    Installing Windows 8


    I have an existing system that I have updated with Windows 8.1 with no problem. I also have a system for my daughter that I would like to do the same for, however, the internet connection is EXTREMELY slow. Is there some way I can download and save the update to my existing system and then copy thee update the other system and do an install?
