The following steps are only for the fearless!

Use Windows 10 1607 with no updates (from pre-Meltdown-and-Spectre era)
would any of these steps be recommended for desktop live use? I'm just configuring a new build for live use. I believe my current live build is still at 1607, so maybe I could just clone that OS to the new machine. Can I get it to work just using driver updates then, without needing to update windows? I will need (as the old system did) to get online several times a year to update and authorize VSTs.... rarely enough to avoid windows trying to update itself

The new system is an 8700k, if that matters....
