However, you are free to install additional packages via the Debian package management system.

debian updating to lenny-45

When you are installing 150 updates on a Windows 7 machine, things can slow down to a crawl.

One great alternative is to use DISM and the /add-package parameter. Next, launch an administrative command prompt (WIN X, A for Windows 8 machines) and execute DISM to see the list of available options and the proper syntax.

With DISM and a simple batch file, we can loop through Windows Update packages and apply them to our . Let’s briefly cover DISM and prep our environment before jumping into the cooler stuff. If you have ADK installed, you can launch the Deployment and Imaging Tools Environment shortcut as an administrator. Getting help with DISM is made easier with command prompt examples. If you are using MDT, this file is located in your Deployment Share under Operating Systems\OS Name\sources\.

At your administrative command prompt, type the following: Adding updates with the above command is almost as tedious as watching 150 of them install.

To use this method, you will need to set up a fresh machine and let it fully update. This will launch a new window where you can watch as each update is installed.

Even though this part is automated, it will still take a while to complete (about an hour for my test VM).

- Make sure to change the root password as soon as possible.

- Run 'apt-get update' before installing any new packages.

Head back to your first command prompt and type: At this point, DISM will apply the changes that you’ve made, save your image, and unmount it. To speed up this process on other operating systems, save the following commands in a batch file: dism /mount-wim /wimfile:”D:\Deployment Share\Operating System\Windows 7 SP1\Sources\install.wim” /mountdir: C:\Mount /index:1 Start /w for /R \UPDATEDMACHINE\C$\Windows\Software Distribution\Download\ %f in (*.cab) do DISM /image: C:\Mount /add-package /packagepath:”%U” Dism /unmount-wim /mountdir: C:\Mount /commit Deploy your fully patched image to a test computer.
