    Uninstall Service Pack 1 in 7

    I have tried to do this soooooo many times, I can't count them. Even through cmd. I either get a failure due to "updates not being removed" when using Uninstall Updates, or nothing when using cmd, but silence. I am trying to a non-format fresh install like Fred suggested, but the SP1 has to go first. Any suggestions would be welcomed,
    Thanks

    Download the Windows 7 ISO with Service Pack 1 and use that to burn an install disk following Fred's directions. Just make sure you have your Product ID.
    You can find the Service Pack 1 iso download links here:

    Jerry, do I understand that this install program with SP1 will not make it necessary for me to uninstall my current SP1 and I can select Upgrade???? Sorry, "Yes we have no bananas" I hope I was somewhat clear.

    Yep. If you have SP 1 installed, you should be able to do an Upgrade install over your current installation with the DVD created from the appropriate iso from my link without uninstalling SP 1 first.

    Glad to hear it. Using the SP1 iso saves reinstalling a lot of updates even though you still will have a bunch.

    Jerry,
    another issue has happened. win 7 says during updates it is at Stage 3 of 3, 32% complete for about 2 hours. Something seems stuck. Turn it off and reboot to safe, or what?
