If you mean on the created DVD or ISO, then that may have been the other languages included in the SP1 version you have instead for the size difference.

Hello Danny,

No problem if they are, but I'm pretty sure that they will not be. If so, you can always use the tutorial below to remove the SP1 backup files after the Windows 7 SP1 installation.

Windows 7 SP1 Disk Cleanup Tool

For everyone:
Thank you everyone. Please let us know how it went for you.
Hi Shaun

The tut works great and the install went fine i just have 920mb of backup files showing in disk cleanup again that dont seem to even be there.This is the second disk ive tried now and the iso was copied from an origional disk.Just dont understand it.Can only presume its the copy of sp1 i downloaded.I will wait now until its released and try again.

Danny,

Strange, does using Disk Cleanup remove it?

If the 'regular' cleanup doesn't, have a go at this one.

Remember this method is not supported by Microsoft. If something were ever to go wrong, before during or after Microsoft will not provide support. This includes post-SP1 updates or any other problems you might have due to SP1. Just throwing that out there.

Nope. Slipstreaming is never supported unfortunately, but this method does work great though.

I just did some testing with the slipstream I created with the SP1 RTM from TechNet, and I get the same Service Pack Backup Files listed in Disk Cleanup. Disk Cleanup and Extended Disk Cleanup did not remove it. The SP1 Disk Cleanup Tool will not run for a slipstreamed Windows 7 SP1. Doesn't look that there is a way to remove it yet.

It's not going to hurt anything, and the slipstreamed Windows 7 SP1 will run the same as a retail Windows 7 SP1. It would be nice to have the space (530 MB for me) on the HDD back.

Thanks for posting this Shaun
Its been driving me nuts.Glad to know its not an error on my part. Im interested to know if you are able to find the files manually. I havent even been able to find any. So could this be an error with disk cleanup detecting falsely.

Will it work with a Student upgrade disc?

Sounds like a stupid question but, will it work with a Student upgrade disc?
Can I use it to upgrade from Vista to sp1?
