Can one 'merge' SP files into W-7 install disks, like one can do with XP??

I have a machine that I am "sticking with Windows 7" on and won't encounter having to install hundreds of updates since it's kept up-to-date. I have a couple of Win 7 VMs as well and don't anticipate creating any others so I shouldn't experience the "pain" described in the article. I think many others are in the same category. Only those doing a clean install of Win 7 will be effected.

Cornemuse, there are a few different programs which can do that for you. Here is just one example:

This is an international site where people can deal with many languages. I myself have no problem with 5 languages. So I don't think links should be restricted to English only.
Since German is your first language, mayhap you could help us out by translating the key points on the site and point out what the links are for? Not all of us are gifted with the ability to deal with more language like you are (I'm not being sarcastic, just jealous ).
If you use Chrome and have the Google Translate extension you get a fair translation to English automatically.

Start and complete the install without an internet connection
Immediately after install is complete
Manually install KB3083710 and restart.
Manually install KB3102810 and restart.
Change your windows update settings I used Automatic and Unchecked Give me recommended updates the same....
Restore the Internet connection and Activate windows
Then launch Windows Update search
After about 5-10 minutes you should have plenty of updates to download and install.

Another thing is if you see this update make sure it is not installed with any other updates
It needs to be installed all by it's self
It was not uncheck automatically which caused many others to fail to install

Windows 8 pro upgrade was the bitch
I finally had to do 50 at a time until finished :/
Then finally got to download 8.1 pro which went fast as 7 did
I'm a bit confused ThrashZone as to why this was really necessary.

I'll face this problem eventually since I have an unused retail Windows 7 (Home Premium).
I planned to download then install Important updates only and Not recommended+optional. Is this a bad approach???

No not at all just Important updates is the way to go = excluding Recommended ones of course
Most the issues are because of windows self updating the second it gets internet connection it updates to a bad version of update client and is tough to overcome.

I tried to create a disc using RT7Lite a few years ago.
It was a total bust.
Note:
I didn't use Brink's guide.

Luckily I downloaded a W7+SP1 disc from Digital River (just before it ended).

SP1 wasn't what was being referred to actually it's all the Important updates since sp1
I wish someone would make a sp2 = not Microsoft some other kind soul
