SP1 is now available for download or through Windows Update

For those of you running Windows 7 (and that's likely a huge portion of DailyTech readers), Microsoft has officially made Service Pack 1 (SP1) available to the public. This move comes just a week after Microsoft provided SP1 to MSDN/TechNet subscribers.

“Remember - for Windows 7, SP1 will help keep your PCs well supported by delivering ongoing updates, many of which have been made previously available through Windows Update,” said Microsoft Brandon LeBlanc on the Windows Team Blog. “It does, however, include client-side support for RemoteFX and Dynamic Memory which are two new virtualization features enabled in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.” 

The download for the x86 version weighs in at 537.8MB while the x64 version comes in at a hefty 903.2MB.

For those that aren't too familiar with installing Windows Service packs, Microsoft has a handy how-to guide that you can read here.

Yup. I have one, I went through it. I had 6GB of free space left on my Intel 40GB. I spent like an hour trying to free up space (it needed 9 to install). I finally ended up moving the pagefile completely to my Data drive, but it was still annoying.

How much space was left after it installed and you did a cleanup?

Yeah because the hd is the only thing that uses any energy.
