  • Does the installation works? The official documents also say that the Sp1 is only 45MB to download, so everything is ok and fine:

    Standalone package

    About 426 MB (Five language package)

    Windows Update

    ·         About 45 MB (Windows 7)

  • This is correct. If you have stayed current with all updates then the windows update version of SP1 will be 45MB. If you however do not stay 100% current it can be upto 535MB.

  • SP1 update downloaded through WU is differential, hence the lower download size.
