Windows 7 SP 1 rollout(16 posts)
One download for three possibly more computers saves bandwidth. Also I like to have copies on hand when I reload computers If the disk does not contain SP1. Also good for slipstreaming a disk. Besides, how else can I maintain my superiority of being "the first on my block...".
Method 1: Confirm that Windows 7 SP1 is not already installed and that you are not running a prerelease version of Windows 7 SP1
To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties.
Check the Windows edition section:
If Service Pack 1 is listed, Windows 7 SP1 is already installed on your computer.
If a version number (for example, v.153 or v.720) is listed after Service Pack 1, a prerelease version of Windows 7 SP1 is still installed on your computer. You have to uninstall it before Windows Update will offer you the release version of SP1. .
If you read the fine print it states
Starting tomorrow, Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) will begin rolling out automatically on Windows Update. Updating customers to Windows 7 SP1 is part of our ongoing effort to ensure continued support and improved security updates "for customers who have not yet installed SP1".
If you have SP1 installed you don't need to reinstall or attempt to reinstall.
