I re-ran the performance test and my score jumped up.

Is this really possible?
I got opposite effect.
I have laptop with 2GB ram well its normal that i use 32bit so I installed SP1
and my memory now is 2GB (1.80GB usable) and WEI dropped.
Before it showed only 2GB of ram.
and my WEI every time pc restarts says it needs to be refreshed.

Have now upgraded all pc's in the home network to SP1 and it was an interesting experience.

Main desktop (x64 ultimate) went without a hitch but my network adapter was changed from a home network to a public network in the network and sharing center. Took a few minutes to figure out what was going on but now back to normal.

HTPC (x64 pro) mostly ok, seemed to hang at 96% installed forcing me to cancel out, system hung and forced a reboot where SP1 completed the install and is now fine (weird).

Wifes laptop (x86 HP) hung at 95% but again completed after a little persuasion.

All in all.....not the best SP upgrade I've experienced from Microsoft but issues were easily fixed and systems are stable. I will give it a couple of weeks and if no issues then time for new baseline backups (permanent retention) with my Windows Home Server.

Is there anywhere to download a microsoft official ISO including SP1. I have slipstreamed SP1 and the ISO is 2.69 GB (2889379840kb 32 bit OS). I do wonder if the ISO may be a smaller size if microsfot produced the ISO.

Any thoughts?

The Microsoft Official ISO with SP1 already integrated into Windows 7 is only available officially to MSDN and Technet subscribers. But I don't think it would be that much smaller than what you made. Heck, I remember the Vista RTM 32-bit DVD was about 2.3 GB or 2.4 GB but Vista with SP2 32-bit integrated had balloned up to 3.02 GB.

Force cancel (and restart), re-apply the update in windows update if necessary. It appears as if it actually completes the download and/or install without completing the countdown on the updates screen (almost as if the update screen is hung).

Well after nearly a full day with SP1 on two systems, I feel pretty good about it.

I posted earlier that Windows Search was very active right after the SP1 installation, but that stopped, on both systems. It seems like it was working something out.

Anyway everything seems exactly the same. I did a number of benchmarks, all normal. I didn't expect any real gains, but more importantly, at least for me, no losses anywhere. I have tons of software on the HP machine and everything works. Maybe I'm a tad lucky, but regardless this seems like a good pack.

Really happy.

This makes sense. I had a problem with back ups to an external
drive(over USB) and contacted MS. I was told to install an update that
was not released to the wild that solved my problem. Makes me
think this update was included in SP1.

Check this link and look at the 2nd file "Hot Fixes and Security Updates xxxx". Shows 795 items. Hot Fixes were not released through WU but could be manually downloaded if you were having a specific problem, now everyone gets them.

Any time Microsoft pushes an update to a few hundred million users, you can expect some hiccups. I’ve been monitoring the progress of Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 since it was released to the public earlier this week, both on Microsoft’s official Windows Update forum and via e-mail and Twitter.

So far, aside from the issue with non-bootable partitions that I highlighted yesterday, this looks like a successful rollout. But it’s not completely trouble-free. Most of the error messages I’m seeing in reports have to do with Windows Update, with error codes like 80073712, 800706BE, and 8024200D. Those sorts of errors have been a fact of life with Windows Update for years, but this time around, Microsoft has quietly acknowledged an “inconsistency” in the Windows Update code that might cause more problems than normal.
