After fresh W8 install, cumulative/rollup updates enough?

Recommended Posts

After a fresh install from the latest Windows 8.1 ISO (11/2014's "with Update"), are the cumulative rollup updates supposed to be the only thing needed?

There are various older updates that Update Catalog doesn't report as superseded (like KB3110329, a security update from 2016), but Update Catalog isn't always accurate.

If some older updates are needed, does installation order matter?

I'd actually like to know that too.  I'm starting a fresh Windows 8 installation tomorrow afternoon.  :)

before doing anything else, the very first update is to install the latest available Servicing Stack update (SSU)

for Win8.1 manually download & install KB3173424 servicing stack update; also install KB3184143 update and run GWXControlPanel or Never10 to prevent any unwanted upgrades to Win10

for Win8 (or Win8.0) manually download & install KB3173426 servicing stack update and reboot; from past experiences with Win8, I had to restart the computer after installing the KB3173426 update

edit: btw, the KB3110329 update does need to get installed, regardless of order (and whether the latest cumulative rollup is installed or not) as it is offered thru WU (windows update) on Win8/8.1 OSes

Just what are the consequences of not installing the SSU?

Checked this.  I disable secure boot, so this won't affect me.  :)
