The 4GB was my mistake relating to the SP, that was the language packs that I was wanting as well, couldn't edit my post the time had run out.

The Service Pack network / Full version is 1.9GB, and contains both X86 & x64.

And its an ISO. Just big enough till my usage runs out on Friday then resets lol. Looks like the separate downloads are 903 for x64 and 537 for x86

For those that want to slipstream SP1 into their install DVD:
click here (http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-slipstream-windows-7-sp1-into-installation-dvd-iso/)
RT7lite is a Win7 replacement for vLite/nlite, though not quite as polished.

Those with TechNet access can download the images with SP1 already integrated. Those who like a challenge can use reverse integration (http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/window-on-windows/use-reverse-integration-to-slipstream-windows-vista-sp1-and-sp2/1249).

Does that mean Windows update requires less than the 1.9GB?

PS. Under Windows Update, SP is not listed there. Just various updates. Also under Computer - Properties, it just says Windows 7. No SP was mentioned.

Yes as I said 61.2mb for me.
In the windows update window under No Important Updates Available click on the optional updates available.

Getting it through Windows Update doesn't download anywhere near as much.

For starters, the network-redist one includes 32-bit and 64-bit. It's for Win7 & Server 2008. There's a *lot* that your machine won't need in there, so it just won't download it :)

For home users, getting it through Windows Update is the way to go. For corporates / more than 3 PC's, they're who need the network-redistributable files.

I still cannot see it.
I haven't used WU for a while due to data caps, perhaps when I do some of them the SP would pop up ....

.
I have 2 desktops and 1 laptop running x64 and a desktop running x32. Where do get this network-redist which includes both 32bit and 64-bit? Just searched MS download site but couldn't find it. Any links?

In the panel on the left, click on check for updates. This is probably a stupid question, but you are using Window 7 ?

There are 7 items available to be downloaded. Is the 1st DVD iso item included all of them or have to download them individually? A little confusing.

Speedy Gonzales
23-02-2011, 10:00 AM
The DVD / ISO includes Windows 7 SP1, x86 ia64, and x64. The symbols one I dont think you need. The 903mb and 537-8 mb are the separate installs for x86 and x64 (both are on the ISO - the 1.9 GB file). It tells you on the bottom

Thanks, speedy, didn't scroll down for more information.

I have the full ISO here now and installed same.

If there are any PF1 Members near Tokoroa that want same then PM me.

Or round Mt Eden. Ive downloaded the ISO as well. Even tho I'm not using Win7. But, if you want it. you'll have to come here to get it. And bring a blank DVD

Same here - it sounds like the size via WU depends on how up-to-date your OS was.

Well downloaded the two stand alones on was around 500Mb the other .8Gb. Yet my netbook which I did through WU it came in at 44Mb. Windows updates don't count on our cap so it doesn't matter

Win 7 SP1 (KB976932) came through Win Updates today for me.
61.2MB took 16 mins to install. No probs since - all working OK.
My nephew got it from another source and then had to uninstall it
because it messed his browser and a few other things up.
I can't see it listed at MS Downloads site so just get it through
your normal updates.

Trev
24-02-2011, 09:56 AM
I don't know how Windows Update works, but some people are able to get it before others. It was there for me 7-30 yesterday morning when I looked.

Took about 30 minutes for download and installation, Windows Update. 88.7 mb.

Installed from the DVD iso download and it took almost 45 min to complete the installation. My system still in one piece after the installation.:D

Don't notice anything new, though. I was a little nervous during the installation - not sure my PC could startup properly!

How many minutes it took for you guys?

BTW, do I have to perform a clean up or something like that?

Speedy Gonzales
24-02-2011, 11:36 AM
Theres nothing new. Besides, Remotefx or something and dynamic memory. Most of it (you've probably already installed)

Not unless you are running out of space on the C drive

I got mine from windows update yesterday. 83mb. But I had to restart my computer twice because the first time it restarted it somehow corrupted the service pack, but the second time it configured correctly

KB71033 is not built into SP1

Maybe you should not pirate your Windows software then you woudn't need to worry about it...?

RemoteFX & Dynamic Memory are in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

SP1 isn't designed to change lots of things, its getting back to what service packs should be :)

SP1 documentation is at
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=61924cea-83fe-46e9-96d8-027ae59ddc11&displaylang=en

SP1 includes hotfixes and security updates plus a handful of new features mentioned below:

Additional support for communication with third-party federation services
Improved HDMI audio device performance
Corrected behavior when printing mixed-orientation XPS documents
Change to behavior of “Restore previous folders at logon” functionality
Enhanced support for additional identities in RRAS and IPsec
Support for Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX)
Improved Support for Advanced Format (512e) Storage Devices

Same here. No change after SP1

Yep, same again. It's super handy having all the updates rolled up though, the number of updates was getting a bit ridiculous. :p

No Speed increase, but I did recover approx 2GB of space after running the Cleanup tool.

Mind you that was after installing the full SP1, not through windows updates, so if its done Via Updates, there may be no option to recover space since the Update is only installing whats not already there.

Anyone know anything about how WSUS works with this kind of thing? So far Service Pack 1 hasn't showed up on my WSUS server. Do they stagger the release of Service Packs and WSUS will get it later?

nedkelly
26-02-2011, 03:14 PM
Depends if the server is pointing at an upstream server or direct at Microsoft update.
And I think it has to also be approved on your server to go to clients.

Yes, it points at Microsoft Update, and yes, I have it set to approve all updates by default. SP1 just hasn't showed up in the list in the WSUS console yet.

The blazing fast masterton internet started pulling the 64x 900mb .exe over at around 56kb/s

Then I decided that I should probably wiat till monday. despite not actually being charged for internet use, after the accredited SINA "balance" runs out we have to go down to the IT department and have it "topped up"

Its just an inconveniance especially if you find out that it runs out 4:15 in friday!!!

Not looking forward to spending an appealing wet sunday afternoon with no internet (censored to hell as it is since my mates VPN borked). Being sick is no fun

I did my netbook through WU it was easier than copying to flash drive etc, I ran the cleanup tool after and recovered about the same space you did so it does work
