Solved Are all Updates needed before upgrading Windows 8 to 8.1?


New Member
Toshiba Satellite C855D. Used Reset to reinstall Windows 8 to factory condition. All seems well. I Would like to upgrade to Windows 8.1. But Windows updates said there were over a hundred updates needed to be installed. My Question is do I need to install any of these Windows 8 updates before upgrading to Windows 8.1?

Update: Solved. I Only needed 2 updates after my fresh install of Windows 8: KB2871389 and KB2917499. The download links were found in the Tutorials section on this site. Was finally able to Download Windows 8.1 from the Store App. A Big Thanks to EightForums with those Tutorials.
