  • Hi,

    You can simply re-initiate the installer. Even if you cancelled the installation :)

    If is during setup halfway and you shutdown the computer without completing it.

    You might need to boot to safemode to delete some windows setup registry.

    But I hope that you are not facing that.

    Meaning to say you don't need to wait for automatic update next month to update the service pack 3.

    You can simply also go to "Microsoft Download center" to download service pack 3 and install it immediately.

  • Diego Arellano,

    No you don't have to wait at all. You just download SP3 and re-install it onto your PC, here is the link:
