I had to format my disk recently, and it took several hours to download and install all the updates. I wasn't able to find a single file that collects all Windows 10 updates.
I found on several places on Internet that Microsoft has announced that no service packs will be available.
We have posted about it at following link: I have received a few mails mentioning a strange problem which occurs while installing SP3 in Windows XP.
A few people told me that whenever they try to install SP3 in Windows XP, Windows shows following error message: The reason behind this problem is that the update package installs retail bits on retail builds and checked bits on checked builds. In right-side pane look for a String "Current Type".
This hotfix needs to be applied before SP3, otherwise your system may get stuck in a loop and never start. The file will download directly from Microsoft's servers - you may want to shorten the file name.
However, you must have installed either Windows SP1 or SP2 before SP3.* Keep in mind that new patches made available after Service Pack 3 was released (mid April 2008) will still need to be applied.
Important notes: Microsoft advise uninstalling any beta or Release Candidate versions before installing this final release.
It is really annoying having to download over 1 GB of updates every time I install Windows 10 on a machine.
Hm I would say that they're aware that every other Windows is a failure (2000, Vista, 8 vs.
Windows 10 has moved away from a "Service Pack" model to a "yearly major feature update" model. You'll be pleased to know that Microsoft makes ISO files available for download for the Windows 10 Anniversary Edition Update, which (its actual functionality is effectively identical to what they used to call a "Service Pack").
