    I personally use this little software: Windows Updates Downloader (WUD) Update Files (ULs)

    Every month the update list gets updated so get the latest updates. You can download all the offline MSU updates. Once you have them, simply mount your wim image, insert updates with command prompt and voilą !

    if you need the command to add updates to your WIM image let me know.

    EDIT cmd commands:

    Run cmd as administrator on your mdt server!

    Add Updates:




    Add Updates:




    dism /Mount-Wim /WimFile:\UpdateImage\wcsc.wim /Index:1 /MountDir:\UpdateImage\Mount




    dism /Image:\UpdateImage\Mount /Add-Package /PackagePath:"D:\UpdateImage\updates\Security Updates"




    dism /Image:\UpdateImage\Mount /Add-Package /PackagePath:"D:\UpdateImage\updates\Non-Security Updates"




    dism /Image:\UpdateImage\Mount /Add-Package /PackagePath:"D:\UpdateImage\updates\.NET Framework 3.5.1 Updates"





    Closing VIm and saving changes:




    dism /Commit-Wim /MountDir:\UpdateImage\Mount




    Unmount Image:




    dism /Unmount-Wim /Commit /MountDir:\UpdateImage\Mount




    Adding as a new image on MDT server service:




    wdsutil /Add-Image /ImageType:Install /ImageGroup:Win7 /ImageFile:\UpdateImage\wcsc.wim/SingleImage:”Windows 7 Pro X86” /Name:"Windows 7 April 2013" /Description:"Updated Windows 7 April 2013"




    Or replace the existing image modify text if needed:




    wdsutil /Replace-Image /Image:”Windows 7 Enterprise” /ImageType:Install /ImageGroup:Win7 /ReplacementImage /ImageFile:\Win7Enterprise.wim

    Hi Steewy,

    That looks like a solution that i might try to get working. I've just enabled the windows update bit in MDT and its gone from 20-30 mins to hour and a half sometimes.

    I see youve put the updates on the boot image in WDS, i take it thats the LiteTouchPE_x86.wim MDT creates.

    If MDT updates the boot image do you then have to re-apply the updates to the new LiteTouchPE_x86.wim?

    Thanks

    litetouch _xXX.wim is just the boot file updating it with anything other than drivers is pointless. If you want to deploy pre updated windows the easiest way is deploy to a test pc/vm. install updates and any software you want on base install (so i do office for example) then create a capture task in mdt. Run that on the test pc IN WINDOWS then add the new wim its created into mdt and then create a task to deploy that

    Never update your litetouche.wim image. This is only the boot image !
    The boot image mainly contains drivers and parameters of the bootstrap.ini.

    Go to your deployment share. Operating system, your OS. In that folder you will have the wim image you captured. This is the image that you need to update.

    Good luck

    Thanks sted.

    That is one solution but is a step backwards for us as this is where we came from. Having to install and create images from machines.

    What about adding the drivers to the file
    MDT\Operating Systems\windows7os\sources\install.wim

    This os is taken straight of the disk and isn't a captured image

    you only do it once and all pcs use the image. Drivers add them to mdt drivers ection and let it sort them itself. You can in theory apply updates to an offline image but its just imo easier to fire up a vm and pull a copy

    I never added drivers that way as it's the original CD.
    I always add my drivers manually to your operating system WIm image that you captured.

    I understand you need to install that image on you entire network so you should install W7 on one machine.
    -Install all the updates
    -Do not enter any serial or activate windows
    -Install the apps you need (I prefer to install them after deploying the windows so you have a lit Image)
    -Capture the image Adrian Costea's blog » Sysprep and Capture a Windows Image with MDT 2012

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/m.../hh825626.aspx

    Just having to unapprove 2000 updates that computers dont need as its currently got 20gb of updates in so would take about a year to install a machine.

    It works the same way. I add my updates to the main WIM image.

    By personal experience I'll recommend you to capture a new image with all the updates.

    It's so nice to build a machine in less than one hour and you don't have to install any updates.

    Looks like you can't apply updates the the install.wim file.

    Tried using DISM to inject updates from the wsuscontent folder and windows update still reports there are no updates installed when you check and wants to install over 100.

    Edit. Changed drivers to updates.

    thats because drivers are inf files and updates are msu/msi/exe.

    its just easier to deploy to a vm. install updates and capture a new image

    Ok,

    Let's sort this out.

    To have my main image up to date I use a VM on VMWARE.
    Before capturing the image using the MDT server I take a snapshot of my VM and put a the current date as a refrence.

    When there is too many updates I just use my virtual machine, restore the snapshot, install all the new updates and also the updates of the software that are on my image (even if I tend to install them after deploy by GPO), and I capture the image again. Once I have my new image I just replace it in MDT and deploy the new one.

    I find it quicker and also you are sure that you have all the updates in your image, no need to use the command prompt.
