What are the benefits of installing updates through the command line?

i'm confused. what's the story with this build? it's just got some hotfixes slipstreamed, right? i heard from someone that this may be the build that technet gets. but if so, the hotfixes still have to go live because OEMs got the older build, right?

i sure hope i don't have to reinstall again, i thought i was done for a while...

It's not really a different "build," at least for the moment.

There are simply a handful of updates/patches, some of which do alter build numbers.

It should be known within 24 hours or so what shows up places like Technet, and if these patches have been slipstreamed into the RTM somehow, or if they'll show up on Windows Update later. (Or, for that matter, they might not ever show up or get further modified before release, etc.)

I strongly suggest that everyone stay away from these updates. I have had major issues after installing them with my USB ports on my laptop, extreme slowdowns, and my desktop completely crashed twice. Without these updates everything has worked fine. There may be some benefit to them, but I have a feeling they are experimental updates. You have been warned.

Ok today is 2 december I'm using RTM.7600 for a long time and I didn't recive any of this updates for GDR, and I have seen that the updates vanish from a lot of sites for antipiracying. Hoever some peopele say that with this updates the pc boot's faster. The only ones that can tell us wat's the real version of windows 7 are only those how buyed an original Windows7 disc.

If you applied the fake/beta testing updates that the OP of this thread posted then you have a corrupted installation, just reinstall.

I got all the windows updates as normal so far using the windows update app.

You should only install the updates which comes directly from Windows Update. No need to dowload leaked updates, which Microsoft also advice not to do. No reason to get them. Or yeah maybe they make your pc faster, but wait till it get full released and the effect will be better.
