Windows 7: Prep for clean W7 Install - question about Microsoft Software Recovery

Prep for clean W7 Install - question about Microsoft Software Recovery

Hi guys

You have helped me a lot over the years (especially Greg) and I will be following his gloriously detailed Clean Install Guide tomorrow or the day after.

I have a full retail version of W7 Home Premium, but due to its age it does not come with the Service Pack 1 on the disk.

Looking at the guide (and bearing in mind i have the full retail version) I have been able to go to Microsoft Software Recovery, put in my activation code and i have downloaded a 3.09 Gb .iso from MS

My question is simple: does this .iso contain Service Pack 1

My wife bought her retail version later and her disc contains SP1 - so i could just use that and then my activation code but im intending to do the install from USB stick if i can.

Many thanks for any help

Matt

Looks like you've got SP1.

My x17-58997.iso reads as follows:

3.09 GB (3,320,903,680 bytes)

Just copied this out of my windows explorer folder properties for the .iso:

3.09 GB (3,320,903,680 bytes)

So it appears my iso is identical to yours (to be expected i guess) does that size indicate it is W7 + SP1? Im happy to take your word for it but the size means nothing to me!

Many thanks

Well, my Win 7 Home Premium with SP1 is the same size to the byte as yours; I'd take that as good enough proof.

I have no non-SP1 version to compare, but I'd certainly assume it would be less than 3.09 GB.
