    Yes, it should have tried to integrate all .msu files in the folders created by WUD.

    Sounds like you have mucked around with the folder structure.

    I downloaded Windows updates using WUD, copied my Win7 Pro x64 CD to my SSD and was able to get UPDATE7v5 to run with 216 .msu files in my windows update directory (I moved all the files to the same folder).
    --- EDIT IN RED --- I should not have moved the .MSU files (or have unchecked the box in WUD which saves the updates in folders by category. Looking at the .CMD itself I see it looks in the specific folders. Running again, expecting no problems this time. ---
    After UPDATE7V5 mounted the Windows installation, it proceeded very quickly - I remember seeing "6 of 6" and within 30 seconds it was done. I could not find a log file showing what I saw on the screen as the program ran and didn't figure out how to scroll back in the buffer to get the info.

    My question is: does this sound like a normal execution? I expected to see "1 of 216" ... or at least "1 of 200" if 6 of the .msu files did not apply...

    You can update your 7 installation media exactly per instructions.

    If you would rather update your recovery media, you would need to copy the install.wim onto your HD and point at it when asked.

    It is likely a split wim structure, so you need to join them first.

    DVD recovery media


    Copy install .win file to external hard drive
    and follow tutorial posted as was instructed... correct?...

    First. Option I dint quite understand, if it's more complex to do it with dvd media, or what is straight
    forward approach to do that!
    Note.
    I just have reinstall from scratch last year, what will be beneficial to my since I have done
    fresh restore.

    Thank you for you post, again.

    Anyone who wants to give this a try:

    1. Put your win7 dvd in the drive, rt click it and select COPY. Then rt click your partition (e.g. C ) and PASTE.
    It will take a few mins and you should have afolder on c containing the installation files, like this:

    2. Install WUD - tiny program:

    Attachment 259230

    [ Windows Updates Downloader (WUD) Program Files ]

    Get the relevant update list Windows Updates Downloader (WUD) Update Files (ULs)

    Unzip the update list you downloaded and click the ulz file.Then the list will show up when you run WUD.exe


    Run WUD

    Select a folder to download them to ( e.g. c:\updates ). Recommended tick boxes as below - ( ie10 optional ). Then click Download button

    3. Extract this onto C. UPDATE7v5.zip

    Attachment 285818

    Then RUN AS ADMIN on the .cmd

    And off it goes

    It will take a while to integrate the updates - probably half an hour or so. Then it will offer to make a bootable installation iso.

    NOTE: This assumes you start with the 7 iso that already has SP1 integrated.

    latest official Win7 installer ISO with SP1

    NOTE: When you boot your updated iso, all editions will be available - however, only the edition you updated will include the updates, of course.
    Hello now you will have to forgive my ignorance because I am not too bright with this stuff is this to make updating quicker or saves them for another install should you need to do one?

    I have just spent the last three hours reinstalling 7 onto my spare laptop and as usual most of the updates go in ok but others fail then reappear as fresh ones then install ok so if this for saving them or make updating easier I will try it as it will obviously save time.

    Yes, that is what it is for. Useful for clean install and upgrade/repair install.

    Might be a dodgy update in Steven's latest list you got from WUD.

    Here are the lists dated 27/2/15: win7-sp1-x86-x64.zip
