  • Service Pack 1 is RTM

    SP1 for Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 is RTM and was made available for OEM partners.

    On February 16th Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 will be available for MSDN and TechNet Subscribers as well as Volume License customers.

    On February 22nd, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 will become generally available to download via the Microsoft Download Center and available on Windows Update. It will also come pre-installed on new servers ordered.

    Two new features in Windows Server SP1 - Dynamic Memory and RemoteFX - enable sophisticated desktop virtualization capabilities. These features build on the comprehensive virtualization functionality already included in the Windows Server operating system.

      What, don't fancy the 2 hour RC uninstall?
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
      2 2 1 1 2

        No can do. You cannot upgrade. You need to either remove (uninstall) the RC version, or re-install Windows...

              I have a suite of 8 training laptops, all running 2008R2, which needed SP1 RC to make the graphics work properly with HyperV. Probably time to do a test of WDS!

                Ditto WDS. I have only used RIS (with PXE) and Legacy RIS when 2003 SP2 was released so now I really must pull finger and setup a VM for WDS. Found this Tom and thought it may be of interest.

                FYI Tom, uninstalled RC from Win 7 x64 and it took about 15 minutes. Laptop, 2GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM. I had read a post or email somewhere that said the uninstall took them 2 hour. After the long install time of the SP, 2 hours didn't really surprise me. Guess they had a very low spec machine or they wuz wrong about the time.

                    Yup -- keep going with what I have for a few weeks, then a MDT deploy.
