Reading the notes for Windows 7 Service pack 1 it has a prerequisite of MS
update 976902 which as far as I can tell is not offered up by patch
management. Does this strike anyone else as odd to not have it available in
patch management. I would also think that SP1 would not be offered for
install if I didn't have this update installed.

If I run windows update I am offered up 976902 but not SP1. is the prerequisite
