    This is the thread in which W10UI_x.x is published, thus the testing and resulting logs are published here too.

    Maybe there should be a separate thread for W10UI_x.x experimentation and publication and this one should be for Hotfix releases. I think of this thread as just a place to see postings for the latest Hotfixes. Plus, it seems like a lot of work to constantly be creating new Windows 10 media builds. So are we just supposed to create a new media build every time there's a new SSU/LCU and do an in-place upgrade with the upgraded media (which is even more work)? For me, I only access new cabs/msus here that I can't get on standard Windows Update (WU). The rest of them, I can get from WU. Sometimes, I just download them from UUP. I guess I can't wrap my head around creating so many ISO builds.

    Nobody should create a new uptodate iso only to do an inplace/repair upgrade to get the new updates installed.

    Nobody forces anybody to create a new uptodate ISO, people do it for their own reasons.

    Try WU on a clean 2015 or 2016 LTSB install, using the first and only released ISOs.

    From the posts with test results people can learn a lot about how to integrate updates (online/offline) in the best possible way (even for those who don't use W10UI at all).

    You're right, but we are forced to wade through all the postings, which sometimes seem extraneous.
    'Not interested in old LTSx versions, not even for educational reasons. This isn't a kiosk.
    Maybe you could change this to the Hotfix Educational thread, since it is used for that. :)

    I'll probably go to the OP first, but keep-in-mind that others post valuable msu/cab links and advice in the running thread.
    I don't see this thread as being about overviews or a few people. :)

    This thread is for all related to Updates discussion.

    What other msu/cab links, other than microcode updates?

    And all separate posts will always go into oblivion unless @Tito will index them at the OP.

    I said, "You're right, but we are forced to wade through all the postings, which sometimes seem extraneous."
    By extraneous, I was referring to all the "logs" and "script tests" that make this thread feel like it's not even a Hotfix thread.

    Then You said, "Go to OP of this thread, there are the links to the Updates Overviews published."
    As if I could do this to avoid extraneous content.

    Then I said, "I'll probably go to the OP first, but keep-in-mind that others post valuable msu/cab links and advice in the running thread." (Such as FXP links).
    I can't avoid what I perceive as content that is extraneous to this thread because I'm looking at everybody's posts to get to valuable information other than logs and script outputs. So the suggestion to "Go to OP of this thread.." is moot.

    Hey, it's your thread. If you want it to be
    Enthousiasts ISO-of-the-Week club, then OK.
    OR
    Enthousiasts Hotfix Education thread, then OK.

    That's your choice. :)

    Why did i already expect the personalisation :thinking;

    All posts are about updates, updates, updates and updates....and MDL's own W10UI updating tool (hosted in this thread).

    I didn't set this up, it was this way when i became active.

    FxP links are present in the 20H1/2 / 21H1 Updates Overview.

    ps
    I was first running in the beta channel to fetch them manually and upload them to a filehost to be able to publish them here, then i asked @awuctl first (didn't want to update UUP dump for them to be available), i nagged @abbodi1406 to find a way to find them and @luzea, when he took over UUP dump, to make it available on UUP dump, now they are easy to find on UUP dump and published here in one overview, containing all updates to create a 100% updated ISO or online install.

    Updates are sometimes revealed in the running thread postings first, and then they appear in the overviews, regardless of the type of update or source. So I have to look at all the thread content including all the logs, script tests, etc. that will shortly be obsolete when the next SSU/LCU is released which will trigger more logs, script tests, etc.

    So you say it's "...about updates, updates, updates and updates." But sometimes it seems like it's really about:
    "Logs, script test output, videos, logs, script test output, videos, etc."

    Lather rinse repeat!:)

    Personally, I'm integrating updates only if they fix important issues, like security vulnerabilities, the chkdsk problem or the inplace-upgrade issue. Otherwise, I'm usually going with basic.

    I agree with your update style. It seems practical to me. :)

    Defending for what? You don't have to satisfy everyone. This thread is not only about applying updates to online images (OS) but also about applying updates to offline images.

    I also integrate the updates into the ISO, and have the SSU less to integrate is still have that to gain :)
    But doing a lot of testing, I reinstall every 2 months or so

    I build images for a lot of people so I do test builds all the time just to make sure everything works without any surprises, like the when LCU has the SSU integrated. I like to mess around with it so when I need to work with it, nothing strange pops up.

    Hardware also also changed a lot. A really fast PC with a fast internet connection makes building an up to date image a relatively quick process and since most of the process is automated, you don't even need to do much actual work.

    Hi Abbodi1406 and Enthousiast

    I have also this problem. When i extract DU for ISO distribution to sources folder and when i try to install windows it says "no bootable media found" (or something else like this , i can not remember the exact phrase now)

    Can you please explain the solution here for setup.exe conflict between boot.wim and DU for ISO distribution ?
    Thank you

    1- If you update boot.wim, extract sources\setup.exe from index 2, into iso\sources

    2- extract DU to temporary folder, and delete setup.exe before copying other files to iso\sources

    uuuhhhh I have been dealing with this for an hour on a new system I have never touched before, was 100% sure I had a missing boot driver.

    I'm going to retry this without updating DU.

    UPDATE:

    Excluding the DU update fixes this issue.
