Patches slipstreamed into WIM are not applying RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I injected a bunch of Windows OS patches into a really old Windows 7 WIM file but when I deploy the image via MDT to a machine the patches are not applying. I've slipstreamed over 190 updates into the WIM so I'd be expecting to see a few apply. SP1 is installed and when I run a get-packages via DISM it lists all the patches as installed.


    Is there a log file or way of troubleshooting why this is happening?

    Thanks!

  • If you are trying to build an updates reference image then I would do a build and capture: http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles-tutorials/windows-7/Deploying-Windows-7-Part10.html


    Logs are very important. If you are unsure how to post logs or where to find them then reference https://keithga.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/video-mdt-2013-log-files-basics-bdd-log-and-smsts-log/ Also if you have made customizations please mention them when asking for help.

  • I wish I could do a build and capture but have been asked to try and do this remotely and cannot get onsite to do a build and capture. 

    I've tried using the following command:

    DISM /image: <mount_directory> /Add-Package /Packagepath: <msu_file>

    It all displays that everything is okay but the patches don't apply when built.

  • Many times they will require being installed in a certain order.  I don't have any way to know what that particular order is.  Also some patches don't install unless they are installed via Windows Update.

  • I'd have thought out of 190 patches some would have applied...

  • %windir%\logs\Dism\Dism.log may have clues (from the workstation you are attempting to use dism to add the updates from)

  • At 190 patches it might be time to update that gold image.  Ty has how to validate it via logs, but with that many patches it's going to be difficult to try to force that many updates into a WIM.  When you run ZTIWindowsUpdate in a task sequence, it has returns for when something requires a restart or when something has a prerequisite. Any restarts or prerequisites in any of those 190 patches you have can cause what you're seeing to happen and it would be a lot less work to run a gold image capture versus try to decipher which patch is creating problems.  Hope this helps.
