Until an update breaks it all and forces you to wipe your drive while reinstalling
>>
>>66708545
Literally never happened.
Also why do you keep spamming that image of an intern who's scared of 10k lines of code? That's the type of dude /g/ makes fun of regularly for being unable to even fizzbuzz.

dude literally says he does not know anything and just copy paste code and hope it works and then says its HAAAARD, yea being stupid pretending to be smart is hard.

Well yeah, if its a SP1 iso its installing 7 years worth of updates.
I've done it recently and its closer to 4 hours and like 3 reboots tops.

That's why you download the convenience rollup for Windows 7 from Microsoft that was released in 2016.
>>
>>66708986
With or without the checking bug fix?
>>
>>66709064
It was the only iso I could find that was actually from their servers.

>>66709075
I don't know what you mean.

>>66704909
>installing "security" updates in 2017
>>
>>66704990
a) you can if you have a product key
b) if you don't use some iso downloading tool (literally pulls it from microsoft.com but bypasses some things)
>>
>>66704909
As Windows 7 SP1 is an almost 9 year old operating system, you need some core updates so that Windows Update can run fluently again. Reposting it here:
- current Windows Update agent (KB949104, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/949104/)
- KB3102810
- KB3020369
- Convenience Rollup Update (KB3125574)
- reboot
The three latter ones can be pulled from the Microsoft Update catalog: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/home.aspx

Enjoy Windows Update finding all remaining 200+ updates within five minutes instead of several hours.

>install up to date windows 7 (sp1 included)

done

pro tip: download the updates first using wsus offline
>>
>Install win7
>disable updates
>disable smb1&2
>aegis script
>use install gentoo wiki for performance and ricing guides
>use howtogeek guides for further registry hacks
Those guides should be added to the wiki desu, that shit is what makes win7 worthwhile in 2018

For years I've just kept an untouched W7 SP1 image + WSUS Offline (with all updates) on my thumbdrive. Saves me a lot of time.
Legit question here, though. Has slipstreaming updates into the w7 image ever caused issues for you, anons? Just curious since some people complain about it causing unspecified issues down the line. I might just try it for my next reinstall.
