In MDT 2010, there were some improvements to the ZTIWindowsUpdate.wsf script, the reason as to cut down time, they did and at the same time ZTI was not as reliable as it used to be.

Alexey (with help from Keith) did create a script in mars 2010 that resets the counter. You can find the blog post here http://blogs.msdn.com/b/alex_semi/archive/2010/03/17/ztiwindowsupdate-wsf-does-not-install-all-patches.aspx.

How to use it?
- Download http://1drv.ms/1CqmjBN, Unzip and store the script in the Scripts folder of the MDT share
- Modify the task Sequence:
- Add a “Run Command Line” with the following command
- cscript.exe "%SCRIPTROOT%\ZTIWindowsUpdateReset.wsf"
It should look something like this:
Is this still valid for MDT 2013 Update 1?
No, this is fixed in MDT 2013 Update 1
