Thanks. Anyone installed from the updated ISOs that include the SP? I've got a server to build tomorrow and I'm considering using that.

lyonrouge: Thanks. Anyone installed from the updated ISOs that include the SP? I've got a server to build tomorrow and I'm considering using that.


Yep. Installed it today on a shiny new dell server. Win 2008 R2 SP1. No issues so far.




Do whatever you want to do man.

i have several servers and win7 machines running the SP1 now, had several running pre-release over last few months. 

some of these were installed from from the sp1 iso, others have been freshly installed OS's from the win2k8r2-including-sp1 iso's.

so far, the only problems i have had is with an HP BL460c G1 blade server running Hyper-v role that wont boot when virtualisation tech is enabled.  a couple of others are experiencing this also - check this technet thread for details.

I had a strange problem on my laptop where the sleep mode no longer worked after SP1 install. Turned off hybrid sleep and usb active suspend and it seems to be working ok now. Just got to keep an eye on it.

After installing SP1 (today), I'm experiencing a problem where putting my media server to sleep drops the connection to my media extender. Apart from that, everything's running smoothly thus far.

EDIT: Actually not quite - my external USB drives are being powered down too >< Spent a few hours trying almost everything I can think of (haven't looked for a BIOS update yet) and am starting to wonder if uninstalling the service pack will be my best bet.

I'll read the release notes today, if i see no direct advantage I'll probably wait for it to settle (if something is going to go wrong, it will happen to me). However, server installs will get it as they are virtualized so should not encounter hardware anomalies

Try having a look in the advanced power settings and see that the settings have not been changed.
Change USB active suspend to off and check the settings for sharing media.

@paulmilbank

Cheers. Majorly OT but...did all that at the time. Settings had changed - changed them back but can't get sleep to work as it used to. Have set system to just having the screen blank out after 5 mins if no activity.
