windows update new win7 machine

1 Dec

You can skip half of those, I just rebuilt our Windows 7 reference image on Monday, and after some digging I came across the recommendations in’s Patch Release Grid here on the Windows 7 update slowness sheet under Building a new PC. I loaded these three updates in this order offline, then Windows Update worked flawlessly.

  • KB3020369 – Servicing stack update
  • KB3125574 – Convenience update rollup
  • KB3172605 – July update rollup (includes a new WU client)
