Replacing Dell manufacture DVD of Windows 7 with an updated one RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I've bought a Dell Studio 1557 with a manufacture DVD of Windows 7 Home Premium, together; which is not updated to Service Pack 1

    I'm going to install an updated version of Windows 7 Home Premium on it. But I don't want to pay for a new Windows 7 Home Premium DVD, again. What can I do?

    Install the service pack onto the current install, the way it's designed to do it?
     
    What is your problem with that?

  • I think that the installing of SP1, separately, affects the execution and boot speed and some compatibilities.

    It shouldn't - you end up with exactly the same files present in the system. Although there may be minor effects from fragmentation, these will tend to disappear over time.
