Windows 7 with SP1 (media refresh)

Back in February, 2010, I posted instructions on how to create a bootable USB drive that can install any version of Windows 7. As of yesterday, ISOs of updated versions of Windows 7 with SP1 have been made available to Microsoft TechNet and MSDN subscribers.

If you want to update your install media with the ‘slipstreamed’ version, grab a torrent and then check it against the official Windows 7 SHA1 and ISO/CRC hashes.

The filenames for the 5/12/2011 versions of Windows 7 Ultimate are below.
