    Well..I dont recommend pirating (no sane person would ADMIT to recommending it) but if you did, you are correct you cannot do system updates. But something you must know is that most "critical" system updates are just that...they'll make your system critical. Most updates do MORE harm than good from Microsoft. However, when a good update does come along, usually someone hacks it, and packages it to install on pirated copies, so I've heard.
