Correct, that is why it is better to update the OS after the repair install with DISM++ or SIMPLIX because neither of these include Telemetry or other undesired updates!

See my comment above!

Yes, it will be problematic!

I hope this helps!

A repair install leaves installed programs intact, so therefore the drivers for those programs will also be left intact!

I hope this helps!

@Paul Black : Thanks for answering one of my questions.

But...

Using DISM++ for win 7 updates is not a good choice. Simplix is perfect!

Hope it helps!

EDIT: To correct myself : When M$ support ( Windows Updates ) ends for win 7, At least driver support would continue. In feeble memories of Vista, I think I got driver support even after the end of support but I am not sure!

Thanks & Regards. ...

I disagree to a certain extent!

With regard to just using DISM++ for updates, if you have a problem WU which cannot be installed using the .msu or wusa, DISM++ can sometimes come through and install it!

DISM++ is extremely good generally, but SIMPLIX is the preferred method when doing WU's!

I understand that DISM++ does not use Windows Update engine for updates so can come good at times but the automatic selection is poor. it does not select all the recommended & security updates on its own. They all are listed but not selected, so one has to dig deep or refer other resources to select the recommended updates one by one & also make sure that all prerequisites are also included/selected as well.

But I agree Simplix is the best!

Thanks & Regards. ...

About 750MB => SIMPLIX UpdatePack [use Google to view as it translates].
