Windows 7: Windows 7 Ultimate with NO SP-1?

Windows 7 Ultimate with NO SP-1?

s there anywhere to download the ISO for 7-Ultimate 64-bit that does NOT have SP-1 integrated into it?

I have been having strange color issues related to the shell, and an install without SP-1 is about the only thing I haven't tried.

Regards,
Chuck Billow

If you give us the make and model of your computer, it may have a restoration partition. If it does we can use it to restore your computer the way it was when you took it home. I assume it did not have and SP1.

Richard, make wouldn't matter, because I had removed the restore partition years back when I was having disk issues and had hardware and system changes from the "original." But, it's an HP-Pavilion GN553AAR-ABA m9040n.

And now, even if I take it to bare metal, when I re-install Win-7 Ult it has the same issue that in any program or window that is based on the explorer shell, the text for any selected menu item is black -- regardless of the background color, and regardless of what color I actually selected in "Personalization", within which the text and colors look fine.

** BUT: I then tried my daughter's Dell laptop AND my own HP laptop, and have them same issues. When restored to initial settings, all is fine. BU, if I then go and change the Selected Items colors to, say, white letters on a dark background, it makes the text black, even though it looks white when being set.

HP told me that their only responsibility is to get it to "factory presets" and if there are issues after that, to call Microsoft.

I have the number for MS...when I called the first time, I gave them the serial number for my Windows, and they told me it was out of warranty. I thought I might try again, using the serial number for the "default" HP install, but I would have to restore that to the Home Premium that it came with and go from there. Maybe I'll have time later this week for that...

I think that this is pre SP1, but you need your product key number.

Richard, I have my product key...but that link is for Vista. My desktop and laptop both are HP...and both came with Home Premium. I suspect that if I get restore CD's for the desk top it would [obviously] restore Home Premium, and then, if I upgraded, I would be back to the SP-1 issue.

This is probably a futile search, as the SP-1 upgrade is "required" past a point.

I just cannot believe that nobody else has experienced this issue. I have been using the same color set since back in the Windows 2000 days, and this is a new issue for me entirely.

I would just like to know what caused this. I suppose I should just get used to a workaround and move on...

Of the versions listed, the Ult is a dead link. I'm d/l the version switcher to see if that'll work.

Thanks.
