    Wonder if this is the same version as the "1840" ones on the torrent sites everyone has been saying is real.
    Anyone know if this version can be slipstreamed and/or an official link to a pre-integrated iso?

    Cheers.

    i updated using windows update it was a small file basically coz i install every update and check for new ones everyday

    no noticeable improvements maybe faster boot speed but mostly under the hood stuff

    i recomend using windows update because you might have some of the files included in this already installed via windows update

    i've had the 1840 version for a while now (yes i got it off torrents) as i used it to test compatibility while i had a spare machine.

    These files linked are the same size, so i assume they are the same files.

    SP1 did not seem to have issues with the dell version/system i tested it on. Gaming was DEFINATELY smoother, i play supreme commander daily and noticed a lot less HDD chugging during the game - alt tabbing was a lot smoother as well (it no longer seems to page the game to the HDD and lag when coming back, it was instaneous)

    obviously that was just the one (arguable) test, but its favorable to me so far

    Ok I got an "Internal Error Code While Installing Service Pack." window.

    Error Code 0x800700D

    See "some web site I don't want to list"

    Anyone have a clue what to do... Please I really want to install this.

    IIRC there are supposed to be some added blocks for known work-arounds.

    MS have added blocks for many cracks (timestopper etc)

    However instead of locking you out totally, it just cuts back access and gives you annoying popups now. If you REALLY want to try with a cracked version, at least you wont lose data for doing so.

    (personally i tried it with a cracked vista on a test machine, just to make sure my software worked with it - i had no problems, although i only tested for 24 hours)

    Are you running Daemon tools? If so, uninstall and retry.
    That's some kind of activation error.

    Sorry I was gone Now I'm back, no no Daemon Tools, I also read that to after Googleing.

    I do have PowerISO and MagicISO could those also cause my Issue?
