Does SP1 have any impact of the recovery media or the recovery process?  Or is it only needed on the backup/protection side of SSR?

If you find this is a solution for the thread, please mark it as such.

We have released an SP1 version of the recovery disk if that is what you are asking about.

You should use this when doing any future restores. You should have access to download it here:
