Updating Windows 7 SP1 with the Convenience Rollup and having Windows and Microsoft Update actually still work after

I am not sure how many of you have tried adding the Convenience Rollup (KB3125574) to a Windows 7 SP1 image from a stock SP1 ISO, but I’ve just had the experience of trying to take an SP1 WIM without any updates to fully patched, including the rollup, as part of a deployment.

I am not amused.

While there may be multiple ways to achieve this, I tried a few approaches and ended up settling on this particular approach which was repeatable (paths below are the ones I used – obviously substitute for your own).

1. Mount the WIM:
dism /mount-wim /wimfile:D:\temp\source\sources\install.wim /index:1 /MountDir:D:\temp\mount

2. Inject the April 2015 servicing stack update (KB3020369):
dism /image:D:\temp\mount /add-package /packagepath:”D:\Temp\Updates\WIM_Integrate\Updates\AMD64-all-windows6.1-kb3020369-x64_5393066469758e619f21731fc31ff2d109595445.msu”

3. Dismount and commit the WIM:
dism /unmount-wim /mountdir:D:\temp\mount /commit

4. Re-mount the WIM:
dism /mount-wim /wimfile:D:\temp\source\sources\install.wim /index:1 /MountDir:D:\temp\mount
