I had to install win7 again yesterday and I'm still updating.

 

Is there a way to speed this up.

 

I seem to get update errors all of the time and then it undoes all of the updates instead of the few that actually failed.

 

As iot is, it takes over an hour to check for the updates the first time.  The hard drive sits idle doing nothing most of the time.  

 

Then I let it auto update by choosing shut down, and then it proceeds to install over 200 updates for well over an hour again.  

 

Then on reboot it says it failed and then uninstalls all of the updates!   I then have to wait again for check for updates as it has queued up updates for things based on last update being successful, and again wait another hour to check for updates.

 

Now I'm just installing updates a few at a time so it doesn't fail and remove updates again and this is taking forever.  I have almost a full day in this and I'm still not finished.

 

Is there a way around this or a simple method of installing updates?

there is

download WU downloader (think MDL has it, google it)

then when it scans what you need, you can choose what to download (as it dumps updates in 1 folder)

then run CMD from that folder, and type dir /B > _update.BAT

 

now hit F5 within that folder, on top you will have _update batch file with listed all downloaded updates inside

now right click on _update.bat and select Edit, now notepad will open

1st delete _update.bat from the list, then

 

do Edit -> Replace,

1st box type KB

2nd box type START /WAIT KB

press REPLACE ALL button

-------

now again Edit -> Replace,

1st box type .msu

2nd box type .msu /quiet /norestart

press REPLACE ALL

 

now do File -> Save, exit notepad

and run _update.bat file

If starting from a fresh install, I always will take updates in smaller batches, rather than trying to install everything it finds all at once.

When searching YouTube for videos on programs for installing updates I found a video on a program called Win Toolkit that is similar to NTlite, but has built-in windows update retriever and installer (slipstream).

Usually it takes them with no issues, just once in a while it chokes and refuses.   but yes, I had to install little batches and it still chokes sometimes that way.  but for the most part is successful.

thats why there is start /wait command :P

if win7 is anything smart it will overwrite old files with new ones

 

additionally user can use that KB that integrates into disk cleanup to remove unused garbage

At least in the past, the Windows 7-Windows Update has seemed to have a bug where it screws up if you select more than some at a time and not in chronological order.

they are in chronological order since KB's come with numbers, newer patch over old, gets either higher number or same with "-v2"

Are you sure? I am pretty sure that the client shows them in alphabetical order based on the update name.

ah my mistake, i switched words :P

but main point stays

 

if older update was KB73458

newer would be either higher number or KB73458-v2 (-v3... etc)

so its still sorted by "whats latest"
