Should I really install Windows 7 x64 SP1 after so many people get BSODs?

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/03/29

I’m hesitating to install Windows 7 SP1 on my development machines.

I do use the MUI language packs, and people doing that get BSODs after installing SP1.

Michael S. Kaplan (one of Microsoft’s nicest i18n people), wrote it like this: Lack of confidence in a feature can keep me from installing it. Oh yeah, a BSOD can, too (in a reaction to Why am I receiving “Error C000009A” after installing Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)?)

Two weeks ago, I had two co-workers that got a C00000034 too on difference machines; those could be resolved (not to complete satisfaction, but they could work) and cost a couple of hours work.

Opinions, anyone?

    I installed SP1 for Windows 7 x64 Ultimate through Windows Update without any problems. I didn’t know there were issues with it so I just let Windows Update perform the update.

    I installed Windows in the English language and later installed the following extra language packs: Deutsch, français, Nederlands and Thai.

    I don’t know if I ever changed to any other language than English.

    So perhaps I was lucky or because I never changed languages it worked or because Windows is mainly in English it worked.
