Windows 7: Win7 SP1 released to public

I had a weird occurance today. Computer booted up but the desktop never appeared. It wasn't a total lock up or anything, just a black screen. I was able to ctrl alt del to log off my user account, and reboot then everything was fine on next boot. It almost seemed as if my video card drivers never started. Who knows?

This was on a fresh install, then up to date drivers, then immediate service pack install.

When I installed SP1 back on January 15th, my start-up time became horrendously long. It lasted only a short while and then became faster than before. I attributed it to re-indexing and a reorganization of Superfetch. Either way, it was a short-lived phenomena.

When I clean installed, it showed around 40 or so updates (not counting WiFi, Radeon GFX Card). I'm assuming most of them were in SP1. These are my installed updates

You should install them all, and let us know what happens.

No thanks! I omit those and simply use the Bing translator!

Meanwhile for those running into one particular error when going to install the service pack this may be due to having restored your drive from an image as had been done here on several occasions. The SP1 installer won't be able to access the primary and ends up stalling.

One solution: Start>All Programs>Accessories>Command prompt Right on that to run as admin if you don't already have the elevated command prompt shortcut and type "mountvol /E" followed by a full restart. Immediately the SP installer goes to work on the 64bit 7.

Update down - but

Have got the SP1 installed except for the KB 2385730 (failed both machines) . As you can see I only got four KB's on my desktop and the laptop suppose this is right? Although the KB2488113 had to be reinstalled today on the laptop.

Machines were a bit chaotic yesterday but seem to be settling down after a few reboots. Only problem is a continuous running line of //// in the Google search window or the sticky note - at times on the laptop.

Perhaps a chkdsk overnight might sort things out a bit - good idea or not??

Hi all,
I see this morning the win 7 SP1 is available via update. Question is.........has anybody run an earlier edition and are there any problems with it?.........Is it better to wait for a while to see if any cracks appear?

It's a flip of a coin really. 50/50 chance.

Too many variables to really give an exact answer. Try it out, If things run smoothly leave it go.

If things aren't working out, uninstall it and troubleshoot.
