T400s Windows 7 SP1

2011-03-02, 14:05 PM

New to this forum, but I am supporting a combination of T400s, T410, T510, Edge 15 and Edge 17.  Have installed SP1 on two T410s wihout incident.  Has anyone installed on T400s?  This is critical to me personally as this is my home/work laptop.

IMHO, I don't see any incident....much

 

I installed the SP1 on my T410s yesterday and noticed that it did some encryption of the cabinets files after the first reboot. In my case, I noticed that after successful installation, my bootup time increased significantly as it was waiting for 'something'. I traced it to Kaspersky Internet Security which I did a 'repair' and after that it works just fine.

 

However, I am not sure if the 'encryption' messed up some of the secured stuff of KIS, so if you have some of these similar security, you should backup your files first

Did Lenovo recovery backup to bootable external drive. Install went without a hitch. Would advise that if you have a fast internet connection to download the version of SP1 that your system will need (x32, x64) and install from your local drive. The files are 500mb for x32 and almost 1gb for x64. The install took a good 25-30 minutes on my x64 and SSD drive.

It's probably better to let Windows Update download SP1; it doesn't have to download the entire install package, only the smaller portion of it that pertains to your system.

The install itself took 30 minutes on my X100e (MV-40, 7x86, 250GB 5400RPM Seagate) but MSCORSVW ran for a fair while after that, as expected.
