    Yes just make sure you check the hash md5 check to the ones posted at MS ...Which version you running anyways,I could get the hash numbers to you in pm.

    Your key will work on just the version you have say you had 7 home it will still work with the 7 home sp1 dvd iso ...x32 and x64

    I was seeing it your way just put it into terms that some will understand and think about the 25% performance from a driver update that Wizz said would never happen during his Win8 performance testing.......

    When will Microsoft realize that Windows 8 sucks and Windows 7 is the better OS

    See what I mean Wile.....They just want to bash 8 for not having a START Menu ...yet if they turn the sidebar gadgets on in Vista/7 they are using 8 already.........they look at it but can not see it right in front of them.......

    Ahhh, agreeing with me then. OK.

    And I dislike 8's interface as well, but I do acknowledge it's a damn good OS.

    I've been using 8 since the Consumer Preview. I still hate the interface. Just isn't compatible with my work style. But again, it's a good OS. Just not for me right now. I'd like to get a touch screen, or at least more interface options, before I make the switch.

    But not getting another SP for 7 certainly isn't forcing me to switch. It honestly has no effect on my decision.

    Sorry, but, where the h*ll did you see that lyndonguitar bashed windows 8 for not having a start menu (you quoted lyndonguitar's post).
    You really need to quit trolling and doing your hallelujah Windows 8 evangelistic preaching trying to convert the unfaithful (as you see it), and read what they post.
    Some just don't like the da*n thing for there own reasons and don't want to use it.
    And, it ain't got nothing to do with the F**king START BUTTON or MENU!

    This is a thread about "No Service Pack 2 for Windows 7: Report", not "Love Windows 8, Stop Hatin' NO Start Menu and CONVERT by H82LUZ73"
    You have repeated the same vomit in every thread that has any mention of Windows 7 or 8.

    I am so happy you love Windows 8... :rolleyes:; however, you need to quit bashing others who don't.

    On topic:

    I still want MS to put out SP2 complete roll-up... it is needed IMO... by, the general masses that have low/no bandwidth or bandwidth limited/capped, those who don't do anything but plug and play, are not advanced PC users & don't care about how to build this or create that, the few businesses that need the update SP, and all the other customers who want it.

    I'm not saying they can't, I'm just saying they don't. They reserve big changes like that for service packs because the there are extra precautions and warnings put in place that allow them to make bigger changes.


    Actually, I would say that this will have 0 effect on the misinformed. This isn't news that is making headlines on CNN, Microsoft isn't announcing this in every commercial. It is largely going to go totally unnoticed by the misinformed.

    Most of the public couldn't care less about service packs. They generally don't even check to make sure automatic updates are even working properly. There are still an insane number of people that haven't even installed SP1. This isn't going to force anyone to upgrade to Win8.

    Sure thing buddy...when I see a truly good and valid reason, technical or otherwise, to be such a major detractor/hater.

    Thanks for helping prove my point with your own (mispelled) words. :rolleyes:

    P.S. There is no profanity filter at TPU.

    The post was not directed at you, buddy.
    My spelling is fine; and, you need the spelling lessons... it is spelled, "misspelled" .

    And, I don't care about profanity filters... I will post the way I post.
    Asterisks and all.

    Personal preference IS a valid reason. For instance, I'm not switching to 8 because the interface just doesn't work for me or suit my needs. That doesn't mean it's a bad os, it just means it's not for me. That's a perfectly valid reason.

    Am I NOT allowed to Voice MY opinion in these forum's Like anyone else? It seems as though that IS the Case here currently. Because When I Voiced >>>MY OPINION<<< in regard's to the Fact that I WANT TO STAY with 7, it is Criticized!!? I stated CLEARLY , that if there was No effect on service to Win 7 , that I simply Wouldn't Care about the absence of SP2,3 ,4,999,or whatever. ALL I Stated was that If I WAS being Pushed to Move on , that I Would be upset. Please READ before you Reply , a Hostile Forum environment is Nothing but ignorance , or the lack of respect for OTHERS opinions. Clearly I took the time to Read your Post , why Not do others the SAME courtesy?
    >>H@rdStuff< >>evilman<< If it Suits me I will use it till 2020
    >>Trickson<< T/Y 4 your Support of FREE SPEECH
    >>To the Rest Of the Haters of FREE SPEECH<< Maybe a FORUM is NOT FORU
    Best Regards to you either way.

    You are free to express your opinion here.
    Of course, everyone else is free to express their opinion on whether they concur or disagree with you. That is not hostility, it's freedom of expression.

    After reading though the entire thread, I see nothing that I would consider "hostile" toward you, just dissenting opinions.
    Believe me ... we know hostile. We deal with it all the time as moderators.

    why is this an issue? So instead of downloading a single 300MB file you'll have to download 100 3MB files, what's the difference? And there's the Update Rollup also. This is just a molehill. :shadedshu

    because some of us are updating more than one machine at a time, and service packs were the quickest and simplest way to do that.

    People having a legitimate key should be able to download the latest build (including most, if not all, of the latest updates) in a .iso format. Saves a lot of time in the scenario you just described, although it does not work that way in practice AFAIK.
