Windows 7: Downloading Service Pack 1

My my, so many damn files to choose from for SP1.


Take a look for yourself!

Files of interest

  • 7601.17514.101119-1850_Update_Sp_Wave1-GRMSP1.1_DVD.iso

The first one contains the whole SP1 she-bang for 32bit, 64bit AMD and 64bit Intel chipsets. It assumes that you're going to be using this DVD multiple times on various machines.

  • windows6.1-KB976932-IA64.exe
  • windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe
  • windows6.1-KB976932-X86.exe

The last 3 are the specific files for each chipset architecture. This saves you from downloading the packs you don't need.

  • Windows_Win7SP1.7601.17514.101119-1850.AMD64CHK.Symbols.msi
  • Windows_Win7SP1.7601.17514.101119-1850.AMD64FRE.Symbols.msi
  • Windows_Win7SP1.7601.17514.101119-1850.IA64CHK.Symbols.msi
  • Windows_Win7SP1.7601.17514.101119-1850.IA64FRE.Symbols.msi
  • Windows_Win7SP1.7601.17514.101119-1850.X86CHK.Symbols.msi
  • Windows_Win7SP1.7601.17514.101119-1850.X86FRE.Symbols.msi

The ones in between aren't terribly useful for the majority of us. It's for people who want to debug the installation process and stuff like that.
