Windows 7: Is there an easier way to install Win 7?

Is there an easier way to install Win 7?

Now that I have a free open License Win 7 Ultimate I decided to install it on my older laptop.

I got a good copy of Win7 from MS Media Creator and installed via an ISO version on DVD.
After that install I got the SP1 update which went well.

Now I try and update the rest which is like 197 updates and the up[dater keeps freezing and I have to use MS Updater tool a few times to get it back going.
So now we are trying to install 167 updates and about 43 optional ones.

Is there an easier way to do a fresh clean install? (Oh Installing 32 bit version so I could use my desktop at all)

You could download Simplix updatepack ( about 850mb) and run it. It reboots and cleans up .

January version should be available in a day or two.

Thanks. In all my years I have not seen this now heard about this packet install.
That is nice of them to do it.

I'm still installing the old fashion way and I think I'm up to over 200 so far. lol
Restarts must be at least 10 by now and comping up to 24 hours since I started.
Sometimes I wonder if it's all worth it.

Can you start that Simplix update program at any time or is it really after the initial Win7 install that you can use it?

Do they pack one similar for Win 10? Can't find much on who is doing it.
