Default Release date for Windows 7 SP1

Quote:
Microsoft says that it has delivered SP1 to its hardware partners so that they can begin incorporating the code into their products. On February 16, SP1 will be made available to Microsoft's volume-licensing customers, and to Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) and TechNet subscribers. SP1 will become available publicly on February 22, via Windows Update, through manual downloads, and pre-installed on new PCs and servers.
Microsoft Releases SP1 for Windows 7, Server 2008 R2 to Manufacturing

Of course now I will have to redo all my Win 7 disks to include SP1.

I've had it for a few weeks now

Nothing noteworthy changed though.

Ah cool. Ive been using it for a while myself. The pre release version from Intel worked great for me and provides a nice boost.

You can slipstream the SP's into Windows 7 (again)?
MS disabled it for Vista if I'm not mistaken.

You can do it, but it's difficult to say the least. And the results may not be the cleanest either.

Best to get an integrated ISO from Microsoft.

I don't get why MS removed that functionality from their OSes. It worked so well and was simple to put together back in the XP days.
Guess I'll have to ask my bro-in-law to get me the SP1 integrated ISO when it's on MSDN.
