An all-language version has been posted here:
:arrow: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=8190&p=27164#p27164

WARNING: It is missing some WHS rollups and won't update WHS fully (except for the English version). The base OS will be fully updated.
If someone is able to provide access to a WHS version without any PowerPack, feel free to contact me via PM (due to high workload up to October/November of this year, it might take a long time for me to work on this).

Aker, I will keep my eyes open for a Microsoft copy of WHSv1 with no power packs installed. They are pretty common, but most of what is out there seems to have pp1. I couldn't find anything on the language paks.

Thanks for being willing carve time out of what sounds like a crazy busy schedule, especially that you're a mod, not an admin.

Changing subject to WHS11, I'll post a reminder for you towards the end of the year on this as you suggested.

You mentioned three updates (presuming UR4 combines all four of the update rollups). There seems to be a fourth, 2/27/13 KB2781278 ... fi-based-c
[Update for Windows Home Server 2011- UEFI Hotfix for WHS11 Backup Support with disks using GPT formatting].

Problem is, last December I checked a fully updated whs11 system for the URL using WUMT & didn't see it listed. Let me look again.

I have posted the other three Microsoft .cab file URL's for the updates you mentioned below:

UR4 (KB2757011)
KB2885314 (404 error File not found during Remote Web Access)
KB2934950 (Client backup fails with KB2781278 UEFI Hotfix or kb2960358 Net framework vulnerability patch) ... ... ...

Note that UR4 also appears to have a client side update (KB2757014).

On WHSv1, I found what may be another update released November 25, 2008.


Description found here: ... /kb/957825.

The prerequisite states it is connector sensitive and restarts are not required. But real world comments appear to confirm it is connector sensitive but problems occur unless there is a restart. ... -with-whs/

Adding to the confusion is on the ex49x/x510 HP WHSv1 disk dated 9/09 with PP2 (KB956587), KB963032, & KB972421 pre-installed, this update does not show up as needed when using WUMT. However based on the update description, the functionality it addresses appears somewhat critical. Yet if you look at what is addressed in PP3, the KB957825 functionality doesn't appear to be included...

I'm also not seeing it on a fully updated WSUSol system either...

Any ideas??

I‘ll take a look at it.

WUMT nor Windows Update did show it, while testing here (but I used a PP3 ISO). Maybe it‘s superseded by PP3.
I‘ll have to get the file to check that. Do you have an URL I can download it from? Else I‘ll search it the next days.

You said, you found some PP1 images; which language do they have?
Then I could get the URL for PP2 (still missing for all languages except English) and add the file to the glb-image.

Tested inside VirtualBox 5.2.20 and working fine here.

It‘s a modified version of wsusou 6.7+ (r672/r673) with additional support for updating Windows Desktop Search and installing the Windows Home Server rollups.
It also contains optional updates (as listed by Windows Update MiniTool) and the past-EOS WannaCry-fixes for Windows Server 2003 x86.

Any interest in creating something similar for 64 bit WHS2011?

Maybe. I‘m still unsure.
I‘ve got a kind of list of updates for Windows 7 (up to 2019-07), which are fully slipstreamable. Maybe I‘ll upgrade this to a update list next January.

I would have to do so for 9 Windows 7 editions, 4 Windows Server 2008 R2 editions and 3 „special srv2008r2 editions“ (WHS, MultiPoint, ...); all in all 16 editions (if I didn‘t miss one). Most likely I will create one, but it will be less a version of wsusou and more a list of all updates.
