Hi Experts,

Have some fresh Windows 7 machines that have not even been online yet, so no windows updates. Can SP1 be installed right away (via flash drive from another pc) to save time, or is there anything via windows update that needs to be installed first?

Thanks!

You should be able to install the SP1 right away.  The SP1 will include missing updates up to the release date of SP1.  You should check for additional Security Updates after installing the SP1.

Sure, you just need to install it using the offline installer. You should be able to find it here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=c3202ce6-4056-4059-8a1b-3a9b77cdfdda
