I now have window 8 installed with all its updates, the next step, Win 8.1 can be a long drawn out process installing the updates, is it feasible to jump right to Win. 10 without installing 8.1, will Win 10 be as effective without all the Win 8.1 updates not installed? T.I.A.
Try to install 10 using their dedicated media creation tool (you don’t have to create a DVD or copy the image to a flash drive if you don’t want to!): http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO
more information on how to use the tool: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/media-creation-tool-install
If the tool lets you skip past the need to install 8.1 & its updates, you’re good! If notâ€¦well, it will tell you.
Thanks Albert, worked great!
