  1. Hi, I have got an OEM copy of windows home premium 7 SP1 64-bit and was unsure whether the "SP1" means its not the full thing or anything weird like that?

    Thank you for your help in advance.

    It is the real thing. It just means that the huge bug-repair which is what SP1 was, is now fully incorporated into your copy of the installation disc of Win 7, so you don't need to download and apply SP1 after your install..

    SP1 stands for Service Pack 1
