looks like y'all need an SP2 disk and Vlite that, or go with plain jane vista installs.
In previous Windows, slipstreaming was nothing more than using the full offline package with a couple switches throw in at the end. EX: update -s:c:\xp
I can't see them taking away that functionality from admins, techs, etc...
I have a Vista license, can I call them and get them to send me a SP2 DVD? I only have the base version from when it went retail. It's OEM tho, do they do that for OEM?
so does this actually have any fixes or changes that we haven't already recieved through windows live update?
vLite probably doesn't support SP2 yet and I am pretty sure the guy makes vLite hasn't released an update or been heard from in like a year. So vLite might not be possible with SP2 anytime soon or ever.
they send you SP2 on a DVD, but its just the redist, you cant install windows from it.
Lol sorry yes you said it too...
Thanks for the link, downloading now.
Well, I am downloading/installing SP2 on 2 PC's through Windows Update right now!
Thanks for the link, will try it tonite.
ty ty ty
Well, yeah, they did. Pathetic, isn't it?
official now , download it now
OK, I'm downloading this now via Window's Update, and the fucking thing is 567.3MB!!!
What the fuck? I am totally up to date with all my updates prior to this - I can't believe it's so big. SP1 was only about 90MB if you were previously up to date.
EDIT: Just checked the link and the full version is only 10MB more than what I'm downloading. So I'm going to throw out a wild guess that MS haven't optimized the Windows Update download yet to take account of what old updates you have installed.
Time will tell what other people end up downloading via the auto update function.
huh, i don't see Vista SP2 as an optional update in Windows live update
Click on 'Check for Updates' on the left.
ah, i didn't have to do that, i just now got the new updates are ready.... pop up and sp2 was it. thx though
Much difference with it on that goes for anyone who has it now?
well honestly i haven't noticed any difference. Things seems slightly more responsive, but not a big difference. And my download was only ~356mb for SP2, so i recon most people have the updates or bug fixes installed that are part of it, just not any of the OS tuning they might have done.
hm, shoulda done some tests like boot time and whatnot, or how long it takes for all my start-ups to complete in comparison to SP1. oh well either way, it's beneficial.
Nope, no difference on 2 PC's... Time will tell. Maybe is just me, but I think my boot time is longer now
That'll be the difference between 32 & 64 bit versions then I guess.
BTW SP2 has killed my PC.
Set it to install and went to bed Watched it go through the motions fine but when it had finally completed it's thing and tried to start it failed. And Windows repair can't even fix it.
EDIT: Third time's a charm. Restored back to SP1.
I originally paid £86 for my vista.,but i lost my disc,so what do you think i did to get another copy? Sorry mailman,but i am only getting what i paid for.Its only piracy if you crack it.
Just a bunch of updates eh,i'll grab it anyway for future referance,even though i'm on win7 now.
There is no performance improvements with sp2... I think there was a thread a while back showing that if your a gamer you better stay way way far away from it.... if sp2 is installed can it be removed besides doing a fresh os install?
eh, i saw some reviews as well but that was in february, 4 months is a good bit of time to tune the SP more. Though i would like to see a comparison of SP1 to the SP2 they have right now, not the RC from february.
