Slipstream Microsoft Windows Updates into WIM Image Using Windows AIK


It sucks when you deploy Windows to your machines and then you have to update them with Windows 300+ updates. The sad thing about this is that Microsoft doesn’t offer an ISO image with all these updates integrated, but Microsoft does provide us the tools to create your own ISO image. The video below will show you how to integrate the updates into an ISO image.

Here are the commands done in the video:

Dism /Get-WIMInfo /WimFile:C:\Win7SP1ISO\sources\install.wim
mkdir C:\Win7SP1ISO\offline
Dism /Mount-WIM /WimFile:C:\Win7SP1ISO\sources\install.wim /Name:"Windows 7 PROFESSIONAL" /MountDir:C:\Win7SP1ISO\offline

Dism /Image:C:\Win7SP1ISO\offline /Add-Package /PackagePath:C:\updates\Windows6.1-KB3020369-x64.msu
Dism /Image:C:\Win7SP1ISO\offline /Add-Package /PackagePath:C:\updates\windows6.1-kb3125574-v4-x64_2dafb1d203c8964239af3048b5dd4b1264cd93b9.msu

If you need to get/download update for yourself you can head over to the Microsoft Update Catalog website. Keep in mind, that the site will only work with the latest Internet Explorer.

Unfortunately, this website requires ActiveX, which means it only works in Internet Explorer. That means no Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or even Microsoft Edge on a Windows PC.

After opening the site in Internet Explorer, click the yellow information bar and select “Install This Add-on For All Users on This Computer.” You’ll have to agree to a User Account Control pop-up after installing the ActiveX control.

At the Microsoft Update Catalog website you’ll see several update packages available for download. Just locate the updates you need for your Operating System – add them to the basket and download them. Within the video I only downloaded KB3020369 and KB3125574 because those two updates are for  Windows 7 SP1 Convenience Rollup.

  1. Thank you for all of your videos!!!

    If /PackagePath points to a folder that contains a .cab or .msu files at its root, any subfolders will also be recursively checked for .cab and .msu files.


    I checked that – works


  2. Right now I am trying to reinstall Windows 10 ADK because it seems like DISM is corrupt in some way. Else I am affraid we need to restore a back-up.The actuall error tells me I have typed add-package rather than Add-Package which isn’t true.

  3. Hello, after a couple of updates I encountered an error which told me I needed to remount the image. I did instandly try to delete all de (still mounted) files which didn’t work because Trusted installer is owner. I tried to make me owner which worked but i coulnt still delete the files. Then i realized i should perhaps first unmount the image which worked and then i deleted all the files. Now i created a new folder with the copied windows files from the windows iso. now i try to add the updates with add-package which isn’t working anymore. What should I do now? I have been googling the error i receive: 87 but it isn’t working anything i find on the internet. Dism keeps telling me add-package isn’t a know command. Please help me out.

    • That’s a new one for me. Which update caused the issue? Have you tried unmounting again with another temp location? try to re-install the ADK files into your server – it seems like your DISM is acting up if it’s telling add-package command is unknown.
