So Microsoft finally released Sp1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. I am going to wait on installing SP1 on my home notebook, and my three Windows 7 x32 and x64 PCs for at least a week or two. Why?? I need to ensure SP1 will be stable before I install it on my PCs. If someone asked me to install it on their PCs, I would recommend they wait. And no matter what, ALWAYS make a full system backup.
Here are a few links which you may have already been to regarding SP1.
- Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (KB976932)
- WOW!! The x64 SP1 is almost 1GB!!
- Documentation for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (KB976932)
- Page 19 of the Deployment Guide explains some troubleshooting you may need to do if you run into problems.
I am still amazed about the size of SP1 for x64.
