Are you trying to get the SP1 straight from Microsoft or another site?

Would you please see my reply on your thread here.
http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/313869-shortcuts/page__view__findpost__p__2116382__fromsearch__1

It appears, but please correct me if I am wrong, that you have this matter here on "system recovery and installation of Service Pack, but you have also opened a new topic on "shortcuts".
Is this the SAME computer please.
