Which Updates should (or not) I use for a clean Win7 sp1?


Recommended Posts

Hi!

I have been wondering about this for a long time now

 

I know I can use all in "Hotfix" folder but after that...

Now, we have 4 more folders in there and for us "ordinary" people who just know enough to make

a quite updated windisc have no clue what we can use in there.

I have no idea what most of the things in "additional" and "extra" folders are.

"General" and "Security" I guess I can use.

 

What happens if I choose everything except earlier Explorers?

Will such an installation image work and is there a benefit vs only hotfixes?

 

I have always only used the normal hotfixes because I just don't know.

Feel like a newbie now when I asked this but I think there are a lot of people that

don't know these things.

 

To google up everything should take a while and would probably not make me much wiser

on which I shouldn't use

 

If someone could spread a little light on this I would be Happy :D

General - Security - Hotfix.. are the main updates that are safe to use for all systems

regarding the difference between Additional & Extra Categories, the reason for having those two categories is for better organizing and to ease the download process for the average user

Just a question.

Is there a lot of duplicates in the update folders?

I chose:

 

Security - 51 updates

General - 44 updates

Hotfix - 523 updates

Sum: 618 updates

 

But when I added these it says: Updates + Languages (526)

Seems like its quite a few missing (or it's something I am missing) :)

It ended up with 555 updates instead of 618

I'm a bit confused, after download latest and delete supersedes for all folders:

 

All hash duplicates (22):

hashsxbwn3fphc2.jpg

 

All name duplicates (19):

namesdpcu17s8ki.jpg

 

Win7 x64 Items: 578

Win7 x86 Items: 551

(Without languages/SPs)

 

Whats wrong at my system?

And its wanted to have duplicates like the latest in hash list?

There is nothing wrong (explicitly :D)

IE Prerequisites are clear enough (i'm thinking of changing the way for providing them to a single text file, this way we can get rid of the duplication situation)

AD LDS & RSAT duplicates are necessary to have them in both locations, because each of them contain components that are applicable for both packages

same for RDC8.1 and RDP8.0

this also includes KB2834140, it's bi-update (meaning its components are applicable with and without Platform KB2670838)

IE10 CABs:

KB2764913 is the same IE-Hyphenation-en, i changed the name to KB2764913 to avoid duplication with IE11 Hyphenation

same thing goes for KB2764916 and IE-Spelling-en

KB2764916 + KB2764913 are neutral packages (meaning x86 and x64 are the same file)

so, you need to delete IE-Hyphenation-en + IE-Spelling-en from IE10 CABs folder

KB2892074 and KB2893294 and KB2900635:

apparently those duplication is a temporary error or something caused by WHD

you can safely delete Windows8.1-KB2900635-x86 from x64 folder

and redownload KB2892074, KB2893294 for windows8.1

Ahhh okay i understand, thx. :)

 

Mhh.. may for prevent to use different (more) folders?

Example:

 

ATM its:

IE10 Updates* (some same in 11)

IE11 Updates* (some same in 10)

 

should:

IE10 Updates* (unique 10)

IE11 Updates* (unique 11)

IE Updates* (unique - for both, 10 & 11)

 

What u think about?

Nah i mean more folders instead of duplicates:

(Sorry iv wrong described was i mean.. :) )

 

Here, at the moment its, example:

...\Additional\RDC8.1 Prerequisites\KB2834140
...\Additional\RDC8.0 Prerequisites\KB2834140

So KB2834140 is doubled.

 

May better:

...\Additional\RDC8.1 Prerequisites\
...\Additional\RDC8.0 Prerequisites\

...\Additional\RDC Prerequisites\KB2834140

And now the RDC-Folder include an unique KB2834140, instead of both folders.

The 8.1 and 8.0 folders includes each unique items they just for each 8.1 and 8.0.

The RDC includes for all RDC versions, for example.

 

Explanation:

Better to make a own Folder for these "bi-updates" (for example), with no name-prefix that's then for is for all versions.

So, yea sure the prefix-way is clear, but in this new way would be just one file needed for download/keep-on-disk instead of duplicates. :)

      Hi, since around 1.5 half years i am integrating Updates into our Windows Image at our Company. However i have noticed that even when all the latest Updates are integrated after installing the OS it shows a few ".NET Framework" Updates that couldn't be integrated (see Attachment). A year ago it were only around 10, now around 15. So its getting more and more, it hinders the usfulness of the Slipstreaming process a bit.
      Did anyone of you find a way to integrate this pesky ".NET" Updates into the Image?
      Thanks for the help.

      Good evening everyone!
       
      I've been using WinToolkit since a lot of years to integrate updates in Windows Installations. Recently I redid my Win7 x64 Installation. I removed the ei.cfg and integrated all major "General" "Security" and "Hotfix" Updates. After integrating I created an ISO and started it in a virtual Machine. But upon booting it only says 
       
      CDBOOT: COULDN´T FIND BOOTMGR
       
      I don't know what the problem is, especially since my x86 Version started without any issues and in the past there was nothing comparable. Can you tell me what might have went wrong and how I can fix this? 
       
      Thank you for all suggestions in advance and have a nice day!

      Host OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
      Image OS: Windows 7 x64
      Windows ADK for 8.1 installed: Yes (I used this link http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=39982)
       
      In WinToolkit v1.5.3.12, when I add the kb2603229, kb3035126, kb3035132 they show up and the program says they are integrated.
       
      But when I test the image, Windows updates says they are not integrated.
       
      They are integrated when I use the dism command in cmd.
