Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 7 SP1 for manufacturers has landed into the wild just like the previous builds 7601.16537, 7601.16543 and 7601.16562.In a blog posting on Thursday, Microsoft’s Russian Windows Virtualization team confirmed that the final build of Windows 7 SP1 is 7601.17514.win7sp1_rtm.101119-1850.

The software giant posted a software update on Tuesday that applies to versions of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. The update (KB976902) is a prerequisite necessary to successfully install and to remove any service packs to all versions of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

Microsoft fueled speculation of a January release of SP1 when it released a Service Pack Blocker Tool in November. The software maker typically releases Service Pack Blocker Tool Kits around two months before service packs are released. The software giant published a Release Candidate build of Windows 7 in October, marking its final push to RTM.

SP1 will include RemoteFX which provides rich 3-D graphical experience for remote users. The service pack also will include a series of incremental updates, previously released on Windows Update for both Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.

Available in both 32 and 64 bit, the hashes for the leaked build are as follows:

According to WinRumors, Windows 7 SP1 will include RemoteFX which will provide rich 3D experience for remote computing.

The Redmond company did confirm officially that Windows 7 SP1 RTM will be provided to customers by the end of March 2011, and it appears that it’s right on track to doing so.

So far, an official general availability deadline for Windows 7 SP1 RTM hasn’t been provided to the public.

At the time of this article, only information on Windows 7 SP1 Build 7601.17514.101119-1850 RTM had been leaked in the wild, with the actual bits not yet available for download.
