    Windows 8.1 update


    Hi
    I have seven Lonovo desktops that I'm administrator for. The all have Windows 8 ome installed. I want to update them to Windows 8.1 however withe the the Windows 8.1 update coming in April I would like to wait until that comes out before doing so. Mostly to save time by not having to do it twice. My question is do both updates have to be done in sequence or can I wait and and do just the April update? Can anyone answer this question?
    Thanks for the help

    Hello Timfitz, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Unfortunately, it appears that you will need to running Windows 8.1 to have the Windows 8.1 Update available in Windows Update when released on April 8th.

    Thank you for the quick response. I was afraid of that. Just trying to take a short cut.

    You're welcome. I don't blame you. Hopefully MS will release a service pack that will have all these updates in one package to update from Windows 8 soon.
