So I have been meaning on going back to Windows 7 after being stuck with 10 on my computer due to the pure laziness of not wanting to deal with "fixes" for Windows Update.
I've already grabbed a clean W7 iso from MSDN and created an installation USB out of it using Rufus.
I'll be doing the first set of updates to the system via WSUS Offline Update but I have a question about it to anyone familiar with this update tool:
What does the [Use 'security only updates' instead of 'quality rollups'] mean? Should I put a check on its box or not?
Obviously I removed the check from [Include Service Packs] as the W7 iso already has SP1 included.
Also, how is everyone else dealing with their W7 update issues as of late?
>>What does the [Use 'security only updates' instead of 'quality rollups'] mean?
Security only updates only have WSUS Offline download Windows Updates that relate to security. Quality Rollups are Windows Updates that fix bugs or improve things. Check that damn box.
>>Also, how is everyone else dealing with their W7 update issues as of late?
At first, I was manually downloading and installing a few updates. Started by going to the Microsoft Update Catalog at http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/ and downloading the following:
- Latest cumulative update (Security and Quality Rollup for Windows 7)
- Latest .NET update (Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 3.5)
- Latest Malicious Software Removal Tool (always KB890830)
- Latest IE11 cumulative update (Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7)
Disconnect from the internet, then install each one of them. After rebooting, checking for updates took about 45 minutes.
Eventually I wised up and started integrating nearly all the Windows Updates into the Windows 7 installer.
- Use Rufus to burn your Windows 7 ISO to a USB drive
- Get the Windows Automated Installation Kit from Microsoft and install it
- Google some tutorials on updating the install.wim file on the USB drive
More in next post!
- My install.wim file is over 5GB in size (and I haven't updated the file since January). Get a USB drive that'll be big enough to handle it. You can't burn a DVD with this, unless you go with dual-layer discs.
- Use WSUS Offline Update to download the updates. To my knowledge you can only integrate updates that are in .cab or .msu format.
- You don't need to integrate ALL the updates it downloads. It downloads updates that have been replaced by newer updates. Consider letting a fresh install of Windows 7 sit overnight checking for updates, then integrating only what Windows Update shows. You can always add more updates to your installation later.
- The usual MSDN ISOs contains 4 versions of Windows on the same disc: Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, and Ultimate. When mounting the install.wim file, you have to specify what index you're mounting. Make sure you mount the right one (I listed them in order).
- Speaking of those 4 versions of Windows, delete the ei.cfg file from your USB stick. You'll unlock the ability to install any edition you want from the installer.
- Any update that deals with Remote Desktop, skip it (unless you want to figure out the proper order to integrate them).
- You can integrate IE11 to your installation. Google IE11.cab.
- There are a few updates (like 4 or so maybe?) that should not be integrated. You'll see these updates will show up in Windows Update even if you do integrate them. The Microsoft KB articles for the updates in question mention this.
- Don't integrate KB3177467. After you do, you won't be able to integrate further updates (stupid bug with how this update was built).
- The integration process takes a bit of time. On my 2006 rig with Q6700 CPU and SATA II SSD, it takes 1 hour to integrate 1 version of Windows 7.
I've done this with Vista as well. On a fresh install, both Vista and Windows 7 can now find the remaining Windows Updates in about 15 minutes. Enjoy!

Pretty sure there are some that are slower. It used to be written in perl, but not anymore. Maybe you should profile it. It sure isn't cpu bound.
What operations are slow for you?

You should be using Python 3 and installing libraries with pip instead.
Hell, even Node.js with npm would be a better choice.
You probably never heard of: the right tool for the right job.
Just cuz google made a engine to allow webdevs to do some back end coding doesn't mean you should use it as a primary programming language.
What are some /g/ approved GNU/Linux distros? All I hear is Ubuntu is shit, Solus is shit, almost all of them are shit, which makes me wonder, what does /g/ like at the end of the day all memes aside?
You have just finished installing your favorite linux distro. What do you install?
