Windows 7: Downloading Standalone Win Updates - Prob?

Downloading Standalone Win Updates - Prob?

I'm making another slipstreamed Win 7 disc, and figured I might as well integrate the few new MSUs since last month. I'm following Brink's tutorial again. However, these are the pages I've come to so far. Nowhere is there anything to download. Even following a bunch of the links, I see nothing that indicates I can download the update itself.

Has Microsoft changed something? How can I get these standalone updates now?

I don't know how I have never done it before. My thoughts are go to M/S website find their search box and type in the MSxxxxx and hit search.

It's alright I guess. I just kept googling the KB#s and found all the Windows updates. Though, I don't even know how Windows Update was trying to update my ATI Radeon GPU. I mean great, but I couldn't find those updates online.

Ahah, wait a sec. Those updates for my ATI Radeons. See pic.



Those links lead to gibberish...

Except for the error, this doesn't even say exactly what those updates are...

For driver updates try the Microsoft Update Catalog
I usually go to the manufacturer for drivers but I've snagged a few here when I wanted just the driver and not the whole install package.

Wow, yes! That's perfect! Thank you so much!

I want to make sure I get as many updates integrated into this as possible so any future reinstalls go fast and smooth. I like to keep my OS very clean, and with this rig having a separate data disk I'm sure to be more apt to do clean installs. This will surely help for future reference, too! (I just wish it didn't have to open in IE... lol)

I download the full stand alone versions of DirectX, IE, Media player, service packs, etc and save them to a thumb drive for use after a clean install. I don't bother with the various small updates patches etc. I don't have any interest in playing with nlite or vlite or whatever, and they just take to long to install separately. If I was on dial up I might think about doing what your doing. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against what your doing its just not my cup of tea. For the most part I go to the major manufacturers for chip-set, video and audio drivers. The windows update catalog can be handy though for getting drivers without all the bundled bloatware you sometimes get. They can be tricky to install sometimes though.
