    W7 SP1 offered w/ date of 2/12/15


    Rebuilding my system today W7 HP 64 bit from ISO w/ SP1 and I am offered W7 SP1 w/ date of 2/12/15 (KB976932 ) and size of 9 MB. I am pretty sure if it is SP1 that it would be a bit bigger than that.

    What gives ? Was SP1 re-released? I found no indication of this.

    Well going to do another backup before addressing the 199 other updates offered.



    Oh bummer I am installing 137 updates, I had it set to check only. I maybe starting over again. Might as well go shopping....

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    I think it may just be poor naming of an update for SP1:

    Windows 7: What is Windows 7 SP1 (KB976932 Published 2/12/2015)?

    You can download it from Microsoft Update Catalog...

    http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Home.aspx

    These show the dates and sizes of the 32/64-bit service packs...

    Thanks looks like nothing unusual after all.

    Seems like a dopey way to present that update.

    Only 6 of the updates W7 tried to in stall took. I am looking at yet another fresh install, I will be extra very cautious about plugging in the Ethernet cable this time.

    KB976932 is the article for Windows 7SP1. There could've been a change in the detection mechanism. The KB article is at revision 10.1.

    Typically any W7 HP x64 installation I have done installs about 135 updates right after installation, so I don't think what you are seeing is unusual at all.
    Just a fact of life with Windows. Takes about 2 hours to download and install.

    Lucky you !

    With my ~6.5meg sync speed, the full WU and MS updates take about 9hrs.

    Did not say it was. I am about to do it all over again a hand full at a time w/ images in between.
    The updates do take longer than the install which is about 15 minutes.

    I am just about to install the LAN drivers and do another image. Then on to updates ....

    Guys thanks for all the suggestions re updates, I will add book marks for them. I don't see the size of the updates to be a problem at present, it maybe at some time and these would come in handy. I have in the past used WUD http://www.windowsupdatesdownloader.com/

    Portable is good BTW
