    I have a BIOS modded computer with a pre SP1 version of Windows 7. Do I need to install SP1? Or because I have updates enabled, will I have the same experience as someone who has SP1 anyway?

    I don't care about installing again, I was going to anyway and I see that SP1 is out, however not too sure if there are checksums out yet so I'd likely wait.

    Thanks, if they're coming at some point, I will just reinstall my old version of 7 and wait. My worry was that they might not ever be available for some reason.

    sp0 with all the current updates is still not the same as sp1... sp1 includes new features... I also believe sp1 has fixes that were never released before

    I'm happily running sp1 on both 64bit and 32bit systems right now and they both have been more stable than before... I don't care that there are no updates right now, they will come eventually anyway
