LoL
what a surprised that you'r hidden updates disappeared ? >>> NOT!!!! because sp1 includes those small hidden updates and all other updates.
Hm, i thought you knew it.
I don't think that's the answer.. because if the SP1 includes .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile and Windows Live Essentials 2011, then it would show up as an installed program under Programs and Features and it isn't that's the kind of "hidden updates" i was talking about.. not the hotfixes..

So, LoL'ing, doesn't solve my problems hehe..

Leakers seem to have gotten their hands on what may be the final Windows 7 Service Pack 1/Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 builds.
(I had heard rumors that Microsoft had put the finishing touches on SP1 in December, but don’t know for sure whether that is true.)
Microsoft officials are not saying whether the latest leaked version is the “real” SP1 release-to-manufacturing version. As usual, the advice to customers is to wait for the official Microsoft-provided SP1 before deploying to avoid potential malware and security risks.
Unlike previous first service packs of Windows — which were an absolute must-have for many business users before they’d even think about deploying the latest Windows variant — the coming SP1 feels a bit anti-climactic. (At least on the client side.)
Microsoft officials have said not to expect any new features in Windows 7 SP1. (There was a Microsoft blog post last year that acknowledged there would be some “feature enhancements” in SP1 around federation services, audio devices and printing.) They’ve also said to expect a couple of new virtualization updates in the server version of SP1, specifically RemoteFX and a dynamic-memory adjustor for Hyper-V.

Thanks all for your experiences regarding the newly leaked SP1. Apparently, I am no longer on the RC SP1 as the watermark is gone.

I had to first uninstall the RC1 Service Pack and my information prior indicated:

Microsoft confirms Windows 7 SP1 RTM, released to OEMs today-screenshot00402.jpg

Microsoft confirms Windows 7 SP1 RTM, released to OEMs today-screenshot00403.jpg

After the uninstall of the Service Pack RC1 I saw this, of course:

Microsoft confirms Windows 7 SP1 RTM, released to OEMs today-screenshot00404.jpg

Then, I installed the SP1 from the leaked sources:

Microsoft confirms Windows 7 SP1 RTM, released to OEMs today-screenshot00405.jpg

Microsoft confirms Windows 7 SP1 RTM, released to OEMs today-screenshot00406.jpg

Microsoft confirms Windows 7 SP1 RTM, released to OEMs today-screenshot00407.jpg

Microsoft confirms Windows 7 SP1 RTM, released to OEMs today-screenshot00408.jpg

Afterward:

Microsoft confirms Windows 7 SP1 RTM, released to OEMs today-screenshot00409.jpg

No more water mark. Compare the first screenshot with the last. If it's not the real deal, I guess I'll just uninstall it and install the real deal but, truly, this appears to be the real deal ...

I wish I could've have posted earlier but I had to watch my Packers beat the Falcons.

Everything is running like a champ here, boot time has remained the same. Then again with an ssd boot time is not really an issue anymore.

Show off ...

Yeah, no problems here, either, on a standard HDD.

EDIT: The start up times are almost painfully slow after the install. As much as I hate to say it, even though this appears to be the real deal, I hope it's not.

I'm thinking of rolling back and installing the RC SP 1 again.

Surely, this isn't what MS intended?

Other than that ... no issues ...

Sorry, didn't mean to showboat. Strange a standard HDD has such a difference, there is absolutely no change from before with sp1 on my laptop.

If you're not having any problems I would leave it, otherwise I have not noticed any real benefit to having it yet. No new features.
