Old version= 7600.16385.090713-1255_x86fre_client_en-us_Retail_Ultimate-GRMCULFRER_EN_DVD
Newew Version= en_windows_7_ultimate_x86_dvd_x15-65921

both iso have same hash


Running "System Information", it reported this :

Anyone know anything about this ?

Newew Version= en_windows_7_ultimate_x86_dvd_x15-65921
65921 is in the name of the Download I think, and i guess it doesnt have any connection with the build number or anything. Check the other Download, it has 8592x something.

Edit : yup its the file name
Win 7 Ultimate x64- File Name: en_windows_7_ultimate_x64_dvd_x15-65922.iso
Win 7 Ultimate x86- File Name: en_windows_7_ultimate_x64_dvd_x15-65921.iso

So its the same ISO image.
On the other hand adding a newer build means Newer files are there, and that means the Hash Must Change. So you can think about it either way.

@ pmc

You said you upgraded from a version which already had the new KB972636 installed? Then of course the TechNet or any other will report the new build number. How can you not realise this?

The handful of (leaked) updates that are out there will elevate the build to 16399.

I believe only one of them has officially made it to Windows Update so far. KB972636 installs an IE compatibility list update. I don't believe it's the one that updates the build number.

There is not a "newer" build via Technet. It remains the exact same thing MS declared RTM, and has been unaltered since.

Last I checked, KB675605 is the supposed GDR update that changes the kernel, and it's not yet officially out, nor was it incorporated into the (unaltered) Technet release.

Hi again i had 7600.16385.090713-1255_x86fre_client_en-us_Retail_Ultimate-GRMCULFRER_EN_DVD installed + the oem patches.

I upgraded to en_windows_7_ultimate_x86_dvd_x15-65921 ( i was surprised here ) and after installed again the oem patches.

The "Windows6.1-KB972636-x86" was the only one that didnt installed as it was already there.

I dont recall that update coming from windosupdate.

1. Did you get the Later Download from Technet ?
2. and What do you mean by OEM Patches ? (If its the Crack dont explain about it, just say yes)
