WIn7 SP1

I am about to install Win 7 on a new system. The install is the original
WIn7 without SP1. How can I obtain a copy of the SP1 in advance of the
installation so I can install it during the installation?

You can get whole DVD images off the web. They come from Digital
River, a company that sells Windows 7 electronically. And the URLs
for the downloads, are listed on other web pages. The thing Digital
River would tightly control, is the release of each license key
to the paying customers.

For example, I have a copy of X17-24209.iso and that is
"64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1". That one is 3,319,478,272 bytes
in size. So SP1 is already in that one. You do a Google search
on X17-24209.iso, and you'll find other references to downloads.

If you want the SP1 files as a separate standalone thing to
install, they're here.

windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe 903.2 MB <--- Win7 SP1 64 bit
windows6.1-KB976932-X86.exe 537.8 MB <--- Win7 SP1 32 bit

If you do the SP1 installation via Windows Update, that can
result in as little as ~100MB of files being downloaded. When
you download the standalone files, they include more versions
of stuff. Windows Update can identify more precisely, what is
needed, and just download that bit.

Tres cool.

I look for items on MS website and I never find what I'm looking for.
Thank you.

As long as I've got your attention, do you know where I can get the SP4
of Win2000 pro? I want to get a copy of that in case I ever have to
reinstall this machine.

You can go to Digital River and download Windows 7 integrated SP1 ISO
images. Try http://preview.tinyurl.com/6denr26

There are two files. The SP4 one has an obvious name.

The other one, comes after SP4, and is called the Update Rollup 1 Revision 2.
It consists of patches, not enough of them to make a Service Pack, but
helpful in any case. Occasionally, you'll run into software that
*needs* the Rollup to work (sad, really).

I kept a bookmark for Rollup, but apparently didn't keep one for SP4.
But the Rollup page, near the bottom, has a link to SP4. You can
check the file size or MD5sum, and get some idea whether you are
getting the same file or not.

To compute an MD5sum, you can use the Microsoft tool "fciv.exe".
I thought this was gone, but it seems to be back.

Fyi...
If using the Win7 RTM to install Windows 7 and later updating to SP1 you won't be able to use the RTM version to repair a Win7SP1
system. I.e. It would be wise to have:
- the full retail W7Sp1 on DVD (per Paul's comment and download link)

Summary:
-You can use a Windows 7 SP1 installation disc (ex: Technet (available), MSDN (available), or retail to do a repair install with on
a currently installed Windows 7 SP1.
-You cannot use a slipstream Windows 7 installation disc to do a repair install with on a currently installed Windows 7 SP1.
-You cannot use a slipstream Windows 7 installation disc to do a repair install with on a currently installed slipstream Windows 7
SP1.
-You can use a Windows 7 SP1 installation disc (ex: Technet (available), MSDN (available), or retail to do a repair install with on
a currently installed slipstream Windows 7 SP1

Major Geeks has an unofficial W2K service pack 5:

http://www.majorgeeks.com/Microsoft_Windows_2000_Unofficial_SP_5.1_d4817.html

I used it in a VM setup and it works just fine.

Also see here for what it does and doesn't contain:
