Windows 7: After reinstall of Windows 7 x64 SP1 is not offered

After reinstall of Windows 7 x64 SP1 is not offered

Hello everyone,

I reinstalled Windows 7 this past weekend and all updates installed successfully but SP1 was not included. I know the simple solution would be to install it manually, but I'm reluctant to do this because it is not showing up via Windows Update. Could I be missing an update that Windows needs in order for SP1 to show up? When I check for updates the only one showing up is an optional update for Intel graphics, which I don't want.

Thanks for your help.

I think I found the problem. Windows 7 SP1 will not appear in Windows Update if you have one of the following files on your computer:
Igdkmd64.sys (64-bit), versions through
Igdkmd32.sys (32-bit), versions through

I have the 64 bit version. Looks like I'll have to update the driver, but is the latest that Gigabyte offers for my mobo and seems the most stable.

If that's the Intel graphics driver, try removing it and installing the latest from Intel's site. Or, try Windows Update for the latest. Either way, that shouldn't prevent your SP1 from appearing. If that doesn't show in Windows Update, it usually means you are missing a required update that comes before it.
