Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 is RTM

SP1 is RTM and will be available for download as follows;
  • TechNet/MSDN/VL subscribers - Feb 16, 2011
  • General availability (Download Center/Windows Update) - Feb 22, 2011
It would appear that an uninstall of SP1 Beta or RC is still required before installing RTM - there have been reports of users who are not able to remove SP1 RC due to the uninstall files being placed in a Temp folder during installation, any disk cleanup tasks post installation which might have removed these files will prevent uninstallation. I guess the only safe options would be System Restore back to a pre-RC restore point, or a complete rebuild. Hopefully you didn't deploy the RC to any production servers, the RC will expire on Nov 30, 2011.
