    Windows 7 SP1 [Full Offline Download Links]

    February 23, 2011 Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Arrives
    Paul Thurrott's Supersite for Windows Article.


    Microsoft Download Center

    If you'd rather download the service pack manually, you can do so via the Microsoft Download Center, which notes that SP1 works for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 (which it does). There are a number of downloads listed on this page, so don't be confused. The ones you are most likely concerned with include:
    DVD image with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of SP1. The file named 7601.17514.101119-1850_Update_Sp_Wave1-GRMSP1.1_DVD.iso can be used to create a DVD that includes an interactive Setup routine that will install SP1 on both 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) versions of Windows 7. This file is 1.9 GB in size.
    Interactive installer (32-bit). The file named windows6.1-KB976932-X86.exe can be run on any 32-bit version of Windows 7 to upgrade that system to Service Pack 1. This file is 538 MB.
    Interactive installer (64-bit). The file named windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe can be run on any 64-bit version of Windows 7 to upgrade that system to Service Pack 1. This file is 903 MB.
    Note that Microsoft recommends that you follow the instructions in a KB article before you install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 from the Microsoft Download Center. The important bit here, from what I can tell, is to ensure that Windows Update KB2454826 is installed first. If you install SP1 via Windows Update, it will check to ensure this update is installed first automatically.
    You can count on Paul Thurrott to have some of the latest info and download links
    regarding the newly released Service Pack 1 for Windows 7.

    Although a tested a reliable way to slipstream this service pack is currently not available yet, at least on Paul's site, this should not be long in coming.
