    Windows 8.1 Update 1


    What if you buy a Windows 8.1 PC without the update installed after May 13th? Will the update still be available to download and install?

    Welcome to Windows EightForums, williamsjesse17.

    Yes. It should update right away via Windows Update. Do you have it set to automatically download and install updates?

    I don't have the computer yet. I will have it in May.

    I should have it before May 13th. I was just panicky, because I don't want to lose support.

    It will probably come with the update already. The update was released to OEMs long before we got it.
