Had a free weekend so decided to clear out and reinstall my little micro-server, haven't done it for over two years. 130 updates @ 1.4g and nearly 3hrs to get it updated! Thought I'm not doing that again if I need to reinstall! So I spent a few hours fiddling around trying to integrate the updates like I do with other versions of Windows. Cant seem to find the right way. WUDownloader doesn't have a list for them so I used PortUpdate to download them. They were all .cab so I set up a DISM list over night. All went fine until I noticed the finished .wim (4 indexes) was 11gb. Looked at /cleanup-image and /reset-base which error's out. Googling the error says its due to 'pending.xml' and needs a reboot (offline wim?!) With other Windows I usually do the WUDownloaders .msu's on a clean iso with MSMGs toolkit which works a treat but this is the first time Im doing it 'manually' using cab files. So, how do you guys do this?
