    New Version V4 on first post.

    Use the provided d/l lists - they are zipped on first pot.

    Fixed bugs, reduced number of updates required.

    Does the selected Updates List load itself into the WUD? I dont' see a step to do this except to extract the files and select bit-version. It says it loaded, but where?

    Running it now. Seems it auto-loaded the list into program.

    Is there an easy way to slip a few drivers into the driver store without having to 7lite, just copying them into an installer folder on bootable flash stick?

    I can put something in to optionally include drivers.

    Yes, it should be quicker, about 1/2 hr to run it.

    I found myself reading this whole thread as it looks very interesting, but I suppose I should ask what exactly is this test aimed towards? It seems to be a home brew SP2 perhaps? If thats the case do you recommend this process upon installing 7 for the first time on a custom built computer?

    I would. Saves about an hour of Updates freeing you up to get right to work on programs and setting it up. You'll need to decide if you like the tweaks which were added, as do I. But if not Si posted the reg keys earlier to reverse them, or just wipe and reinstall with the latest official installer with SP1.

    It isn't a test any more.

    You can go ahead and follow instructions in post 1.

    I have got the updates pretty much right , avoiding superseded.

    It is easy if you just follow instructions.

    What it does:

    1) Integrates the security and non-security updates into your installation media. ( IE10 is included - but other optionals are up to you ).

    2 ) Includes some small enhancements - simple reg entries to add copy to and move to , elevated command, etc to context menu.

    If you don't want those, you can just delete/rename/alter the .reg files in the BIN folder.

    It is in effect your own SP2.

    You use it exactly the same way as the original installation media.

    Clean install, Upgrade install, Repair install, whatever you can do with original media - you can do with this.

    Wow looks awesome. Great job SI I'll be sure to keep this bookmarked when I get my system prepared.

    Just reinstalled. 3 updates plus another 2 drivers under Optional. Bliss.

    Si, why do I have to enable Hibernate which I have not before on this test machine? Taking away by default such a modern feature which is perfected in Win7 and offers great convenience for the consumer is a definite minus.
