1) Set up a base release, one that does not have ANY updates installed with it. You could download just the autopatcher basic program.
2) Use APUP to Update the base release. Then somehow create a file that exports the downloaded files to an ISO you can burn to CD and update with later in time. Set up a LIVE version of Autopatcher on the CD that requires no installation.
This would possibly solve the issue with the Microsoft support team and keep this great project running. I hope someone else sees this as a great idea as well.

EDIT- Okay, forget the first part. I started playing around with APUP and realized thats exactly what it does...my bad. But the second part of the second part would still be nice, a live CD, unless Autopatcher already does that as well...i'm amazed at what it can do so far.
