Is there a good way to save all of the windows 7 updates so that I don't have to use bandwidth every time I setup a system?

I am considering using windowsupdatesdownloader.com but I have no idea if that's a safe or good way to go.

 

How do you guys tackle this?

A few years ago you could create a customized installation disk, using RT Se7en Lite,.. unfortunately, RT Se7en Lite's website no longer exists. 

 

You can try slipstreaming the Windows 7 "Convenience Rollup" instead. If the Windows links still work,.. the Convenience Rollup will have all updates up through May 2016. https://www.howtogee...enience-rollup/

There are a few fully updated w7 installs on p2p sites and to keep them legal just use your own install key. I use them on customer pc's with w7 quite often without problem.

WSUS Offline updater is pretty good.  It's a bit clunky as a first time user but once you get used to it it works well and can save time if you do updates often enough.  All the program does is provide a GUI to download the updates direct from Microsoft then apply them in the order windows update does.  It requires several reboots just like downloading the updates via the built in windows update application.

Basic directions, download, extract, run the update generator in the main folder as admin, pick what you want it to get updates for and download.  The under the client folder on the machine you want to update run the update installer and follow directions. You can even make ISOs of the updates if you want.

 

Adding the updates to the ISO is something you can do as mentioned, but that's harder to setup for the first time.  As for downloading a pre updated ISO from the darker corners of the web...I would consider it for one of my PCs but wouldn't on a customers for fear of potential questionable software put in by those creating them.
