A (maybe complicated?) way to update ISO


Recommended Posts

Maybe someone has already suggested the same but I failed to find their post. So, here's my thought..

Let's say I make a Win7 Home Premium x86 ISO with my serial (because I bought it, of course) with all updates up to today. And I keep that ISO on my drive for various purposes (virtual machine experiments, netbook installation, testing purposes). A month later that ISO will be outdated, there will be new updates. So, I fire up Win Toolkit, go to Downloads and Update Catalog. Here's what I'm thinking: is it possible for Win Toolkit to scan what updates are already in my extracted ISO's folder so it only offers me new ones and not 400+ of every update since SP1 release?

Update Retriever would not work because I'm doing all this on an x64 machine while the ISO in question is x86.

tl;dr is it possible for Win Toolkit to scan my extracted ISO's folder for installed updates and only offer me the new ones?

Thanks and keep up the good work.

PS - On one hand, this might be a long shot because I know how things went with nLite (errors and incompatibilities), on the other hand, XP is nothing like 7.

Edit: Hope I'm not too late: in the current version of Win Toolkit, after installing updates to a 7 SP1 ISO's extracted folder, the Component Removal (under Advanced) shows all of these freshly installed updates. I don't want to remove them since I've just installed them - aren't they supposed to be hidden or am I missing something? Yeah, I know I could easily ignore them but on the other hand it makes (in my opinion) the list much much longer.

Edit: Another request. In Win Toolkit's options, is it possible to arrange that when I manually pick my Temp folder that it does not create another WinToolkit folder within? Or does it have to be this way in order for software to work? Just wondering..

I believe it is this way because if the "normal" Temp folder is used it probably has all kinds of junk in it from many different apps. For Win Toolkit to be able to easily clean up after itself it puts all its files in a subfolder of the Temp folder. To be consistent, if you then specify a different "Temp" folder, ie a different outer shell, it will still create a subfolder for ease of cleanup, since Win Toolkit has no way of knowing if that temp folder is being used for anything else or not. I think it is all done for consistency, safety, and ease of programming.

Cheers and Regards

Ah, makes sense then. I was under the wrong impression that it only needs a random temp folder and only deletes its own temp files in the said folder. Smart move, when I think about it :)

That's exactly why, also in the past some members did select their drive root and then said WinToolkit (or W7T at the time) had deleted all of their music, films, etc.. off their partition.

DISM already checks if an update is integrated or not, but it would be way to complicated to have Update Catalog mix with WIM images detection. Also when you load up Update Catalog it will show you what's new compared to when the last time you opened it, so this feature isn't really needed.

      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.

      I want to integrate last upadates into Windows 7 SP1-U ISO and I have two doubts:
      1. Does KB3172605 (July 2016 update rollup) replace KB3156417 (May 2016 update rollup)?
      2. Integrate KB3170455 (update for Windows Print Spooler)? Supposedly it stops non-admin users from installing a network-printer :/
      What set of updates is the best to integrate (KB in exact order):
      KB3020369 kb3125574-v4 KB3168965 KB3172605

      I have a Problem with the Updates i would like to intergrate some updates in my install.win but the Problem ist, that if i would like to intergrate the updates the mark are yellow and not green. On the state the say me install pending. If i install a Windows machine with the iso the updates are not installed but why ?
       
      Its a Windows 7 ISO.
      If i would like to intergrate the Updates with the Updates installer, and i add all updates that i would intergrate to my install.wim file it says Not compatible with 10240 : "and the source to my update"
      What did i make not correctly ?

      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!
