I have a computer with Windows 8 which has recently been formatted. Now I have gone through the two-day process of installing all available updates, and also Windows 8.1, with the goal to get to Windows 8.1 Update 3 which would bring back the start button to Windows.
Now I have found, that update KB3033055 would introduce this function. However, it was not installed during the update procedure and now the computer does not find any more updates. Manual installation after downloading "windows8.1-kb3033055-arm_1b0aeee420c6ad850de7cfac0c485d4bd7965f71.msu" does not work either (an error message shows up stating that this update is not available for this computer).
On the Microsoft page regarding this update I now have read that there are "known issues" with installation of this update:
Symptom: If you install KB3033055 (released September 2015) after installing any Monthly Rollup dated November 2017 or later, your device may not start up properly. Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
Workaround: If you choose to install KB3033055, which is an optional update, we recommend that you install it before installing later update packages.
Well, of course I installed updates released after November 2017 already. How would I be able to install KB3033055 now? Or, in the worst case, if I would have to format the computer again and go through all the update procedure, how could I make sure to not install post-November 2017 updates again before installing KB3033055? Any suggestion is very welcome.
