    Slipstreaming still necessary?


    Hello folks,

    I am on the way of a new era of using SSD. My evo 860 just arrived. I do not want to go through the installation of 100s of updates so was considering slipstreaming updates in the installation media.

    Going through older threads here makes me feel that ISO downloaded using Heidoc is usually the latest. I downloaded Win 10 Home on 6th Oct 2018 (probably 1809). My questions are
    - Latest ISO download is always the latest with all updates? So no slipstreaming required?
    - How do I figure out which version I downloaded (i.e. is it really 1809)?
    - If slipstreaming is still required, I have updates downloaded using WSUS. How do I slipstream the installation media with updates downloaded using WSUS over the period of time?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Hi, first, 1809 is presently withdrawn after bugs found.

    Second, if you install a new build, you could expect just one large cumulative update subsequently (there could be the odd minor one as well). This is not Win 7.

    So no, iso's are not fully up to date once updates have been released.

    For clarity, for 1803 for example, there are many cumulative updates, and you only need the latest.

    Also after a while, the cumulative updates hardly grow as it is the same segments being updated.

    So basically slip streaming is a thing of the past. The days of zillions of updates has long gone. You no longer get the situation where you install updates and need updates to the updates etc.

    You can always download the cumulative update and apply it manually but the time saving is minimal usually.

    MS get a lot of flack but cumulative updates are far more efficient - credit to them.

    I would like to ask if there is anything similar to nLite for Windows 10, so you can customize the installation and also incude some drivers. Thanks

    Basic questions about NTLite (moderators: should I start a new thread here?) I've looked at NTLite on and off several times but never did anything more:


    • I have three main systems in my home LAN, and I would want to create separate install images for each one of them. Can I do that with one license?
    • Let's say I go through all the pain of creating these images for Release 1809 for System P. Can I save all these customizations into a script which I can then modify and create a separate customization script for System S? For System L?
    • Once I have my scripts for systems P, S, and L, can I reapply them for Release 1903 (or whatever M$ decides to call it? Or do I need to start all over again to customize Release 1903?


    If the answers are all yes, then I'm totally going to get this utility.
