Can someone advise where to get SP1 for SCCM 2012 RTM?

I'm showing these options for downloads in Volume licensing but I don't know which one contains what I need.

Any particular reason you need to be at SCCM 2012 SP1? Microsoft has released SP2 for SCCM 2012 and SCCM 2012 R2 which updates sites to the following:

SCCM 2012 or SCCM 2012 SP1 ->  SCCM 2012 SP2
SCCM 2012 R2 -> SCCM 2012 R2 SP1

I can be confusing... The following would be the ISO that you are looking for if you want the SP2 flavor. MS does not appear to be posting SP1 separately anymore. My recommendation is that you at lease be at SCCM 2012 SP2 as it provides OSD support for Windows 10:

Simply download the circled ISO and run splash.hta. If you already have an existing site deployed then this will update you.

Let me know if there are any further questions



Will that install SP2 skipping SP1? Do I need to do SP1 first then SP2?
I circled it in the posted picture, its the last one in the list. It is a cumulative service pack so you can upgrade and can be used on an SCCM 2012 RTM site or SCCM 2012 SP1 site

Thanks sorry didn't see the img until last post.
Ok, I will do that after the backup. Hoping to resolve all these issues I've been having with it! heh.
I have extensive experience with SCCM what are some of the issues you have been having?


Well it doesn't appear SP2 will install for me.
I'm running ConfigMgr 2012 RTM / Version:  5.00.7711.0000 / Build number: 7711

I tried the SP2 installer and am getting errors on everything:

The error I highlighted here reads:
Configuration Manager has detected that one or more sites in the hierarchy are installed with a version of Configuration Manager that is not supported for upgrade.

There's only one site...


Yeah I think I need Sp1 first
Your picture is cutoff, can you post the full window so that I can see the error message? Assuming you do need to upgrade to SP1 first. You could try the bundle here:


Its an evaluation download, but its still the full source files, all you need is a valid license key, which you should already have.

run splash.hta. Also ensure that your version of SQL is a supported version.



Ok thanks I think it may be this one as it's a 1GB download


No that's "System Center Virtual Machine Manager", the correct binary would be the first link on the posted link "SC2012_SP2_ConfigMgr_SCEP.exe". However this is the same version that you have been trying all along...I am reading mixed results. Some are saying that RTM can be upgrade to SP2 directly. Yet others say that it cant...yet nowhere have I been able to find the specific SP1 media. Every link has SP2 integrated so it should allow an RTM to SP2 upgrade path. Can you post the full window with the "unsupported upgrade path" line item highlighted again? It's cutoff




I think it may be best to just start over and re-deploy.
It's an RTM I inherited and isn't being fully utilized. It really is a mess and at this point, since the upgrade isn't going smoothly, it'd take me less time to get it up and going in a new instance.
Not to bail or give up but it's just the best decision at this point for our situation.
I thank you for the follow-ups, the advice and the links.
Sounds good. Not sure what your budget is but if you can afford to license the R2 track of SCCM I would recommend licensing for SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 as opposed to sticking with the RTM track. If your starting from scratch and can afford use the latest and greatest. Sorry I couldn't be of further help
