Post #3 already covers that option, seems someone already did that work (link is in german, though). No idea how reliable it actually is.

Used it on many installs, both VM and main system. Did a clean install for my brother couple weeks ago and his internet is painfully slow so used that update pack instead. I think he would have been waiting about 3 weeks for all the updates to appear
Never had any issues with that update pack myself. The website is in German but the installer is all in English.

Just an installer EXE file. Run it as you would a normal program, the installer gives you options like "extract the updates but not install". You can also select which updates to exclude. So can skip the Windows 10 updates as long as you know the KB numbers.

Okay yea I'd want one with only the important updates = no recommended or optional.

You could extract all the updates from the pack, check all the KB numbers with the articles and delete all the recommended/optional then write a batch file to install all the Important updates. I think I have a batch file to install updates but there is no way I'm going through them all
I don't think anybody has made one with just the important updates.
Or just exclude the Windows 10 updates then remove which updates you don't want after the install. Either way, it's going to take a while!

Yep without knowing how the installer sort the updates it would be a chore to go through all of them manually there's about 60 to be excluded

Someone mentioned slipstreaming updates to create a new install disc and RT7Lite was mentioned.

It didn't work for me and if it didn't work a few years ago slipstreaming SP1 and a few updates, I doubt it will work now with 100s of additional updates.

I realise that people want SP2 (I know I do).
Of course if MS ever released SP2 they would probably slip in the GWX updates too.
