Windows 7 SP1 Screenshots Leaked

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 39 comments

Windows 7 SP1 is actually happening!

Earlier this week, we reported that testers can expect to get hands on the first service pack for Windows 7 this summer, with the final release happening in fall.

Such reports came from word that the big SP1 is already undergoing preliminary testing, and it seems that someone's already taken and posted screenshots of the install process.

Spanish Windows site Muy Windows (translated) has the screenshots of the Windows 7 SP1 install process.

There haven't been much word on what major changes, if any, to expect other than the inclusion of all patches and fixes released to date and the likely inclusion of USB 3.0 support.

    RegulasDid not the perfect OS according to some fan boys on this site, "Windows 7" just get released several months ago? A Vista SP3, I mean Windows 7 SP1 is coming out fast for such a flawless release.


    the quick service pack release is probably due to their need to get businesses to adopt win 7 since most wait till the first service pack to make the jump it makes sense to pump out the SP fast. Also this will signal the end for XP since one of the conditions of discontinuation have been met which is the first SP of Win 7. So this SP is more a adoption tool than a problem fix.

    Damn, I knew Windows would screw up another perfectly good OS! The SP may be good, but they just HAD to change the language. Now I'll never be able to navigate to my controle pannle! Sigh.

    I was a sucker and clicked too. I'm going to blame it on my mouse finger slipping and pretend it never happened.

    REALLY GUYS... COME ON! This is a service pack for Christ's sake, really no need for screens shots. Not trying to be disrespectful to the author here (because I know you guys work hard), but this is really not of much use to the readers.

    What, there was a chance of this not happening?

    I doubt that SS is real. A new SP will means a new build number

    nail on the head. This is most likely a fake. And really, screen grabs from a service pack install? How more stupid fanboy-ish can you get?

    Yep, if they follow the Vista build number model it would show as 7601. Unless it isn't a completed service pack and therefore not advisable to install as you may get bricked later by the real SP.

    Is it just me, or is the quality of Tom's Hardware articles decreasing in quality every month?

    If it's not a sensationalist story that doesn't have much to do with PC hardware, it's remarkably bland ones that have been ripped from other news outlets.

    I guess I should just be thankful that the weekend joke articles are gone.
