Windows 7: Microsoft confirms Windows 7 SP1 RTM, released to OEMs today

It appears to be an installer but it starts "preparing your computer" and then fails with error 0x800f0a12.

That would be the SP1, if his download looks anything like mine.

Are you sure. It takes forever for the file to open.
Mine opens as soon as I click on it, don't know what the issue is with it taking forever to open for you. Might be because mine's corrupt in some way.
That was on my netbook...slow processor, slow everything plus I was installing from a thumb drive. I decided to install the x86 SP on that first just to see how it went and it's about two thirds the way through installing now.

Hmmn. I'm wondering if it is because I have my Windows custom themed. Anyone any thoughts on this?

Hmm, but all the x64 .exe installs you download without the .iso are 903Mb, not 633ish.

I must have a dodgy download then. I can't burn mine to disk.

Go to Local Disk and delete the 'eb414bfc11dc62687cc096bd' folder, then try again
Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker and reinstall the SP1
