Single post please read.
laptop accidentally shut down during windows update

Posting here because I didn't want to hijack the above thread
So is my non SP1 repair disk useless?
Not a problem if needed to burn a new one but it seems not to be widely known issue if true.

1) Do I need to make a new one since installing SP1?
2) May need to be added to tutorial if true.

Hello Mike,

You could still use a non SP1 Windows 7 disc to use the command prompt at boot on a Windows 7 SP1 installation. However, if you wanted to use the other options at "System Recovery", you would need to have a Windows 7 SP1 disc for a Windows 7 SP1 installation.

Thanks Brink.

I'll burn a new one and mark it SP1 version.

I figured BFK would not be wrong!!

Outside of the fact that a repair disc would save wear and tear on the original W7 DVD, does a repair disc offer any additional advantage(s)?

Hello Seekermeister,

Other than that, creating a system repair disc after installing SP1 would be better since you would no longer be able to use a non SP1 Windows 7 installation DVD for any of the "System Recovery Options" other than "Command Prompt" and maybe "Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool".

A large no. of PC users have OEM machines and never got a win7 dvd for their hefty purchase! A repair disk is invaluable for them.
