  1. Oh yeah, I found your collection on MyDigitalLife way back. I actually use it a lot (and also the Office one). For the most part, information on the updates should be on the Internet Archive, if you search with the URL: support.microsoft.com/kb/xxxx But yes, I should probably get around to doing that one of these days
  2. @win32 mind sending me that 460.89 mod you did to bypass the version checks? I can test it on Windows 8.1 today and see if it works
  3. The first driver version to support the RTX 3060 TI was the 457.51 (I keep an archive of all the drivers for this card). I tested this version as soon as I acquired the card on 8.0, and it Code 43'd on me right away.
  4. Yeah, I also got a RTX 3060 TI and have the same Code 43 on both Windows 8.0 and 8.1. Guess they really don't want new users on Windows 8.x
  5. There, the Mega link is updated. Enjoy Since this update repository is now a bit more generic and not necessarily NT 5.x oriented, I'm not sure if the topic should be moved. I'll leave it up to the moderators to decide it. Also, I don't know how to put a link in spoiler tags, but I think they would be appropriate for the repo link. If anyone wants to tell me how to do it, I'd appreciate it.
  6. To everyone: sorry for not updating this thread when I said I would. I'll be going through my external HDD and uploading all of the updates I have onto Mega. This includes the Windows ME updates provided by @RoboSkirt (seriously, much appreciated!) and some (not all) Windows 95 and 98 updates in Portuguese. I manage to scavenge a lot of them through archive.org and a heap of other collections. These include: Internet Explorer 4.01 SP2 Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2 Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 Windows Media Player 6.4 Windows Media Player 7.1 Windows Media Player
  7. I can't download NewMoon 26.5 for vanilla W2000. Are the links broken?
  8. Forgot about this thread. I rearranged some items in my Mega account, and those links got expired. I'll update them as soon as I can.
  9. Is that the System Update Readiness Tool? I think you only need that if you have trouble installing updates. If your system was freshly installed, there's no need. I usually go: Platform Update + Suplement > Internet Explorer 9 > Net Framework 3.5, 4.6 and updates > Powershell 2.0 + BITS 4.0 > Media Player 11 > General > Security > Hotfixes The idea is to install as many updated components as possible before moving on to the General, Security, etc updates. That way, the updates will cover a wider range of software. I'd say so, yeah. The main one would be
  10. I have a R9 380, precisely the point where AMD drivers stopped working. Had to used a hacked together Embedded version of the drivers. Not ideal. Never heard of SDI. I'll have to check it out. EDIT: Yeah, your GPU still had officially compatible drivers with Vista, that's why SDI (Snappy Driver Installer?) found a matching pair.
  11. Any chance you'd also take a look at AMD drivers? They stopped working in mid-2015 when they changed driver branches (introduced with the RX 300 series: https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/amd-catalyst-15-15-download.html).
  12. So far I have it on Mega and my external HDD. Don't know if I can put in on Archive.org If you want to include subfolders just add the /s switch to forfiles.
  13. A small update on the repository. Thanks to the efforts of @Regele there are now EN-US version of IE9 and KB937286. I've also change the folders names in the Ultimate Extras to English.
  14. Will this custom kernel allow the installation of newer Windows 7 drivers on Vista?
  15. For the most part, these telemetry updates have all been included in the newest Monthly Rollup, so if you want to avoid it you should use @abbodi1406's script hosted on Askwoody: https://www.askwoody.com/forums/topic/2000012-neutralize-telemetry-sustain-win-7-8-1-monthly-rollup-model/
  16. You can use the /l flag to create a log. It would go something like this: start /w pkgmgr /ip /m:C:\Update\update.cab /s:C:\Sandbox /l:C:\log.txt
  17. Unfortunately, as far as I know, pkgmgr does not show any visual progress on update installation, unlike its successor, Dism. When an update is not applicable or has been superseded, pkgmgr simply doesn't install it, so you shouldn't have to worry too much about that. As long as you install updates in the correct order (from oldest to newest, installing first the Platform Update alongside IE9), you should be gold. I guess you could just install the Windows 7 AIK and adapt the script to use Dism, as it will act as a wrapper for pkgmgr, but I'm not sure it displays any more information.
  18. It does not. MS never bothered to port DiagTrack to NT 6.0.
  19. SHA2 updates disable Windows Update, since they bump the build number to 6003 Yes, you open command prompt with admin rights, then run the commands. I recommend you put the updates in a path with no spaces, like "C:\Updates", just so it's easier to run the commands.
  20. Yes, I mention it in the thread. Not entirely, but it is recommended that you install previous updates first. Some of the newer ones might not install without pre-requisites.
  21. Yeah, I posted it in a thread somewhere and it got lost to time (I can't find it either!). I still have those drivers archived: https://mega.nz/file/wgxAFCzJ#N8_D1L59p8isZ2Gz4nmgBPxkdXlFqS52uxbctbvumDQ They're AMD Embedded drivers based on an early 15.100 branch, still compatible with Vista. To use your R9 300 GPU (or any other, since it has few cards listed) with them you need to edit the INF and add your HWID (I think I added my GPU's HWID in that archive, the R9 380, so you could use that as the baseline for changes specific to your card).
  22. I have a pertinent question... Why create a thread, when this topic is already being discussed: https://msfn.org/board/topic/181739-windows-update-error-code-80072efd/ https://msfn.org/board/topic/178377-on-decommissioning-of-update-servers-for-2000-xp-and-vista-as-of-july-2019/ Furthermore, you're linking to the Server 2008 update repository that I created without any kind of credit. Honestly, this thread seems pointless...
  23. The main advantage of creating a folder for each update is that all the extracted files that pkgmgr extracts will be contained in them. It's easier to maintain and then delete. Plus, I had a few errors (not sure why) when trying to install without specifying a temporary directory, so I like to do it just in case.
  24. The updates that say pt-pt or ptg are in Portuguese. All others are language neutral. In fact, the Ultimate Extras are language neutral (forgot to change the folder names). I'd estimate only an extremely small amount of them are specific to my language. Just install the "cab" files through pkgmgr. Works just like you installed them through Windows Update. If you give that Ultimate Extras folder to your friend, he should know how to integrate them into the ISO. I did go multiple times through this list at the time I compiled it, but I'll try to see what daniel_k has.
