1) Download KB3083710 and KB3102810 in advance.

2) Disconnect the computer from the Internet so Windows Update cannot automatically update itself to 7.6.7600.320.

3) Perform a fresh reload from Recovery Media or Windows 7/64 with SP1 RTM.

4) Manually install KB3083710 and restart – WU components will now be version 7.6.7601.19016 dated 9/25/2015.

5) Manually install KB3102810 and restart – WU components will now be version 7.6.7601.19046 dated 10/20/2015.

6) Restore the Internet connection and launch Windows Update as normal.

7) After a few minutes, you should have plenty of updates to download and install.
