Today we officially handed off the final release (RTM) of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) to our OEM partners. On February 16th Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 will be available for MSDN and TechNet Subscribers as well as Volume License customers. On February 22nd, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 will become generally available for folks to download via the Microsoft Download Center and available on Windows Update.
For Windows 7, SP1 will help keep your PCs well supported by delivering ongoing updates, many of which have been made previously available through Windows Update. It also includes client-side support for RemoteFX and Dynamic Memory which are two new virtualization features enabled in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. Read more about those updates here from the Windows Server Team.
Thanks, team, thanks Barndon for the news. Can we have a build number please ?
I want it nao! I've following this release for months.
Is the 'Release Notes' available for Win 7 SP1? If yes, please provide the link.
@Cosmin, the full build number is 7601.17514.101119-1850. :-)
@Thanda, no the release notes are not yet published for SP1. Release notes will go live once SP1 is available for download on to the general public on Feb. 22nd.
Thank you so very much, Brandon for the string !!!
Hello Brandon, can you tell us whether the SP1 integrated Windows 7 ISO's will also be available on Feb 16? Thanks.
sorry for incomplete question, the above question is regarding msdn subscribers. thanks.
Will there be an SP-1 "Cleanup" package like there was for Vista? This package saved a lot of disk space by reducing the size of the WINSXS folder. This is a big deal for people with SSD boot disks.
Will Windows 7 SP1 come with a shiny new version of IE9? (Probably not since tomorrow the RC will be unveiled.)
@bbinnard - using the built in Disk Cleanup tool in Windows 7, you can choose to "Clean up system files" and then choose to remove Service Pack Backup Files that should free up space and do what you're asking. See link to screenshot. However, I recommend only advanced users do this.
Is there a list of post SP1 updates?
What about the SP1 integrated Windows 7 bits? Will they be available on Feb 16 for MSDN subscribers?
Sorry but after RTM/final sign off, it should not take THIS long to RTW (Release to Web). It did not TAKE this long for past Windows releases (Windows 2000, XP or Server 2003) even with billions of users. I would like to know what process exactly makes it take this long?
"Vn Visa" - above poster - is a spammer. Anybody minds deleting his posts?
Hello Brandon, can you kindly provide any confirmation about the above question regarding SP1 intgrated bits?
Is the blog post at whatrevitwants.blogspot.com/.../windows-7-sp1-download.html appropriate, or should the author remove it?
Looking forward to testing out SP1 on both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 with Hyper-V R2!
Brandon - thanks for your reply to my question about cleaning up the WINSXS folder, However, on my system (Win7-64 Home Premium) there are only 4 options shown in the Files to delete dialog: Downloaded Program Files, Recycle Bin, System error memory dumps, and Thumbnails.
Perhaps the additional options you showed in the screenshot are only for Win7 Ultimate?
@bbinnard - Did you make sure that you chose the "Clean up system files" button?
@anonymous2011 - you sould never download any Microsoft update or service pack from anyone other than Microsoft.
Still no reply about SP1 Integrated bits for MSDN subscribers... are they also coming on 16th ?
Brandon - no, I saw no "Clean up System Files" button. What I did was r-click C: and then \Properties\General\Disk Cleanup. That dialog shows the list of deletable stuff plus the More Options tab where I can delete all but the latest shadow copy or remove programs. Where is the "Clean UP System Files" button to be found?
This article gives a good explanation of how to enable additional options for Disk Cleanup:
HOWEVER - the Remove System Files option is not one of them I followed the articles instructions and enabled just about everything but the size of my WINSXS folder did not change.
There are several other articles that talk about the Remove System Files option, but for the life of me I can't find a way to make this option visible. (My system is WIn7-64 Home Premium.) I'd really like to know hot to do this this since the size of WINSXS is a major issue for everyone who uses an SSD boot drive.
Thanks for whatever help you can provide on this.
PS: adding an SSD boot drive was the single biggest performance booster I've ever done. I highly recommend making that upgrade for anyone who wants noticeably better overall system response time.
What about the slipstreamed ISO for Server 2008 R2? When will that be available from the volume licensing site?
As a TechNet subscriber, when can I expect to see download availability for SP1 today?
I have checked Technet and MVLS site but no SP1 available yet. UK time here now is 13:10, when can we expect to see this available?
It's 8:54 AM in the US EST and I still have not seen SP1 yet.
What time will this be available?
It would appear round about 14:00 hrs Pacific Time.
Geez! You guys are so desesperate! Is 6h am atm on PST!
We're not "desesperate". We are east coast IT people. The blog said it would be released on the 16th. If it is released at 14:00 PST then I for one will have to wait until tomorrow to begin deploying. 5PM EST is when my staff goes home for the day.
Its up on technet.. but what about volume license customers?
What about the RSAT for Windows 7 with SP1
Is it ready to download, too?
The link woluld be great :)
I have not been able to locate instructions on how to apply SP1 to a "Server Core" installation. Is it as simple as copying the file and executing with the appropriate command line switches ?
I have Win7-64 Home Premium installed on Kingston SSD with all updates applied. When I originally installed Win7 6 mos. ago I turned off the Gadget Platform with no trouble. Now I am unable to turn it back on. When I try I get the message "An error occurred. Not all features were successfully changed."
After doing an extensive Google search it is clear this is a continuing problem MS has yet to resolve. I have tried all of the posted fixes (re-registering DLL's, removing the Zones registry hive, running SFC /Scannow, etc.) with no benefit.
Is there really no hope for fixing this? Maybe a fix is in SP1?
@bbinnard - I suggest posting your issue to Microsoft Answers as there are folks there who can provide better assistance with regards to your issue:
screenshot at windowsteamblog.com/.../win7_5F00_sp1_5F00_cleanup.jpg is 403 forbidden
It is the 22nd. Waiting waiting waiting :D
When is it being 'pushed' through Microsoft update? Not just offered, but a mandatory push?
Can you confirm if .Net 4.5 is shipped w/ SP1? Thx
