    I have never seen such a clear explanation of integrating a CU into an installation USB before. I be trying it out very soon. Thanks.

    Does your closing comment, "we've made this version specific to just one edition", relate to just having added the x86 version of the Cumulative update?
    Hi Denis,

    Thanks for that feedback.
    It's a while since I wrote that, but at step 7, I'm exporting only one edition from the original .ESD into a .WIM format.

    The original .ESD would have several editions (Windows 10 Home, Windows 10 Pro, etc. etc.) in the file, but I've picked only one of them to go into the .WIM file, using the /sourceindex parameter. Then I've mounted the .WIM file to add the Cumulative Update as I don't know a way to do that with the original (multi-edition) .ESD files.

    So from step 7 onwards I'm only working with a single Windows edition - Windows 10 Pro (x86) in my case.

    There may well be a way to apply CUs to a multi-edition USB but I don't know how to do it, I'm afraid.

    Also, in most cases it would have been easier to install Windows 10 and then let it update itself, but the problem with the specific issue mentioned in this thread is that it caused problems during the setup itself, and also disabled Wired and Wireless networking, so I needed the update to be applied before I started the Win10 installation.

    Edit: Actually you might be able to use one of the workarounds on this thread to download an ISO with a .WIM file containing multiple editions. This is different to the Media Creation Tool which uses a .ESD instead of a .WIM file.

    Then you might be able to apply the individual CUs to the various images in the .WIM file.

    I've not tried it though.

    DavidY,

    Thanks for the clarification. I have studied the link you gave as well.

    I think I had better stick with my current arrangements.
    - I disabled the problem LAN card [Broadcom 440x] some time ago because I only use WiFi these days so I do not have the same complication as you.
    - My main thought was that I could put together something that was neater & more convenient than having my multi-edition, multi-type installation disk together with the latest CUs as separate files on a small USB that lives on my keyring [I have a mixture of Home & Pro as well as x86 & x64].
    - If I have to run a Repair install I always have to follow that with re-running the latest CU. This seems untidy so I was interested in an alternative but I think I'll stick with it.

    All the best,
    Denis

    The other thing is that since I wrote that earlier post, version 1709 was released which works with the Broadcom 440 adaptor with no updates required. I just clean-installed 1709 without needing to go through all those steps.

    And I assume 1803 would work too, although I've not tested that one yet on the laptop concerned.

    while the KB4034674 CU for v1703 made the Broadcom 440x device work properly under the 1703 release, the fix has been included in the 1709 and 1803 releases .
    also confirmed that the KB4032188 update that preceded KB4034674 also made the Broadcom 440x Ethernet LAN adapter work correctly on my mom's old Dell inspiron laptop with Win10 x64 Pro v1703 as I tested it myself this past weekend; no more high CPU usage with KB4032188 or higher update installed on the Dell laptop. though MS will be ending support for the v1703 home & pro editions of Win10 in October 2018.

    well DavidY, some of the folks at MDL forums know how to slipstream/integrate CUs onto multi-edition installs. we just need to ask them how.

    Broadcom 440x device should work not only with 1709/1803 but also with future releases - gonna test out the 1809 release which is due out in early October
