List of Standalone Updates for Post Windows 7 Service Pack 1

Donations

£1.00

This is a list of recommended updates to install immediately after a clean installation of Windows 7 using the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (Media Refresh 2011) .iso. I advise installing these even before the system drivers. The chances are your system will have no internet connectivity, so you should download these, alongside the system drivers onto a USB Flash Drive using another computer.


Preinstallation Drivers

Note in order to perform a Clean Installation of Windows 7 on up to 6th Generation Hardware, some drivers needed to be added to the installation media post-installation such as USB 3.0 drivers and storage controller drivers so Windows 7 can at least recognise the USB ports and SSD/HDD during installation:

OEM Cert Collection

If you are using a system with an OEM License (including OEM Downgrade Rights from Windows 8.x Pro and Windows 10 Pro) on a computer manufacturered by a major OEM such as Dell, HP, Lenovo, ASUS, Acer, Compaq, Gateway, Packard, Fujitsu, IBM, MSI, Samsung, Sony or Toshiba you are best to install Windows 7 without a Product Key and activate post installation using OEM System Locked Preinstallation – the same BIOS based Product Activation mechanism of factory settings. Doing so will save you from having to call Microsoft to activate by phone.

I have put together the OEM Cert Collection along with an associated 2 line script to install the Cert and Apply the associated OEM SLP Key. After Installation copy the OEM folder containing the cert and OEM SLP key to your C:\ Drive and then run the script file.
