The Last Windows 7 ISO You’ll Ever Need: How to Slipstream the Convenience Rollup

Microsoft has finally released a “Convenience Rollup” for Windows 7 that combines updates from the past few years into one package (like a service pack). Microsoft doesn’t offer ISO images with these updates integrated, but you can create your own in a few simple steps.

That way, whenever you install a fresh copy of Windows 7 in the future, you won’t have to wait for it to download several years worth of updates (and reboot multiple times). It’ll have everything it needs up through May 2016.
What You’ll Need

This process requires a Windows 7 disc or ISO file with Service Pack 1 integrated. These are very easy to get at this point. You can download Windows 7 ISO images straight from Microsoft’s website, and these disc images already have Service Pack 1 integrated. Simple!

You’ll also need to download the Servicing Stack Update and Convenience Rollup packages before continuing. You’ll need the packages that match the version of the ISO you’re using. For example, if you’re going to create a 64-bit installer disc, you’ll need the 64-bit update packages.

Finally, you’ll need to download and install the Windows AIK for Windows 7. Microsoft makes this available for download as an ISO file. You’ll have to either burn it to a DVD and install it from the DVD, or install a tool like WinCDEmu to mount the Windows AIK ISO image and install software from it without burning it to disc first.
Step One: Extract the Files From the Disc or ISO

You’ll first need to extract the contents of the ISO image–or copy the files off a disc. If you have an ISO file, you can open it with a program like 7-Zip to extract the contents. If you have a disc, you can select all the files on the disc, copy them, and paste them in a folder on your computer.

In the screenshot below, we’ve copied all the files from a Windows 7 SP1 disc to a new folder in C:\Win7SP1ISO on our computer. We’ll use that folder in our examples below. We also created a folder called C:\updates where we put the Servicing Stack update and the Convenience Rollup package.

Step Two: Use Dism to Integrate the Updates

Next, launch a Command Prompt window as Administrator. Open the Start menu, type “Command Prompt” to search for it, right-click the “Command Prompt” shortcut that appears, and select “Run as Administrator.”

Run the following command, using the path to the folder you placed the files in (in our case, C:\Win7SP1ISO ):

Dism /Get-WIMInfo /WimFile:C:\Win7SP1ISO\sources\install.wim

This will tell you the name of the Windows 7 edition in the image, which is something you’ll need later. In the screenshot below, you can see we’re using Windows 7 ENTERPRISE install media. You may be using a Windows 7 Home, Professional, or Ultimate edition instead.

You’ll now need to mount the image offline. First, create a directory to unpack it to:

mkdir C:\Win7SP1ISO\offline

Now, unpack the files so the DISM command can work with them:

Dism /Mount-WIM /WimFile:C:\Win7SP1ISO\sources\install.wim /Name:"Windows 7 ENTERPRISE" /MountDir:C:\Win7SP1ISO\offline

Again, replace C:\Win7SP1ISO with the folder you extracted the files to, and Windows 7 ENTERPRISE with the edition of Windows you got from the previous command.

You’ll now need to add the downloaded Servicing Stack Update–the KB3020369 update–to the Windows 7 installation files.

To integrate a 64-bit package:

Dism /Image:C:\Win7SP1ISO\offline /Add-Package /PackagePath:C:\updates\Windows6.1-KB3020369-x64.msu

To integrate a 32-bit package:

Dism /Image:C:\Win7SP1ISO\offline /Add-Package /PackagePath:C:\updates\Windows6.1-KB3020369-x86.msu

You only need to use one of the above commands–it depends on whether you’re creating 64-bit or 32-bit installation media. Replace the package path with the folder where you saved the Servicing Stack Update (in our case, C:\updates ).

Next, add the downloaded convenience rollup update package–that’s KB3125574. This part may take a while.

To integrate a 64-bit package:

Dism /Image:C:\Win7SP1ISO\offline /Add-Package /PackagePath:C:\updates\windows6.1-kb3125574-v4-x64_2dafb1d203c8964239af3048b5dd4b1264cd93b9.msu

To integrate a 32-bit package

Dism /Image:C:\Win7SP1ISO\offline /Add-Package /PackagePath:C:\updates\windows6.1-kb3125574-v4-x86_ba1ff5537312561795cc04db0b02fbb0a74b2cbd.msu

Just like the last step, replace the folders with your own, and only run one of the above commands. Use the appropriate one for the installation media you’re creating–32-bit or 64-bit.

Lastly, commit the changes and unmount the image:

Dism /Unmount-WIM /MountDir:C:\Win7SP1ISO\offline /Commit

Step Three: Create an Updated ISO File

The install.wim file in the directory you were working with now has the Convenience Rollup package integrated. We’ll use the oscdimg tool included with the Windows AIK to make a new ISO image with your modified install.wim file integrated.

First, launch the Deployment Tools Command Prompt as Administrator. Head to Start > All Programs > Microsoft Windows AIK. Right-click the “Deployment Tools Command Prompt” shortcut and select “Run as Administrator.”

Run the following command at the prompt, replacing C:\Win7SP1ISO with the path to the directory you used earlier. You can also replace C:\Windows7Updated.iso with whatever location you want the resulting disc image to be created at.

oscdimg -n -m -bC:\Win7SP1ISO\boot\etfsboot.com C:\Win7SP1ISO\ C:\Windows7Updated.iso

You now have an updated Windows 7 ISO file. You can burn it to a disc using the tools integrated into Windows, or create a bootable USB drive from it with Microsoft’s Windows USB/DVD Download Tool. Be sure to save this ISO in a safe place, so you can use it again later if you ever need to reinstall!

