Windows 7: Win7 SP1 released to public

I did a clean install with integrated install media a couple of weeks ago. I managed to snag a leaked Microsoft Technet ISO image of Ultimate with SP1. I used that to make universal install media/USB thumbdrive. My system is definitely not any slower. It seems faster, but you usually get that anyway with a clean install. On the day I did my install Windows update reported I was totally up to date when I ran it. The only thing there was an update for Microsoft Security Essentials. I ran it twice just to be sure. Since then I've had about 4 security updates and 3 windows updates. The rest are for office and other Microsoft products. I've downloaded the stand alone versions for 32 and 64 bit, I'll save them to a thumbdrive for future use. I downloaded the full SP1 ISO too, just in case I might need it. That would be something I could loan to somebody and not worry about getting it back.

hmmmm............ Now that SP1 is officially out, is there anyway I can get the ISO of Ultimate with SP1 so that anytime in future if have to reinstall my Windows 7 Ultimate, I can use it? And I would prefer a torrent.

As a next question, will it be legal if anybody who has that ISO makes it available as a torrent? (The end-user anyway has to have a valid key to use and activate it.)

I can't find a link to the site I got them from, I must have deleted it from my favorites or lost it after my last clean install. I don't think we are allowed to post it anyway. Somebody could probably PM you and not get into any trouble. Torrents can be risky! My MD5 checksum and hash codes matched those of the official TechNet downloads so I'm reasonably sure my images were not altered from the originals. I don't have and can't afford a Technet or MSDN subscription so I had to take my chances and download the ISO images off of the Internet. I used my legally bought product code to do my install. I think Microsoft should let you download an ISO if your PC is activated and validated. I don't see it happening but I bet it would make NetBook owners very happy. No product code, just the ISO so you could make install media like a bootable thumbdrive.

Ya, that is exactly my thought too. Why can't Microsoft validate my Windows and let me download the ISO? I have two genuine Windows 7 Premium and one Ultimate.

Hmmm..... I just went here - Windows 7 Service Pack 1 validated my version of Windows and started downloading the ISO. What am I missing

Validate and more forward

It just takes a second to validate. What's the big deal?

^ that is only the SP1 update. In their words "This DVD image contains standalone update for all architectures."

What we want is the slipstreamed Windows 7.

Have you seen this - Slipstream Windows 7 SP1 into a Installation DVD or ISO File. It's not the slipstreamed version itself.... but you can make your own
