... to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 please?

Has anybody done it yet?

The message window tells me it might take an hour or more.

So far it has taken 5 hours and the progress bar has been in the mid position since it started installing.

Any ideas please?

Thank you.
Paul

5 Hours can't be right IMHO

That is miles to long Paul.
Did mine tonight to check and it took 58 minutes.

It really shouldn't take that long, Paul. So I assume it crashed somehow.
Make sure you've installed the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 (KB947821) first.

OK Jürgen, I've downloaded that.

Perhaps I'll give it a try tomorrow.

Thanks :)

The hotfix installed without drama.

Same thing with the service pack though. It starts and fairly gallops up to the 50% point where it stops and waits... and waits... and waits. :(

Disk John. I tried waiting for Windows Update and it never managed to get the thing downloaded :( So I downloaded the ISO from Micro$oft and burned a disk.

That sort of mucks up my idea, I'll bring the Microsoft SP1 disc with me to Nano if you still haven't sorted with your other disc I have for you.

OK. It is done :)

I just left it to do its own thing overnight and after a couple of hiccups this morning the SP is installed. What a performance :(

Good that you're sorted now Paul. :)

A bit strange. But without looking at some log files any more guessing doesn't make sense. :confused:
