Does the SP have anything that might interest the average every day user to install? If not, I'll prolly wait for the final release.

Hello PeaB4YouGo,

Most lilkely not right now since it's still a beta, but you can read about it and the differences from the SP1 at the link below for more details to see if it may be worth installing for you during it's testing phase.

Download details: Documentation for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 Beta (KB976932)

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello Bagavan,

The Windows 7 SP1 is currently not a final release yet, and is only a beta version right now. After you installed the beta SP1 is makes your Windows 7 an evaluation copy since you are now testing Windows 7 with beta SP1. This will be like this until you either uninstall the beta SP1, or when the final SP1 version is released, uninstall the beta SP1 and install the final release SP1.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Have you tried rebooting your computer once or twice after you completely uninstalled it?

I ended up seeing the watermark even though the SP1 beta kept failing to go on. I don't have any worries about uninstalling it despite following the instructions on the MS page linked in the Failed - reverting now screen.

The previous versions always saw the IT Developers version separate from the general release of the beta or final versions. Not for 7 however which comes as no surprize since this wasn't intended for home users this early. Information about Service Pack 1 Beta for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2

The guide here however will be definitely useful for those that did see it go on just the same.

Nice tutorial
One concern with Option Three.
Even if you allow the full 15 percent of drive to System Restore, isn't there a possibility that restore point will be written over by new ones before you need it ?

Figure in Restore and Previous Versions.

Hello DrivenOne,

Yes, over time older restore points will be deleted to make room for new ones as needed. Eventually, you would no longer have any restore points left before the SP1 was installed. OPTION THREE is usually only good if you had installed the Windows 7 SP1 beta recently and didn't want to use the other options.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
