There are no updates to internal builds of operating systems. They come as they come. Windows 7 Build 6519 is no different - your not seeing any updates because there aren't any.

Why would you update those kind of OS's (Alpha/Beta/RC).
They are meant to be run as they come, and if Microsoft desides to update it, they would put the new code in the next build.

AND

They are NOT meant to be runned as an Main Operating System.

Some, "Less Experienced" people assume that because an early build of windows is fairly similiar to its predecessor, it can be updated as such.
This is impossible.

I don't know if it works, but you can try to set only your BIOS back, and put windows at the normal time.

Your BIOS date, and the date within your OS are (usually) synchronised.
Changing one changes the other, and changing either will set off the timebomb.
This build should by no means be used as a main OS.

i don't want to use it as a main OS, but windows update is the only way for some drivers, such as my video driver, to be installed. i put the time ahead cause i wouldn't be able to install updates, or so i think, so my drivers can be installed. i used my vista cd and only some, like 2 i think, of those drivers worked with windows 7. if i put time ahead while in windows, installed updates, then put the BIOS clock back, would it still screw up my windows 7 install?

Yes. Just find the drivers online, and run their installers under compatibility mode if necessary. Shouldn't need Windows Update to install drivers.

i just answered my own question pretty much, i just tried it. if you want to use windows update in Windows 7, put your clock ahead to the correct date and time, install updates, and put your clock back before restarting/shutting down your system. this is crucial i would assume so your windows install doesn't become unusable.

I have noticed that Microsoft are even offering drivers for devices like video cards, sound cards, monitors etc for Windows 7 via the Windows Update catalog.
