Well I think I'm gonna give up and wait for it to come down the pipe on WU.
After much struggle I managed to create an ISO disk of Sp1.
I hadn't really thought much beyond that.
What I hadn't thought about is my dual boot with Linux Mint.

My post and then boot starts and at this early stage I can choose a disk boot.
Otherwise I immediately get a GRUB screen with Linux as default .
I scroll down that to Windows 7 and select and Windows bootloader appears and I choose Windows 7.
If I choose disk boot at the beginning I immediately flash to GRUB and then boot Linux.

I know I could probably disable GRUB or change the boot priority but it doesn't sound like it's worth the effort and possibility of making a complete mess.

Oh well

what's that, you have to make a boot-disc to install your version of sp1?

i agree with you, it's not worth the bother.

there's nothing particular wonderful inside sp1 anyway.

No, you do not have to make a boot disk to install SP1.

The official version comes as an EXE file that you run and install from withing Windows 7

If an unofficial version is a ISO file instead, then you could use a progam like 7-Zip to open and extract the ISO contents to your desktop and run the EXE file from within Windows 7 as well.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Not if you know how to verify a file, and know what you are doing.

Possible cause for some of the SP1 install error code 0x800f0a13 prob.

If you are trying to install the leaked SP1 and are failing with an error code 0x800f0a13, I may have discovered at least one potential cause of this error.

Have you ever run Driver Sweeper to clean up problems with your ATI video card drivers? If so, V2.8 (and possibly older releases) of Driver Sweeper can delete some of the OEM ATI drivers that are part of the Win 7 install. These missing drivers can cause the SP1 install to fail with an error code 0x800f0a13.

I've started a thread on the Driver Sweeper author's site to see if he can come up with a solution.

On a totally unrelated issue, you may see high utilization on your system after the SP1 install. This is only termporary and should go away after 5-10 minutes. The cause is the mscorsvw.exe process recompiling .net assemblies in the background.

Today, however, a near-final version of the service pack leaked online for both 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) versions of the OSes, and I took the time to install the build on my main Windows 7 desktop. As I write this, I'm installing it on two laptops as well.
...
(A bit of rumor-busting. Some sites have claimed that SP1 is complete and that Microsoft will release it to its OEM--i.e. PC maker--partners as soon as tomorrow. That is not the case. SP1 is imminent, but it's not quite done as I write this. It won't be long.)

Wish we could get a definitive answer either way

There's at least now three known error codes...interesting to know as if Sp1 through windows update does the same we could be prepared to face.
