    I started to working on some offline collection and DISM integration script that can run on Windows 7 host so we can create fully updated image. And we can also use NTLite to remove updates backup as from v2.1.0.7862 is silently added support for Clean Update backup on Vista too. I tested in now only on Windows Vista Ultimate x64. So all editions needs to be integrated and tested before we can get perfectly updated Vista image.

    What I want to achieve.

    1) Integrate all updates
    2) Integrate MRT + Defender definitions
    3) Integrate .NET 4.8 with port fix from MSDN, VisualC++ and DirectX addons too
    4) Auto-Sysprep to get all updates in installed status
    5) Integrate USB and MassStorage drivers
    6) Pack into ESD and install it from Windows 7 PE with Windows 10 setup engine, On Vista PE we can run Windows 8.0 setup engine, but into this PE cannot be integrated updates so there will be lack of HW support even with USB3.x driver

    All these steps I have prepared on my Windows 7 project, so only small adaptions are needed.

    Those are actually Windows Server 2008 updates.
    (Go to the Microsoft Update Catalog site and type in those KB numbers)

    The only way that you can update Windows Vista SP2 after its April 2017 "end of life" date is to install Windows Server 2008 updates.

    Holy s**t this actually worked, in VirtualBox at least. Thanks OP!

    Haven't tried installing Vista on my M6500 yet though.

    EDIT: I had a partially updated Vista on my M4300 and it fully updated now thanks to this tutorial, thanks again OP.

    I saw it about 30 minutes ago at the Microsoft Update Catalog site.
