So the SP that I have on my USB Drive, is the right one then? I don't need to download it from WUpdate?

OK at present, today we had the sun, temps didn't get above 45 F and there's a nearly full moon in the sky, apart from that nothing much changes around me, that's if you don't count me getting shorter by the day

If you downloaded it from TechNet or MSDN yesterday or today, then you have the final code and it is the same. I don't like trusting updates and SPs from other sources.

That's up to you, to be honest. Since it is available now, I wouldn't bother with anything that wasn't obtained from an official source.

Windows 7 Enterprise x64 SP1
 
 

Downloaded the ISO for the Service Pack yesterday (from TechNet) and installed it on all the machines running 7 (and Server 2008 R2). Very lengthy install (45 minutes - 2 hours). Fastest on Server 2008 R2, which is a dual boot pc, dual-core AMD, with 7 Ultimate x64 of which SP1 took a bit longer to install. 1 laptop (2 yr/old Lenovo) running 7 HP took a little longer. The longest was my newest and fastest laptop, a triple-core AMD, running 7 Professional.

So in order from fastest install to slowest: Server 2008 R2, 7 Ultimate x64 (x2), 7 HP x64, 7 Professional x64.

I downloaded the sp1 from ms technet and the dvd ran and updated my toshiba laptop and my i7 machine in a short time. all seems well. It looks like it is a good one, can't see a lot of difference yet. I then went and updated my ie8 to ie9 and it seems to be ok. Good thing I made an acronis image before I did anything with sp1. So I am safe for a while. <G>

Just a FYI. I'm currently working on a very detailed Slipstream Windows 7 SP1 tutorial, and should have it posted tonight sometime. This will be handy for those without a TechNet or MSDN subscription to be able to create their own Windows 7 with SP1 installation DVD or ISO file.

I'll post back with a link to here it when it's complete.
