    Hi Guys,

    After the problems with my RAM and how windows saw it, the installation decided to throw a wobbly and not work, the day before my report was due it. Luckly, I was saved by my ever trusty laptop!

    So, I've decided to install a better version of Windows 7, most likely ultimate. But there comes with it a catch.

    Is there anyway to automate the update process? I have better things to do than sit and stare at Windows being updated!

    Any help much appreicated.

    Unfortunately not, at least as far as I'm aware. Also, how will Ultimate be "better" for you? Do you need the changeable language packs?

    Anything has got to be better than the student basic version that was on it before. Might just go fro profesional instead.

    Well, looks like it's watch the tv and updates time......

    Cheers

    Ahh I assumed your were on Home Premium lol I'd go for Pro if anything, just so you're not limited to 16GB RAM.

    You should be able to get pro through a student discount scheme. Got mine for £30.

    AS for automating the process have a look here

    Mainly for making custom iso's that are smaller by removing windows features but has a tool that lets you create an iso containing a file that inputs answers to all the questions windows asks during start up effectively automating the process. Also has handy tool for install from usb work.
