<h1>Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 available for download

As expected, Microsoft has made the first Service Pack for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 available for download and started to distribute it via Windows Update. Currently only an ISO file is available for standalone download. It contains the complete packages for x86, x64 and Itanium. Separate packages should be available shortly, with links for downloading x86 and x64 already operative. The 32-bit package is around 550 MB, the x64 package 925 MB and the ISO image just under 2 GB.

The complete package (which Microsoft designates as a "network installation package") contains the complete set of patches and hotfixes and will ensure that a newly installed copy of Windows is fully up to date. However, on our 32-bit test system installation, SP1 required prior installation of a further update (KB947821). The complete package is intended primarily for administrators who need to get SP1 onto multiple systems.

Users wishing to update single Windows installations to SP1 are advised to download SP1 via the Windows Update function, which downloads only what is necessary to bring the system to the current patch level and avoids downloading patches which have previously been installed via Windows Update. The result is a much smaller download.
