Windows 7: Windows 7 SP1 RTM due on February 16 for MSDN customers, Feb22 for web

I would imagine that it's because of the European Union and how they managed to force Microsoft to strip IE out of their Windows-whatever install disks for their region and instead, provide an automated screen prompting the install for the browser of your choice after installation instead. If they integrated IE9 into SP1, the EU would be in another uproar over IE being forced onto consumers. So I suppose they figure its safer to just provide IE9 in another, separate update to avoid another litigation with the EU.

Even aside from the EU and their legal wrangling, it doesn't make any sense to include IE9 from an IT standpoint, either. SP1 is mainly a security roll-up. It has a few new fetaures here and there, but nothing earth-shattering. Many companies are (sadly) not even on IE8 yet, and since much of what we do is through our browsers now...SharePoint, Portals, etc....the browser should be separate so it can be handled/tested/troubleshot separately.

Well it's supposed to be on Technet today but I guess the left coast hasn't woken up yet....checking every 5 minutes...LOL

Am anxious to check the checksum MD5 or SHA1 numbers match the one I got from torrent. If they don't I will not be a happy camper.

It's showing up in my TechNet now....but only as integrated discs so far. Not that I'm complaining.

The EU Fine was high to MS including Windows Media Player in their OS aswell IE8 few years ago. That's why some Windows 7 K & N editions are striped.

I don't mind it, but it is only downloads and separate installs to do more in the long process having a Windows 7 Complete (for those choosen that way)!

OK, the downloads are now showing on Technet, available only to subscribers of course, so I can't post links. But I can post the checksum information for the complete operating system including the service pack as the service pack standalone downloads are not showing, sorry.

Technet only gives SHA-1 information and that is (along with file size):

Windows 7 Ultimate with SP1 x86: 92C1ADA4FF09C76EC2F1974940624CAB7F822F62 - 2444MB

Windows 7 Ultimate with SP1 X64: 1693B6CB50B90D96FC3C04E4329604FEBA88CD51 - 3166MB

You can check hashes using a neat little tool called HashTab, It adds a tab the right click/Properties of any file that'll show you the hash. You can use it to compare any two files.

Stop Press: They've just put up SP1 as a combined x86/x64 DVD standalone - shoot, that means there's no way to check.

Stay tuned.

Could those that are lucky enough to be able to obtain the integrated ISO files though MSDN or Technet, please post the MD5 checksums of their ISO downloads. I'm sure there are some like me that would like to double check them against what they downloaded though other means. I snagged Ultimate 32 and 64 bit that were leaked to the interwebs. I don't have access to MSDN or Technet.

EDIT: I have got to learn to type faster. Thank you Ex_Brit
