Installed via Windows Update without problem (although the download was a bit slow - I guess the servers are being hit hard). System seems snappier now, but that's probably just wishful thinking.

Ditto. smile

I have noticed a decrease in memory usage after booting up (X64 Ultimate), from 1.7Gb to 1.4Gb with no other changes other than the SP.

I think i had simliar problem, I got a fatal error message when it was applying part of the service pack update after first reseting the pc.

Result being that i had to reset my computer then do a system restore to get back in to my pc as it failed to boot in to windows.

So be warned people make sure you have a fall back plan as there is a good chance installing it will fail and you won't be able to get in to windows!

It took an hour to download and install for me this morning, although I now found out there is an ongoing problem with BT broadband in London and the southeast which also may have had a hand in it.

Mine was going slow too, MS servers will have been hit hard

Apparently Microsoft don't like my backup method.
I got a 0x800F0A12 error running the SP1 install file because "A disk management tool from another software manufacturer was used to copy (or clone) the disk or partition on which you’re trying to install SP1"

Yes, I regularly clone the HDD because it has several OS on it and cloning the entire disk is relatively painless.
Microsoft's answer to solving this problem is to reinstall Windows 7. Not likely!!
Of all the OS on the HDD only one has a habit of wrecking the others when not being installed first - Windows.
I am certainly not reinstalling and I am sure many others when having problems updating will not update. So, that's another generation of Microsoft OS out there not patched and vulnerable.

I suspect the real issue here is that I am running one of the clone drives and not the original install drive. I will try installing SP1 again when I next make backups (yes MS, cloning is a backup method). There are only two backup drives so if after the next backup SP1 still fails it will mean the original drive is the other one! smile
