Windows 7: Update your Win 7 installation media

They might be needed for nvme disks. If you get one of those in the future, you could always just install those two updates into your running system.

Nvme disks are not the same as sata ssd. Nvme disks are quite new and still very expensive. Unlikely you would get one.

It is not necessary to integrate those two updates into the installation media.

I suggest you use the new 7UPv42.zip which is now on the first post of this thread

I now have the 7upv42 and trying to work out what more I need. I have read dozens of pages of stuff and seen mention of Simplix Update Pack. Looking for a source it seems to only come from Majorgeeks and a couple of other malware loaded sites. The Integrate7 script looks interesting but it includes all updates up to November 2019. I read on one of the many links that W7 runs better without any updates after about mid 2017. In any case, it seems that Integrate7 can be downloaded from this site and I assume it would be safe.? Such a shame I can't get some knowledgeable soul to put something together. Or at least a step by step tutorial using plain English on how to do it. From what I have been told, Linux is even worse.

My new Double Layer DVD drive has arrived. I'm only waiting on a double layer blank disk to arrive so I can get started. I have a feeling I should have ordered more than one but the expense is crazy here.

You don't need to hunt around for anything.


Run the 7updaterv42.cmd

It will ask you to browse to installation media

It will offer to add the drivers that are already in Drivers folder to boot.wim. Type Y and then press enter

When it has done that ( very quick a minute or so) I will ask if you want to unmount the image, Type Y and then press enter

Then it will ask if you want to download Simplix. Say Yes and it will download it for you.
Might take several minutes to download as it depends on your internet connection.

It will tell which images are in the installation media.

Then it will ask which image you want to update . You can select one of the images or * for ALL images.

Then it proceeds.

I can take a while to integrate the simplix updates - perhaps an hour - depends on your machine.

Whole-hearted thanks for the clear and concise instructions. Just one wee question.
"You can select one of the images....." What are the images I must choose from. Do you mean which version of W7, or some other choices?
