  • cscript C:\windows\system32\scregedit.wsf /ar 0
    • Registry has been updated.

Install Hyper-V

  • start /w ocsetup Microsoft-Hyper-V
  • shutdown /r

If you did not join a domain, using GPOs for update settings and need to manually setup windows update the following commands are for you (This will use the default time of 3am to check for patches)

  • Cscript c:\windows\system32\scregedit.wsf /au 4
  • Net stop wuauserv
  • Net start wuauserv

Update right now

  • Wuauclt /detectnow

Check the update status

  • Cscript scregedit.wsf /AU /v

From here on in you can use the RSAT tools on a client to do the rest
