    I got KB3034196 now, KB2980654 never. BTW, first batch of updates downloaded, not installed but after that broke my internet until restarted, only after restart they installed OK.

    Same in my Dell Venue 8 Pro tab. I restarted tab without any indication of progress in installing updates in Windows update shown to me, stuck in Installing updates for 12hrs in the close down screen.

    For now, I just force shutdown my tab & not going to install them as of now.

    For a fresh install, starting with Win 8.1 Pro OEM DVD disk bought from computer shop, is there one update which acts like the old Service Pack that can be saved, and removes the need to download all previous updates?

    Considering the number of botched, revised and/or pulled updates over the last 6 months I doubt if such a thing exists if it ever did with windows 8.1.

    Check Option One in this tutorial. Last time I downloaded it was 8.1 with Update (also called Update 1) so it probably has more then a DVD you can buy. Works with all keys.

    Thanks heaps, Jim, that's exactly what I'm after.

    I also bought the original Win 8 Pro OEM disk from a computer shop. Would the key from this disk work on the 8.1 Pro ISO for my 2nd computer?
