Windows 7: Performance, stability fixes arrive for Windows 7, Server 2008 R2

31 Aug 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
Performance, stability fixes arrive for Windows 7, Server 2008 R2


In addition to releasing the most security bulletins ever on this month's Patch Tuesday, Microsoft has released a number of non-security updates, the majority of which are for the latest versions of its client and server operating systems. All the patches are available on Windows Update and the Microsoft Download Center and most will require a restart. With the exception of the last patch, they're all for Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Most of these updates will be rolled into Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Testers got the first Windows 7 SP1 beta build two months ago, but just today Microsoft sent out build 7601.17077 to selected PC and Technology Adoption Program partners, according to ZDNet.

The first patch (KB2028560) is vaguely described as one that delivers "new functionality and performance improvements for the graphics platform."

The second patch (KB2249857) describes an issue that occurs on 2TB+ hard disk drives. If the OS is configured to save dump files to a volume of such an HDD, some of the dump file is offset at a disk offset greater than the 2TB address, and Windows is either put into hibernation or crashes, volumes on the HDD may be corrupted, and data is lost. If the corrupted volumes include the system partition, the computer will no longer boot.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

I decided to go ahead and install KB2028560 and KB982110, as they are the only two that seem to apply to me. The installer for KB982110 was already installed. It make me wonder if it is an old update or packaged with something else.
