Hi I don't want Windows to update the anniversary edition from windows update because it finds a corrupted Dell update (which dell doesn't care about) and updates it, cannot be rolled back. Anyway, wondering if there is an update file I can download, update it offline, then use the disable update tool after the update to stop it from updating that particular driver. Don't feel like creating an ISO to do this.

 

Alternatively I could trial a driver backup and then restore (but that is not ideal)

That you have to create a USB media tool to update (don't have a USB drive!). But no chance of just clicking on a file like in previous windows service packs of old?

Interesting Dell

 

No USB or DVD  !!!

 

You can mount an iso natively within W10

 

http://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/how-to-natively-mount-and-burn-iso-images-in-windows-10/

 

is as good an explanation as any.

 

But if the Anniversary update requires a restart at any time in the process you of course loose the virtual image.

 

That's why I didn't mention it sooner.

Mount (or open, with say 7-Zip), copy the install file(s) to a temporary folder, then hope the installer isn't expecting to be in a specific folder and can find itself again if needed to during any reboots.

Alternatively I'd see if I could find where win10 caches downloaded updates, hope the files are in the same format, and copy them to there. It's probably protected though and there may be other problems, I'd try the first method first unless you're going to be wanting to do things like this a lot.

Actually, not to hijack your thread, but I was wondering today if it would be possible to share the cache folder with other installs and simlink to their cache folders - then you could force the lead to download updates and have them immediately avalible to the others. I have no idea if even individual parts of that would work, never mind if the whole is a good idea or not.

I just recalled that, that was how I updated from windows 8.1 to windows 10.

 

So did that, mounted the ISO, fired up "setup.exe", option to NOT download updates (ie download updates later), and it worked like magic.

 

However the update broke the driver, but because I had backed it up, pointed device manager to the backup folder and it reinstalled the driver without complaining.

 

Phew.

And immediately re-ran the "hide update" tool and re-hide the driver from future updates.

 

Till next anniversary and I'm bound to forget this again and ask the same question.

Cool  :)

 

Nice to see we found a way to get you updated.

 

As always there's many ways to skin a cat.

 

Yep I also have updates turned of for everything.

 

If it's not broke I'm not going to make it that way.
