If I uninstall this, will I lose the updates that came with it? I just reformatted my PC and installed this right away

I'm about to download and install, but I'm gonna make a backup of my HDD first. It will be interesting to see if there are actually any changes.

Someone had posted a blog report a few months back on what the SP1 was supposed to see while not being a lot to start with. It enables a few things as far as the finished SP would be concerned while this is still the unfinished version further along then the previous early beta release mainly for IT and software developers.

The latest updates came out after this RC release was made available to prep the system along with the need for the WUSignUpTool.exe you toss on first before running the SP Installer. The Readiness tool is the other thing to run first as well since that will download whatever else is needed ahead of time for preparing things.

On systems the particular av program or other protections may need to be removed if you are unable to prevent them from seeing any processes loaded up along with Windows that can hamper the SP install. I had to remove the free version of ThreatFire used to clear tracking cookies and data miners before one process could be halted to allow the SP on.

Works fine for me, also had the beta. Also have not seen any problems reported,yet.
Go for it. But back a backup or image first.

Hello Petey,

I added a PDF file to the first post for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 Release Candidate Notable Changes. So far, I haven't noticed anything that sticks out though.

There wasn't supposed to be anything major for this one even from the first information seen. Once you have it on I wouldn't be expecting much either way.

The one thing I noticed here was how fast it went on when looking back on the SPs for the previous versions as far as not being as large. I'll be taking some notes but so far any minor changes are being made behind the scenes and practically unnoticable.

only 23mb through the update site over others running about 96mb is small in comparison.
