    Reinstall

    You will have to reinstall the OS.

      Not True

      Uninstalling SP1
      If you chose to create backup files when you installed SP1, you can use Add or Remove Programs or the command prompt to remove SP1 at any time and restore your computer to its previous state.

      It is only possible to uninstall SP1 if it was installed as an update to an existing operating system. It is not possible to remove SP1 if you installed it as part of an integrated installation. In this case, you can only uninstall the entire operating system together with SP1.

      To remove SP1 using a command prompt
      1.
      Open a command prompt and type:

      %systemroot%\$NtServicePackUninstall$\spuninst\

      2.
      Type Spuninst.exe /option. Replace option with any of the options in the following table.

      3.
      Press ENTER to continue, and then follow the instructions that appear on your screen.



      Option Description
      /U
      Removes the service pack in unattended mode. If you use this option, only critical error prompts appear while you uninstall SP1.

      /Q
      Removes SP1 in quiet mode, which is the same as unattended mode except that the user interface is hidden. If you use this option, no prompts appear while you uninstall SP1.

      /Z
      Does not restart the computer after the process of uninstalling SP1 is complete.

      /F
      Forces other applications to close when the computer restarts after uninstalling SP1.



      Important

      If you choose to remove SP1, a dialog box displays a list of the applications that you installed after you installed SP1. If you continue to remove SP1, these applications might not work correctly.

      Multiple descriptions of some applications might appear instead of a single generic description. You should ignore these additional descriptions.

        Form I seen in the beta process, uninstall SP1 neta create some post-problems.
        It will be much faster to reinstall the OS instead to go and "fix" all the
        problems

          Butt it is possible!!!
          We can be talking about prodution servers and not home computers. I these cases we can not reinstall the system just because we want.
