    Since I'm installing Windows 7 again and again on family and friends computers I have come to love this fantastic tool: Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool.
    If the USB-stick is a fast one the installation runs like a bat out of hell and the computer is up and running in a blink of an eye...
    and then the tedious updates hit you like a ton of bricks.

    Since programmers have no way of being right the first time out, let’s face it, there’s just too darn many users out there who don’t think or act the way programmers thought they ought to do, there is updates upon updates until I scream like a little girl.

    Now, here's the idea I have... I'd like to have a folder on the USB-stick to put any and all updates I like in for the installation process to access and fetch them as it is installing. This way I just plug the bugger in and go to sleep, waking up to a crisp and updated computer, for the most part any way, ready to ship back to friend or family.

    Is this doable easy?
    I don’t have time to time and again slipstream the updates. I just want to dump them into a folder, much like the system Office 2007 uses.

    Well, that's what I was afraid of…
    If anybody disagrees and is helpful enough to explain how to do this I’d be ecstatic, or at least very grateful.

    Thankfully I use the SP1 MSDN version already.

    is possible, with use of the folder %OEM% and setupcomplete option.

    Create one sfx wiht one bath file to run silence updates.
