Windows 7: Simplifying updates for Windows 7 and 8.1

19 May 2016   #71

Windows 7
 
 

So I did a test:

1. Clean installed Win 7 Home Premium x64 upgrade CD.

2. Installed standalone SP1.

3. Installed KB3020369.

4. Installed KB3125574 rollup.

5. Set WU to never check for updates and connected to network.

6. Ran manual check for updates...

3-1/2 hours later it found 30 important updates and 35 optional updates, dating back to 2014. Some of them I expected, like IE, .NET, and MSRT, but there were 19 security updates! One update claimed to be SP1, although it was only 9MB.

I did a spot check on the updates that Microsoft says are *not* included in the rollup - they didn't correspond to what WU was offering me.

Better than 200+ updates I guess, but not at all what I was expecting based on the rollup description.

It looks like one needs KB3020369 whether you're doing a regular install or slipstreaming.

No problem here, you just need to integrate the prerequisite April 2015 servicing stack update (KB3020369) first.

You may also need to follow Brds7t7 suggestion in post #31
Anak you were quite right. Once I'd added that other update to the mix it worked.
Now to figure out how to burn a new DVD with what files etc.

I tried this and run the updates after and it found 600mb worth of updates.

Then after I ran it again and found a further 100mb of updates, then gave up.

Still got many updates. Some dated back to 2014.

I thought this was all updates so why was it downloading so much

Here's an article that explains everything nicely, with some convenient direct download links and also a list of all the updates included in the rollup package:

Feel free to move my post if it belongs in another thread. Thanks.

That doesn't sound right at all. There should not be so many updates still to download, there was nowhere near that on mine. Sounds like that didn't install correctly?

As an additional heads up... if anybody is expecting this to solve the slow Windows Update problem, it doesn't.
Ran updates again today in that same VM and still taking hours to check.
Which is why I'm still convinced that this is an issue at Microsoft's end and not with anybody's particular PC and why the workarounds posted only seem to work temporarily.

Mine today resulted in 29 important updates left to apply including IE11 and yes it took forever so there is still a problem with that.

I am shocked I have been following some tests that others have done - your findings and conclusion are the same. Unfortunately it has become manic. At times you get fast access and shortly after you are back to glacial speed. We are all part of a big experiment.

OK have "slipstreamed" the rollup into my disk image but how to burn these to DVD? I can't seem to make a bootable DVD - IMGBurn refuses to accept all the files below and Nero rejects when DVD Boot is selected saying install.wim is too large, select DVD UDF.
