Windows 7: Testers get first Windows 7 SP1 beta build

28 Jun 2010   #21

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

If I can get VirtualBox working again (which I need to do anyway), I'll probably set up a VM for testing purposes. But I certainly won't be putting on my physical system for a while!

I don't how you could make an accurate comparison with 7 on VBox there when the service pack while your present install without it is on the main drive. I tried that seeing Vista installed on a vhd last year and saw both service packs installed and not one difference was noticed.

When installing SP2 on the previous version while installed on the main drive many were noticing a difference while making the comparison to with or without. Likewise I will most likely end up seeing the beta go here to see what else if anything is new with it besides being a large rollup of updates and a remote desktop tweak/fix being seen.
