Microsoft today officially handed off the Release to Manufacturing (RTM) build of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) to its OEM partners. On February 16, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 will be available to MSDN and TechNet subscribers as well as Volume License customers. On February 22, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 will hit the Release to Web (RTW) milestone, meaning it will become generally available for download via the Microsoft Download Center and Windows Update.

Bought time. Then again I have already installed SP1. >.> Nothing broke.


Unlike vista SP1 broke a bunch of crap for me and the same for SP2....

Let's run the Genuine Advantage diagnostic tool and see what it says.


So it appears that this is a valid rtm build at first look. Let's investigate more.

Does everyone recall the KB976902 update that was pushed through Windows Updates not too long ago? This was a servicing pack update that prepares Windows for the installation of it's upcoming Service Pack. Right, let's have a look inside the cab file of this update. Check out those manifest files.


Oh look! They match up perfectly with this Service Pack's build number "17514". I guess Microsoft is in the process of "readying" Windows for a Service Pack that isn't final.

Let's look at the validation tool's licensing tab for good measure.


Yep, matches up just fine as well.

This is the FINAL BUILD of the Service Pack, period. Microsoft is just trying to cover their behinds. Wzor's leaks have been making the "security" at Redmond look silly for a while now. This is no different.

RTM is retail.

Rumors are that they're holding out for the IE9 final build because they want to release them either together or in the same Windows Update package.

Again, more misinformation by uninformed or lazy OCN'ers.

I've posted this twice on this forum but I'll post it again:

There are over 625 hotfixes included in SP1, spanning causes of bsods, handle leaks, memory leaks, deadlocks, performance issues, multimonitor issues, interprocess issues, application compatibility and Windows 7 graphics platform updates.

The fixes previously pushed through WU are only a handful of the total amount of fixes included here.

You can download the xls file here to see all of the hotfixes that were in the Release Candidate, and you can expect even more in the RTM that's been leaked. There's just no official changelog for that yet.

Been waiting for the "official" release to start a couple of customer builds. They will be happy about this because it means their project will not be delayed too much longer.
