I am trying to figure out the best way to deploy Windows 7 Service Pack 1 to all our clients ( 120 roughly) without having to go and do a manual install on each client. Originally i was planning on deploying it through group policy but then i realized i can only find .exe and not the .msi required for group policy deployment ( anyone know where i can maybe download a .msi sp1 file? )  .
Then i tried to create a new software package in SCE 2010 and when it go to 100% i got a "Verification of file signature failed" error message.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to deploy SP1 because i am completly lost now.
 Thanks in advance

Quite often the .msi is embedded - and if that's the case then running
the exec from a command line with /c will hopefully extract the .msi file.

You can usually use /t to say where to extract it.

Try something like setup.exe /t:C:\extracted_files\ /c

If you want the deployment guide, go to here:

This has all the available options to you, including manually adding the SP1 file to WSUS, if you just can't wait.

Personally I think I'd wait a few days before deploying a new Service Pack - let others find out first what the problems are going to be!  :-)
