I did test and it didn't work. I made a new one and it worked perfect. Suprised me!

I can't think why - but that doesn't mean that much.
Is SP1 more than a consolidation of updates/fixes?

I'll play safe and update my system repair disks & USB ISOs.

Well, it would work, but you'd be pre-SP1 again and have to reinstall. If your system is working properly (check to be sure, including the event log and reliability monitor) after a major upgrade like a service pack, you should indeed create a new recovery disc and archive the old one somewhere just in case.

People,

A system repair disc does NOT EQUAL a system recovery disc.

Before I changed this laptop to 64 bit, I used the pre-sp1 32 bit repair disc after installing the 32 bit sp1. As said since then I've installed the 64bit with sp1 on the laptop.

Not doubting it but how does that work?
Those who download the ISO from say neosmart will need to be carefull.


@Karlsnooks
I assume we are all talking System Repair Disk based around a Winre environment. This is stored away in your OS partition.
