However, Microsoft isn’t integrating the new package with the ISO file for Windows 7, which means that after the installation, you’ll still need to use Windows Update to download and install the Convenience Rollup update. If you’re a computer technician or a user that performs installations of Windows 7 in the regular basis, it can be a waste of time and bandwidth having to download the same update over and over. The good news is that because it’s an update, the Convenience Rollup can be injected to the Windows 7 SP1 installation media through a process called “SlipStream”. Basically, SlipStream is a process that allows you to modify the original installation media of Windows to include Service Packs and updates. In this guide, you’ll learn the steps to create a Windows 7 SP1 ISO containing the Convenience Rollup update.

Before you begin

Before diving into this guide, there are few things you’ll need, including a copy of Windows 7 with Service Pack 1, and the Automated Installation Kit (AIK) for Windows 7. You’ll need to download the Windows 7 April 2015 Service Stack update (KB3020369), which allows the installation of the Convenience Rollup update, and the Windows 7 SP1 Convenience Rollup (KB3125574) that matches the version of your operating system (x86 or x64). You can find the direct download links for these files here. Lastly, you’ll also need 7Zip to extract the content of an ISO file.

Finally, you’ll need to create a bootable media with the new Windows 7 files. You can easily do this by using the Windows USB/DVD Download Tool to create either a DVD or USB flash drive installation media.

Remember to change the source path C:\Users\admin\Downloads\Win7files with the path to the folder where you want to extract the files. Note the name of the version of the operating system, which can be “Windows 7 PROFFESIONAL”, “Windows 7 HOMEPREMIUM”, “Windows 7 ULTIMATE”, etc., as you’ll need this information later.

After installing the tool, browse the location of the new ISO file for Windows 7, select the media you want to create, and click Begin Copy. Now that you have created a Windows 7 ISO file with the Convenience Rollup, it will make it a lot faster and easier to install the operating system without the need to download hundreds of security updates and patches. After the installation, you’ll only need to install the latest cumulative update that will contain all the updates since April 2016, which is when the Convenience Rollup was originally released.
