The standalone service pack weights at about 500MB for a 64-bit OS version, and includes all previous updates. However, the download can be smaller using the Windows Update, as the rest of the Windows 7 SP 1 only includes minor tweaks.

The most notable fix of Windows 7 SP 1 is its improved HDMI audio, as some users reported that HDMI audio devices can be lost after system reboots. A tweak was also made in a certain behavior of the operating system, such as the way it restores previous folders at log-on.
