Some owners may wonder if there is a way to download an integrated solution, for the case that they need to reinstall their operating system at a later point in time. If they do not have an integrated solution, they need to first install Windows 7 and then run all the updates online to get it patches and updated to the latest version. The operating system would be ready for use faster if Windows 7 could be installed with the SP1 integrated already.
That’s also the way to go forward for IT departments and networks, considering that bandwidth costs might shot through the roof if all network PCs needed to download the service pack 1 update from the Internet after operating system installation.
One option would be to slipstream the Service Pack 1 of Windows 7 and other updates. But that’s a technical process that takes some time. And, it is not really necessary anymore as Microsoft has made available direct downloads of Windows 7 versions that include the SP1. (note, some users may still want to slipstream, for instance to add specific drivers or tools to the installation process).
All downloads are provided as digital ISO images which need to be burned to a DVD. Windows users can use the built-in ISO burner of the Windows 7 operating system for that or any other DVD burner software that supports burning ISO images (like ImgBurn).
