You can do an upgrade/repair install with media that already includes SP1.

It is quite easy.

Extract the installation media onto a hard disk/usb stick.

Look inside the sources folder of the extracted media and change the cversion.ini from

If your installation media is a different edition ( e.g. if it is called Ultimate ) then just delete the file called ei.cfg

Now run setup.exe

Then select Upgrade when it asks.

It will transfer files, settings and programs automatically. It might take a while depending on your system . An hour is probably average, but a slow system with lots of stuff installed could take twice that.

It is a good idea to back up Activation first.
