Ask DLS: How did your Windows 7 SP1 upgrade go?

windows 7 sp 1 service pack 1
Now that the Windows 7 SP1 download is available to the general public and it's also being pushed via Windows Update, we thought we'd check to see how smooth the upgrade process has been for you.

It wasn't all unicorns and double rainbows here in the Download Squad bunker. One laptop refused to progress beyond 66% complete, even after several retries and reboots. Another workstation was left running the update all weekend, and just hit 98% when we returned to work on Tuesday -- only to fail at 99% and start rolling back the operation.

So tell us, DS readers, how was your experience installing the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 update? Hit the poll after the break!
