  1. Win7 post-SP1 patches

    AFAIK, Win7 only got SP2
  2. Windows Update settings page on version 1703

    No you don't need strangely, i have some policies set, and WU settings page sometimes don't show that administrator messege
  3. No you either edit install.wim registry, or use RunSynchronousCommand in autounattend.xml / specialize pass
  4. That's definitely the right way to do, no chopping i use similar approch i can actually "prevent" installing most of "unneeded" system apps with deleteing one registry key for each prior installation (or during setup pass specialize) set key=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Appx\AppxAllUserStore\InboxApplications FOR %%i IN ( holocamera holoitemplayerapp HoloShell PPIProjection AppRep.ChxApp ContentDeliveryManager CortanaListenUIApp Cortana Holograms HolographicFirstRun ParentalControls SecHealthUI SecureAssessmentBrowser XboxGameCallableUI ) DO ( FOR /F %%a IN ('reg query %key% /s /f %%i /k 2^>nul ^| find /i "InboxApplications"') DO IF NOT ERRORLEVEL 1 (reg delete %%a /f 2>nul) ) note: in ver 1703, preventing Cortana will make Start Menu greyed (functional but not clickable)
  5. Win 10 v1703 cumulative update is still lite, so it won't fail for now by chopping i mean removing internal packages and "nLiting" the OS extensively how did you reduced your OS?
  6. Chopping and updating Windows 10 is a lost cause you can have one of them, not both
  7. Windows 7 on a Kaby Lake laptop

    Yes, MSU files uses WUA engine however, dism + cab files can pass that
  8. Need specific IE 11 version

  10. Just an update for the situation now, March 2016 Client KB3138612 fixes the issue as well, for clean install systems at least
  11. It's not atomic bomb most of work is done manually i described it here: http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/?p=1254044
  12. This is custom-made solution that provide latest Windows Update Client version 7.6.7601.23453, which is part of July 2016 rollup update KB3172605 some of MDL members already seen it, and since August 2016 rollup didn't replace KB3172605, i thought it would be fine to promote the solution this WUClient version provides the long-awaited fix for the long scan issue in WU, which makes it a highly priority update that should be installed the official way of having this fix is by installing the July 2016 rollup KB3172605 (which require servicing stack update KB3020369 first) but some users may face issues with it (Intel Bluetooth, SSL cipher change.. etc), or simply don't want to install unwanted/unrelated fixes in order to get WU fix so, i ripped the WUClient components off KB3172605, those components are defined and deployed by sub-packages, i extracted/prepared/repacked those packages to be installed easily with DISM tool as individual .cab files this allow you to have the WU fix solely without other fixes in the rollup that you may not want or cause you problems, and without any prerequisites updates the solution also spare you from having to install monthly-changed win32k.sys update, or any other updates only one down-size of the solution, as a side effect you will get multiple enries for KB3172605 in "Installed Updates" panel (at least 2 for x86 / 3 for x64) and if you decided to install the whole KB3172605 rollup later, you will also get one more entry this is merely a cosmetic issue that don't decrease or affect the packages functionality you can install the packages yourself with dism, or recommended to use the scripts i made to automate the process Download: File: Windows6.1-KB3161647-x64.zip MD5: 1696dc0c8f38b4a0501130132bca6cc7 SHA1: 98f0300ad2d725c1025db482b4a88ac50a317f0d File: Windows6.1-KB3161647-x86.zip MD5: f8af8b2c1f25e2401b9735071062a576 SHA1: 98026dcd7e68bc23d91edee417870c9d9b178cf8
