Hi again johnson :)

You don't have the SP1 installed. If you did, it would have "Service Pack 1" in a line after the Copyright. You can install the SP1 via your Windows Updates.

rONW46K.pngCheck for Windows Updates
Follow the instructions below to check for available Windows Updates and install them:
  • Click on the Windows Start Menu and select Control Panel;
  • From there, click on System and Security and select Windows Updates;
  • Click on the Check for updates button in the left-pane;
  • Wait for the scan to complete and see which updates are found, Recommended Updates and Recommended Updates (or Optional Updates);
  • Click on X Important Updates (X being the number of updates being found) and make sure that they are all checked;
  • Install every Important Updates found and restart your computer once it's done;
Simply repeat these instructions until no more Windows Updates are found.

No. You will need the Service Pack 1 installed on your Windows in order to be able to do that. You can simply install it via the Windows Updates, following the instructions I posted above.

Because the CD you have contains Windows 7 Ultimate SP1, while you only have Windows 7 Ultimate. Since the SP1 isn't present on your system, you cannot use a DVD that have the SP1 on it to do a Recovery. You need to install the SP1 on your system first before doing that.

First of all, did you install every Windows Updates like I instructed you to do? The SP1 requires prerequisites in order to be installed and if it doesn't have them, the installation will fail.

On a side note, you can simply virtually mount the .iso to use it. DEAMON Tools Lite can do that for you.

What Aura meant by his side note is that you can mount the Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 .iso file as a virtual drive instead of burning it to a DVD, saves time.

You can see here on how to install Service Pack 1 for Windows 7. I recommend that you check for Windows Update, install all of the available updates and then install Service Pack 1.

Regards,
Alex

Exactly what Alex said. Also, if you follow my instructions above and install the Windows Updates, you'll install the SP1 automatically at one point from there.

Hi,

 

can i update to SP1 using iso file without internet? 

 

Sort of. If you run the windows setup on the ISO inside Windows it will give you the option to upgrade.

In the end of installation you will get Windows refreshed and updated with SP1, but before starting this make sure you read about this process called Repair Install.
