windows 7After a lot of rumors, leaked services packs on Torrent websites, detailed list of what it is included in the next Windows 7 SP, Microsoft has finally decided to officially release for everybody to download, what in one day will be the first major update of Windows 7. I am talking about Windows 7 SP1 RC (Release Candidate). Let’s see some more details about this SP and where to download it.

Windows 7 SP1 RC  has been officially released by Microsoft on its servers. The current build (which I would like to remind you is not the  definitive one yet) weighs 353 MB. Microsoft is planning the release the SP1 build this week at PDC 2010 event on October 28th.

The 32-bit version is labeled Build 7601.17105.100929-1730 and is designed as the Release Candidate of  Windows 7  and Windows Server 2008.

Reading from Microsoft: “Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Release Candidate helps keep your PCs and servers on the latest support level, provides ongoing improvements to the Windows Operating System (OS), by including previous updates delivered over Windows Update as well as continuing incremental updates to the Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 platforms based on customer and partner feedback, and is easy for organizations to deploy a single set of updates.”

Windows 7 SP1 Rc is available in English, French, German, Japanese, Spanish.

In order to download it, you need a valid Release to Manufacturing (RTM) version of Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 already installed. If you have installed another Sp on your machine you need to uninstall it before installing this latest SP version.

    According to Microsoft,

    ” SP1 Beta contains previously released fixes that cover specific reliability, performance, and compatibility issues.” (Knowledge Base)

    Does this mean that if I’ve been updating all along, I wouldn’t need SP1 Beta? In other words, is that all it contains?
