System Builder Question
Sep 18, 2011, 7:30 PM
What is the difference between
Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Upgrade
Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit - OEM
It seems most recommend the service pack option when building - What am I not getting? Is that possible? What's the actual difference?
I can't seem to find any information out there with details on which is the better choice. I understand the basic concept of the service pack, but maybe I'm missing something obvious.
I figure there is a simple answer out there, hope you all can help!

The SP1 will save you a lot of time with ungrades to Win 7 after you install Win 7 without SP1.
