I will be installing Windows 7 on a few PCs over the next couple of weeks, for GPU benching. Is there a way to trick it into getting updates, or does anyone know of a resource to download essential updates beyond SP1?

Cool, thanks. I thought they had already stopped it for most users. At least that gives me several months to get some old benching rigs set up :)
