upgrade? I let the computer do its thing and had no power outage, <profanity> thing just refuses to boot Windows. I cannot even get safe mode to come up (if I am using the proper keyboard command that is).

The latest bios update of X1 Tablet (Model:20GG) breaks the sleep (or hibernation) function. I found the tablet sometimes cannot be waken up by pressing the power button after entering connected standby. The version of the flawed BIOS is1.68-1.21 (N1LUJ30W) After rolling the embedded controller version back to 1.20 (N1LUJ29W), the problem no longer exists.

The reason I ask is last night I recieved a large update, which took around 20-30 minutes with several updates to complete. Suprise, suprise my last remaining problem has now been resolved. This being drivers for my card reader. Not sure if this download was due to my being on the 'Fast Ring' as an 'Insider'or was a general release, as can find no mention on the web apart from "Cumulative update for 64 bit systems CKB3081436.
I guess I should have paid more attention, but was busy getting tea ready

Answer:when was the latest updates for W10

I'm not an "insider" and also got updates last night that solved my keyboard hot keys problem.

Anyone know if the updates released on Tuesday require SP1 to be installed beforehand as a prerequisite? Similarly, if these latest updates are installed now (without SP1) will it cause problems if SP1 is installed later?

I have all the updates prior to SP1, so I don't feel like SP1 will really give me much, and I've seen enough posts of people with problems after installing SP1 I'm in no hurry to download/install it. But I still want to apply critical updates as they come out.

Answer:Latest updates (4/12) and SP1

My windows has just installed a bunch of updates without having SP1 installed, and there are no problems so far.

Hey guys,
My windows rt is plagued with slow wifi (it looks for updates for hours and then it tells me the wifi is too slow...it's a 10mb connection and I've never had any issues with windows or android devices) which won't let me do most of the OS updates or install apps from the Windows Stores (I'm able to from time to time). So far it's been a horrible experience and I curse the day I've bought this piece of garbage.
My questions is, is there an ISO image with the OS containing the LATEST updates so I won't have to do any other updates? I've already refreshed the device and I've already done a factory reset, so I think installing a fresh image with the latest updates is my only hope.

Answer:Iso with all the latest updates?

But is support for the RT still available?

Anyone had fun today with 10 updates?

They went into my pc this morning and since then its taken me an hour and a half to get to the point where I can type this.

The pc booted up, no image. Had to reset to default Samsung flat screen to get it to come 'alive'. Then the error bleeps began in earnest and no stopping. tried and retired cables, no difference, unplugging port box, and re plugging in, no change. Mouse not working.

I changed keyboard from logitech to MS 1.0a MM board, still bleeping. Removed usb connect for logitech. Turned off and restarted, bleeping for about 5 mins - then suddenly it stopped.

Hi all, wondering if anyone has experienced this issue.  Lately my thinkpad T400s has been extremely laggy.  About every 5 to 10 seconds or so my mouse will lock up for about a second.  I was running Windows XP SP3 32-bit.  I tried running msconfig and disabled all non-essential services and all startup items.  The last thing I remember doing was running the Lenovo software update to update my BIOS and drivers to the latest (as of 2010-05-18). Since then I reinstalled my entire OS from scratch with Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.  It seemed that the problem went away.. until I installed and ran the Lenovo System Update 4.0 utility.  I installed all of the important items, did not install the optional ones.  Now the problem seems to be back. Anyone else having this issue?

Well, here we go ... again.  I had 2 "Important Security" updates today:
 
1) "Compatibility update for upgrading Windows 7 - This update helps Microsoft make improvements to the current operating system in order to ease the upgrade experience to the latest version of Windows."
 
2) "Update installs Get Windows 10 app in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 SP1 - This update installs the Get Windows 10 app, which helps users understand their Windows 10 upgrade options and device readiness. For more information about Windows 10, see Windows 10."
    "This update applies to Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Internet Explorer 11 (IE11). Before you install this update, check out the Prerequisites section."
 
Other than deceiving us with the overall description "Important Security" updates, it's obvious that these are really Win 10 'preppers' .  I also still have the last week's "optional" updates that were discussed at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/587305/new-optional-updates-on-82115/ regarding Telephony Tracking (I voted no).  They remain uninstalled.
 
Back to today's deception :  It is apparent that MS will go to 'no ends' to force Win 10 down our throats.  IMO we should be offered an 'update' that will opt-out of the nonsense.  Something that tells them to BACK OFF!

Update: Restored an Acronis Image back to a week ago and it still is messed up, so not windows update problem. I set to turn off display after 1 minute or set the screensaver to 1 minute, they both work fine. It's only after I try to add minutes to either one that neither one will work. This is a real puzzler.

Question: Latest W8 Updates

I have spent hours this morning with the latest set of updates. The installation went to 59% then hung for a long time before going to restarting. Restarting never progressed further. After trying physical restarts a couple of times I finally managed to achieve failure to config updates and reversion to previous set-up.

I have since set updates to manually install and made a recovery disk using Paragon Hard Disk Manager. The question is what do I do now?

As background I had enormous problems in getting W8 installed. I started from XP which failed, after installing Vista two times I finally managed a successful installation. There is one visible trace of all this in that when I start up I am offered 2 choices of OS to boot with. Both are for W8 but only 1 works; the 2nd brings me back to the OS choice screen. Would deletion of 2nd boot option help and if so how do I delete it?

Answer:Latest W8 Updates

The one thing I've notice with the MS updates in windows 8 is that it does seem to take longer vs MS updates in windows 7. One should never do anything until the updates are completed, if not you take the risk of causing some seriou system damage.

How did you install windows 8, upgrade or clean install?

Hi There! I just got the latest Cumulative W10 updates. I occasionally restart my PC; which is a good idea if you seldom shut down, which is the way I run my PC. This morning I was greeted with update and restart;so that's what I chose. Here's what you can expect if you use your PC like I do. You get the blue screen with those 6 spinning dots and the message to not turn off your computer. It will set there for a good while and finally start showing %. Have patience and after awhile your PC will get to 30%. It will then restart a couple of times and finally finish the updates. Why it takes so dang long, I don't know. It make take 20 or 30 minutes. I suppose it depends on your computer. When windows finally loads, you should have the latest Cumulative updates and build # 14393.479. Don't know if this is Patch Tuesday or just a update, but sense I have a new build #, I'm guessing it's Patch Tuesday early. Hope yours goes as smoothly as mine did. I'll be hanging around here all day, trying to stay out of trouble and maybe answer a few threads with problems! Here's some screen shots of the update!
PS if this needs to be moved, please do so!

So I successfully installed a total of 20 Windows updates for my Windows 7 x64 installation on Tuesday 11, 2014. I think 18 of them were "important" and 2 were "recommended" for x64 systems.

Now I have received four additional update notifications through Windows Update, one at a time. I installed the first without giving it much thought, after which I was asked to reboot. Everything seemed fine after reboot until I tried my Firefox browser, it looked all wrong and I could no longer read any of the menu headings. It was essentially non-functional. Then I tried Internet Explorer 11. It simply failed with an error window indicating that it could not start and it was checking for a solution to the problem.

So then I tried to uninstall the update, and I receive a message that an error occurred and the un-installation was unsuccessful. So then I restored Windows from an image file I had just made, and all was well again of course.

When this update came back through Windows Update, I researched it a bit and was surprised to find that it was from 2012. Now it is possible that I missed an important or recommended update, but I know I've checked Windows Update numerous times between 2012 and now, and this never showed up before. I also doubt that I missed an important or recommended update since they are selected by default, and I don't deviate from that. But I didn't verify since I couldn't find an easy way to search the 100+ updates installed on my m... Read more

I installed IE8 a while ago and it has been o.k.Having read good things about Firefox I have also been giving that a try.I am bound to say that it may well be better than IE8,however after installing the latest MS updates it will not work correctly. I have no history and no bookmarks. If I enter an address manually it will open it. No doubt a reinstall will put things right but I was wondering if others have had the same problem.IE8 does work correctly.
