If my machine implodes I'll just restore the image I made just before installing the SP.
It is my Standard Operating Procedure for me to image an OS install before I do something potentially
hazardous like installing this SP.
I agree, I'm sure Mike knows what he's doing.
If he doesn't he's fired!
On a related note: thank goodness the Forum is fixed.
The volume of traffic must have been too much for the servers.
Well guys, I trust have read through many threads and trust Mike. I've been a member for several years and basically read through the posts when I get an email. You da man Mike!!! I'm proud to say that I had no problems with both x86 & x64 versions.
OH, and the Service Pack Cleanup Tool gave me an additional 4GB!!!!!!
Why are we so worried? It's the OEM RTM version that went out to OEM's, Just someone has just uploaded it to torrents, I seen today in a PC Mag that it won't come through Windows update for another 2 months yet to the public.
Mike is leading us here, I think he knows what he is doing, if not he's sacked from the job.
Why was the forum so slow this morning, How could this have and effect on our new server. If it does it again, find a newserver.
See here the other Windows 7 Forums have it mentioned:
Windows 7 SP1 sent to OEMs
Microsoft confirms Windows 7 SP1 RTM, released to OEMs today - Windows 7 Forums
6. PLEASE SEED FOR AWHILE (leave uTorrent open with the file at 100%) Why?

Well I've tried both versions (MS site and the torrent off here) and they both do the same thing, install all the way fine, then configure to 100% and then say unknown error and revert and uninstall SP1. Even tried the preinstallation SP kit off MS download site as suggested fix for said issue and didnt help at all, wasted 3 hours of my life for nothing... bah. I've got every single windows update installed so can't understand it.
Our discussions for the night, which included talk about the Service Pack, can be found in that forum as well.

So if someone has windows already updated using windows update installing this will bring nothing but that new feature?
It offers features and fixes:

I'll probably run the Service Pack Cleanup Tool soon. I'm not in a hurry. Things are going fine here.
