Keep in mind the combination of updates are only for clean installing win-7
KB3125574 will most likely restart a couple times seeing it's an unofficial sp2 and will notably take the longest to install.

KB3172605 will also ask to restart to finish.

You can if you know how make your own iso
I've never done it this is a tad out of date seeing KB3172605 now contains the newest windows update client.

Hi ThrashZone,

i did not format my whole disk because if i had done it, there wouldnt be an error i think. (so no clean install)
Anyway i tried to install all 3 updates you posted before:
  • Update 1: It was already installed on my system.
  • Update 2: Installation and configuration without any mistakes
  • Update 3: Same as Update 2
Still I had the error with DirectD3D, so i just tried to install my update (KB2670838) with hope that the configuration will work this time.
And wonder, it really does. No error in configuration. And no DirectD3D error anymore.

So it seems like the KB2670838 isnt included in the 2nd update.

But anyway i really thank you very much, wish you a nice day and much luck in your life.
World needs friendly and helpful people like you.

Thanks for the feedback :)

I would imagine there are other updates to install the second update would only go through April 2016
