    I'm trying to build an updated ISO based on the MSDN isos with all editions and x64 and x86 versions.
    I'm doing this because there are still many machines that only have the Vista COA and paying for a windows 10 licence or activating any other windows edition is not an option. It needs to be 100% legitimate to pass the software inspections. I know, vista is old, unsecure, obsolete, but here in Portugal, computers from that era are common and I have to provide solutions.

    So, I was searching for something like UpdatePack from simplix, but there are none. WSUS offline (legacy) works somehow, but I have no idea how to apply it to an offline wim image. So I thought that I could install vista on a virtual machine, install all the updates and capture the WIM, but that would take way too much time for all the SKUs and x64/x86 variants. Also, if I install all the 200 updates, the system runs out of memory, just like windows 7 (memory leak?), so I have to reboot every 50 or 100 updates and wait an hour for it to display the remaining updates.

    Does any one have an update list or batch file like there are for the newer windows editions? Or any other suggestions?
    Please, no KMS or "use linux" talk! Thank you
