Which updates to exclude from slipstreaming into Win7 x64 SP1
Posted 20 March 2013 - 11:29 AM
I'm using the latest Win7 x64 SP1 .ulz, and I remember reading somewhere that if I include all MSUs, then Windows installation will fail, which I've tested to be true.
So, which MSUs shouldn't be slipstreamed?

Edit - even better, just "integrate" them and THEN do the "lite-ing".

I don't know what you mean by "lite-ing".
Also, after extensive thread crawling, I think I may have found what I needed; http://www.msfn.org/...ost__p__1023063
Apparently, the updates to exclude are KB2603229, KB2533552 and KB2506143.

That post you linked to was NOT about RT7LITE. Reread that post and the one previous.
BTW, did you see this?
See post #3 then post#7 (a "better" software).
From Google cache
Basically, you're using a "defunct" and "failure-prone" "lite-ing" software. It's a dead project...
And... apparently you CAN directly integrate Updates (ignore post#10) .
...THEN "lite" it.
Somewhat Off-Topic - installed Win7SP1u last week (someone else' PC recovery) and "manually" installed the Updates, just because I didn't want to "Integrate".

Guess the alternative(s) is to put it/them in the "runonce"-style Unattended-method or "SysPrep" it as another post indicated.
Just to point out, you did NOT indicate that you weren't "altering" anything.
It's all good now. Glad you figured it out.
In case someone else needs this, per Member steven4554 (from your given link).
Applies to both RTM and SP1 so two "update paths" (GDR and QFE) so may get "confused" ( )
* You must install this update package on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system. You cannot install this update on an offline image.
* Microsoft .NET Framework 4 must be installed before you install Windows Management Framework 3.0.
Kind of explains it, doesn't it?

My first attempt was just to use the Windows offline downloader, take all post SP1 security and optional updates, then integrate them into a disk using Win 7 toolkit. This method failed miserably, as the OS would not install.
I ended up installing the OS with SP1, writing down what updates where required, then download them from Windows Update Catalog site. I integrated them and reinstalled, then found a few more updates which I downloaded and integrated.
I've wound up integrating approximately 109 security/optional updates into Win7 SP1 without that script popup for non-integratable/add-on updates, so it's as close to Microsoft official as possible. When I install the OS I only have a few things to download, which are things that do not cleanly integrate without the add-on script or that I don't want to integrate.
Anyways, point of this post is to tell you that I don't think there is a list of specific must have updates. There are some, but you'll probably have to install the OS and look what's available and download them separately to integrate. But now that I know about the three not to integrate, I may try redownloading non-SP available updates with WSUS offline, deleting those three, and trying to integrate what's left.
I just made a combination disc. I used WSUS Offline to grab post-SP1 updates, and I also used Windows Update Downloader to get security and non-security updates. Again using Win 7 toolkit, I imported the WSUS offline updates first, then imported the WUD updates (many of which I figured would be identical). For some reason I got a few dozen updates saying that they are upgrades for existing KB's, which I have never seen before on Win 7 toolkit do. I left it to integrate over night (205 updates!). I will try the disc tomorrow.
