    can we updade windows 7 pro to windows 7 pro sp1 offine instead of windows update as my widows update is showing an error has occured.
    and usually it takes a lot of time to update from WU ,
    so can we do it offline?

    If someone would be kind enough to give me a few additional basic direction, I sure would be appreciative.
    I have a technician PC running Win 7 Ult, MBR x-64; I have a target PC setup as UEFI/GPT, Secure Boot Disabled, boot order: 1) USB, 2) ATAPI DVD, & 3) HDD; a 3 TB HDD with 4 partitions: 1) 500 MB FAT32, 2) 200 MB ntsf, 3) 200 GB ntsf, 4) 100 GB ext 4. The partitions are empty and the balance of the HDD is un-allocated. Moreover, I have: a USB HDD disk-caddy, a number of USB sticks of various sizes and classes, an original Win 7 Ult DVD with No SP 1; a recent Win 7 SP1 ISO download from Microsoft, and I have downloaded the "Windows Loader Tool" ISO and the "Integrate7" script to my technician PC's desktop.
    Now, the question in my old brain, is: What do I migrate where and in what order.

    i am not sure if i understood what you're trying to do.
    From what i understood, you want to clone your HDD with win7 Ultimate which was installed on MBR disk on another HDD which is installed on new pc.
    If it's what you're trying to do, it's not recommanded to do that on different pcs as they don't have the same drivers so by doing that you will probably face compatibility driver issues later.

    Never tried cloning from mbr to efi/gpt, let me say you're playing with eggs but you can use macrium or acronis to do the job. Let us know the results by giving feedback :)
