I downloaded sp1 the other day. I got it from a torrent site as i wanted to keep it to use on multiple pc's rather then downloading it every time. This worked fine with my 64 bit version.

I went to use this program on my back up pc that has windows 7 (x86) 32 bit on it and it says the program is not compatible with it.

Are there two versions of sp1, or am i doing something wrong.
If there are two versions, would you post the links please?

Yes, SP1 is different for 32-bit version. Here's the link:

Aren't the Service Packs always released in a way that lets them be burned to a CD/DVD and/or slip-streamed? And, can't you also still order a production version SP CD/DVD for minimal cost? (e.g. When I once asked for a production XP SP2 CD it cost me under US$3 for S&H, purchased from Microsoft...although it took something like 2 months to get it delivered. It was a regular silk-screened "production" level CD).

Or has Microsoft changed SP distribution?

Thanks Meats.
I was on that download page before, but i guess i was a little confused by all of the different links and i was just looking at the name in bold print "Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (KB976932) " Seeing the server 2008, i assumed it was 64 bit only.

John,
I am downloading it atm, i hope that i can save it as it is downloading on my 64 bit pc.
I did see an option for ordering it on dvd/cd. I just don't see it atm.

I remember I used nlite to slip stream service packs and remove useless stuff from the Windows XP installation cd. If you know of a program that does this on Windows 7 John, then please post it, I will be very grateful.

I haven't tried a specific slipstream method with Win7 yet...I was pretty much just asking if Microsoft had changed the way they distributed the SPs, and pretty much assumed earlier methods of creating slipstreamed content would still work IF Microsoft provided the SPs in a stand-alone form like they used to.

Here's a reference to one Win7 slipstreaming method

I wouldn't be overly concerned about SP1 anyway. Its just an accumulation of the updates already given through Windows update.
