partition 1 looks like the system reserve
I would say that that partition 2 is Windows 7, mine also has 200MB section of reserved space...just a guess here keep in mind.
partition 3 is probably SL
partition 4 is whats left

why cant you just mark 1 of them as active and boot in to it then find out then?

1. Click Start > type "diskpart"
2. Run the following command:
select disk 0
list partition
select partition x

x is the partition of Windows, you can look at the partition size to recognize it.
3. Update to SP1, then restart.
4. Run diskpart again and use following commands:
select disk 0
list partition
select partition y

y is the partirtion of Mac OS, you can look at the partition size to recognize it.

And now you have Windows 7 updated to SP1 while keeping the original dualboot.
Good luck!
fyi, this fix also resolves "error code: 0x81000019" when trying to use windows backup to an external hard drive on a dual boot windows 7 machine.
