Building a large AIO of AP?
Posted 27 April 2012 - 03:08 AM
Can I have AP do one, large, monolithic, all-in-one group patch (ie: all (english) versions of XP + all versions of Windows 7 + add-ons and extras, etc...) without causing AP to go nuts? Or is it recommended/required that I do a SEPARATE instance of each AP "patch" for each particual OS and its resulting architechture?
Current I'm doing the latter and albeit time-consuming and tedious, it does none-the-less work great; however, if I can just up and do a huge AIO, then mmmperfect!

Still it is recommended to keep the download separate for a few reasons.
1) Autopatcher.exe likes to MD5 EVERYTHING that it can in order verify that you have a legit download. This will slow things down immensely if you include the gigabytes of data from other OS updates. We are talking possibly 3-5 mins just to start up autopatcher. Incredibly longer if its on USB(1 or 2), or network, or god forbid a dvd. If its on a dvd and its full, you might as well go get something to eat.
2) If you want to make a cd/dvd or usb targeted at a certain OS keeping things separated make its just click and drag. If everything is together you will not be able to separate them without thorough examinations.

Occassionly after updating with all the releases the status on mine goes to unofficial but checking the release info they are true for being official.
I do however have a second machine with different OS installed and one its updated and showing official, copy contents to flash drive then compare the two to find the discrepency,usually an obselete apm or rampant folder that didn't delete.
@ViroMan...have a third backup as a dvd and running an AIO,you have enough time for at least two meals, kept incase i neew to wipe a sytem and rebuild from anew.
Enough said..... Enter or Do at your risk!!

From HDD 1 minutes 35 seconds (AP April 2012)
DVD 6 minutes 45 seconds (AP March 2012 backup)
As yet to do a timing from flash drive but will post the result sometime soon
