Windows 7: Update your Win 7 installation media

at what point do you get the message?

Is it when setup is trying to extract the files from the wim? "expanding files"

Sounds like there is something corrupt in the image.


You could try applying the image instead of using windows setup.

Dism++ can be used to apply an image to a partition. You will find it under "repair your computer"

Ok when it tells you there is less than 5gb of scratch. You don't need much for this .

If that doesn't work, then you will need to build the installation media again. Turn off av and anything else that could interfere with the build process.

Yes it's when the setup is "expanding files", happens every time at 51%


Just tried applying the image using dism++ and errored too - "Error: The handle is invalid" - this happened while it was accessing 'windows\system32\driverstore\filerepository\prnca00g.inf_amd64_neutral_6f76b14b2912fa55\amd64\CNB7U KCA.ICM'


I'll build the iso again with avast turned off, just a few questions to make sure I'm doing this all right, sorry if they're stupid this is my first time doing this - once an installation has failed is it fine to just try to reinstall again I don't need to format the ssd or anything like that?


And these are all the steps I'm taking - is this correct?:


unzip 7UPv50 to c:
place UPDATEPACK7R2+.exe in 7up folder
place 7UPDRIVERS.7z in the bin folder
extract X17-59465.iso to desktop folder 'EXTRACTED-ISO'

run 7updaterv50.cmd as admin
point it to the extracted X17-59465.iso folder 'EXTRACTED-ISO'

'the operation was completed successfully'
unmount boot.wim
update all editions
use iso-create.cmd on the 'EXTRACTED-ISO' folder to create 7601_17514_en-US_x64.iso

create bootable USB with rufus from 7601_17514_en-US_x64.iso - usb formatted to fat32
partition scheme GPT / target system UEFI (non CSM)


edit: rebuilt the iso, gave the same error again at 51% when the setup is "expanding files"

Format the partition before applying the new image. Quick format is fine.

Desktop might be a long path. Probably best to extract iso to the root of the partition, e.g. c:\extracted-iso,

install.wim will be over 4gb with updates integrated. How did you fit it on fat32 usb stick?

Maybe try it without integrating the extra driver pack to save abit of time.

I am working on a fix for the change that has been made to the simplix updatepack. It automatically mounts winre, which interferes with the final commands before unmounting the edition image.

Did you attach a picture? Looks like the forum software issue has returned. This is how it looks to me using Firefox (note that I am "attaching" my own screenshot as you did, rather than pointing to an external image site via URL):
