Have any of you who have W7 installed SP1?
I am hesitant to do this (fear of something screwing up).
Please relay your experiences. How long did it take?
I read all of the responses here but I have not had the same success. I
have tried installing through Windows Update as well as using the stand
alone update. It runs for 1.5 hours and then tells me that my computer
has insufficient memory (3 gig). I have installed the System Update
Readiness Tool For Windows 7 as recommended my Microsoft. I even tried
doing this in safe mode. No luck. Presently, I am waiting for a response
from Microsoft. I have been bumped up to the 3rd level of support. I
don't think that I am missing much though.
do you have the 32 or 64 bit version of windows. i have heard of all
sorts of problems with installing win7 sp1 on the 64 bit versions. but
look at the link in my previous post and you will see that there isn't
anything important in this update, and arguably things that are
detrimental. might just be microsoft doing you a favor by writing a
poor installation routine.
Mine is 32 bit, not the 64 bit.
that is interesting. let us know if you figure out the cause of the problem. i suspect you considered the available disk space as possibly the 'memory' that it was complaining as being insufficient. otherwise i would look in task manager to see what you might have running in the background that may be hogging your system resources. when in safe mode i don't think you can install any new software, including windows updates, so am not surprised that you also had problems installing from there.
