Windows Microsoft has announced that the first service pack release for Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2 will hit the download servers starting today. The company had already released the final code to OEM partners earlier on February 9, followed by MSDN customers, TechNet subscribers and volume licensing customers on February 16, but now anyone will be able to get it either via Microsoft's Download Center website or through Windows Update.

Seems to work pretty well.

I installed in on Friday, and have noticed no issues. My only nagging complaint I had with 7 was weird behavior playing my favorite podcast with WMP, and that seems to be resolved.

You been lucky, there is tons of problems reported all over internet. It seems that there is performance drops with non-Microsoft databases and other products. There is also situations where servers have deactivated. Also some updates have caused servers to go BSOD limbo and only solution is to reinstall whole server.

How about booting WinPE or Linux for an emergency registry edit? Just disable the faulty driver or service and you're fine. Logical, but unsupported. ;)

Personally I hate Windows for hiding all the stuff a normal system engineer must have access to. The Windows(tm) way is always backup your system before installing anything and revert in case of problems, or reinstall.

You have to live with it, the system is crap.

Exactly who on the Internet is running 7 as a server?
This is nothing but trolling to the N'th degree.....
