Default Re: is it possible to

define "windows update"

If you're talking about an individual update, then yes.

If you're talking about the entire OS + configuration, then no.

I don't think it's possible what you are trying to do.
Why not just download them again

I would have to agree with Biker, I would just download them over again...

Besides it doesn't take that long to download them as long as your connection is good, you can let the computer update while you do other things.

Why not just download them all or get service pack 1 and do it.
