Windows 10: Skip earlier Updates and go straight to Spring Creators Update? Solved

    Skip earlier Updates and go straight to Spring Creators Update?


    I have multiple Win 10 Pro installs on my main system (I had extra Win 7 licenses from an old job.) and I multiboot using EasyBCD. However, I don't use these other installs very often and I don't think they have been updated even with the original Creators Update.

    For the Spring Creators Update, I plan to use the MS Tool to create an update USB and update each of my main systems off this USB. Can I also update the other Win 10 Pro installs, the ones I don't use often, with this tool? Or do I first need to install all the older updates?

    You should be able to update right to 1803.

    I say this as I used the tool to go from 1607 to 1709. Can't see why it would be different.

    We also recommended the in place repair / upgrade to get members issues fixed.

    Yes, I agree: once an ISO for the 1803 release becomes available, you should be able to use it to jump straight into that release. Besides the MCT, you should also be able to grab it through HeiDoc.net's excellent Windows ISO Downloader. Same goes for the UUP-dump miniserver from Github.

    I would think twice about installing it now though on a main machine as they appear to have blocker bugs preventing its general release. Wait for the general availability of 1803.

    Wait a good 2 to 3 months after it comes out, everyone and their brother will be trying to update, I wait at least 6 months or even a full year. I have Pro so I can do that.

    But if I hear great things, maybe I`ll install it on the Z170 a bit sooner.
