Sadly, I'm not stranger to BSODs when it comes to big updates or Windows version upgrades. This is why I always prefer clean installs. I'll need to dig into driver issues, disabling fast boot, removing external devices, etc. I currently have enough on my plate and troubleshooting Windows update issues tends to irritate me amazingly quickly along with sidetracking me from taking care of other things because I won't let it go and get even more irritated. Thanks for the links. I'll definitely give them a look. For now, however, I'm going to stick a pin in it. There's definitely no need to rush to update.