Now that Microsoft offers Windows 7 ISO images for download, it would be nice if Microsoft itself updated these images with the latest patches occasionally. However, Microsoft has never done this for anything but a service pack (or a “build” of Windows 10), so we’re not holding our breaths.

How to Update Windows 7 All at Once

How to Update Windows 7 All at Once with Microsoft’s Convenience Rollup

When you install Windows 7 on a new system, you traditionally have to go through a long process of downloading years of updates and constantly rebooting. Not anymore: Microsoft now offers a “Windows 7 SP1 Convenience Rollup” that essentially functions as Windows 7 Service Pack 2. With a single download, you can install the hundreds of updates at once. But there’s a catch.

This update package, which combines updates dating all the way back to February 2011, isn’t being made available in Windows Update. If you’re installing a Windows 7 system from scratch, you’ll need to go out of your way to download and install it. If you don’t, Windows Update will download and install the updates one by one–the slower, more tedious way.

Here’s how to download and install the Convenience Rollup so you don’t have to do it the hard way.
Step One: Install Service Pack 1, If You Don’t Have It Already

The Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Convenience Rollup requires you already have Service Pack 1 installed. If you’re installing Windows 7 from scratch, you can get this in one of two days:

Install From an Disc or ISO That Contains Service Pack 1: Microsoft offers Windows 7 ISO images for download. These ISO images have Service Pack 1 integrated, so you’ll already have Service Pack 1 after installing from them.
Download and Install SP1 Separately: If you installed from an older Windows 7 disc without SP1 integrated, you’ll need to install Service Pack 1 afterwards. Launch Windows Update, check for updates, and install the “Service Pack for Microsoft Windows (KB976932)” update to install it. You can also download Service Pack 1 directly from Microsoft and install it without going through Windows Update.

If you’re not sure whether you have Windows 7 Service Pack 1 installed, open the Start menu, type “winver” into the search box, and press Enter. If it says “Service Pack 1” in the window, you have Service Pack 1. If it doesn’t, you need to install Service Pack 1.

Step Two: Find Out Whether You’re Using a 32-bit or 64-bit Version of Windows 7

If you’re not sure whether you’re using a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows 7, you’ll need to quickly find out.

Click the “Start” button, right-click “Computer” in the Start menu, and select “Properties.” You’ll see this information displayed to the right of “System type” under the System header.

Step Three: Download and Install the April 2015 “Servicing Stack” Update

You can’t simply install the Convenience Rollup after installing Service Pack 1. You have to first install the April 2015 Servicing Stack Update first. Don’t ask us why; ask Microsoft.

Head to the April 2016 Servicing Stack Update download page and scroll down to the download links. Click the appropriate link to download the update for either an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit version) of Windows 7.

Click the “Download” link on the next page to download the file, and then double-click the downloaded update file to install it.

Step Four: Download and Install the Windows 7 SP1 Convenience Rollup

Update: You can quickly download the Convenience Rollup using the below direct download links. Microsoft could change them at any time, so send us a note if these links appear dead. If the direct download links work, you can skip downloading the update from the Microsoft Update Catalog website. Just download the appropriate update and run it to install it.

Download the 64-bit version.
Download the 32-bit version.

If the direct download links don’t work or you just want to download the update in the official way, you’ll have to download the Windows 7 SP1 Convenience Rollup from Microsoft’s Update Catalog website.

Unfortunately, this website requires ActiveX, which means it only works in Internet Explorer–you can’t use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or even Microsoft Edge on a Windows 10 PC.

After opening the site in Internet Explorer, click the yellow information bar and select “Install This Add-on For All Users on This Computer.” You’ll have to agree to a User Account Control pop-up after installing the ActiveX control.

You’ll see several update packages available for download:

Update for Windows 7 (KB3125574): Download this if you’re using a 32-bit version of Windows 7.
Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB3125574): Download this if you’re using a 64-bit version of Windows Server 2008 R2.
Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3125574): Download this if you’re using a 64-bit version of Windows 7.

To download the correct update for your system, click the “Add” button to the right of it on the page.

If you want to download more than one update–for example, if you’ll be updating both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 systems and want offline copies of the patch–you can click the “Add” button for more than one update to download them at once.

After you do, click the “View Basket” link at the top right corner of the page.

Click the “Download” button here to download the update–or updates–you’ve selected.

You’ll need to select a download location for the update. For example, you could select your Downloads folder or Desktop.

Click the “Browse” button, select a folder, and then click “Continue.”

The update will begin downloading, so wait until it does. Depending on the update you selected, the download is between 300MB and 500MB in total.

When it’s downloaded, you can open the folder you downloaded the update to and double-click it to run it and update your Windows 7 system.

You can also copy this update file to a USB drive or network location and run it on additional Windows 7 PCs, quickly updating them as long as they already have Service Pack 1 installed.

This update package only installs all the updates released after Service Pack 1 and before May 16, 2016. Future updates won’t be added to it. If you’re downloading this package after that date, you’ll need to install the Convenience Rollup, then launch Windows Update to install any updates released after this package.

Going forward, Microsoft will offer a single large update once a month with bug and stability fixes. It will also offer smaller updates for security problems, as usual. This should result in less updates to install after you’ve installed the large Convenience Rollup package.
