not for me
To those talking about the OEM crack: please stop. we dont want this thread locked because of piracy talk.
Some OEM cracks still work under vista, but pretty much all other cracks dont. If people want to talk about it.. do it via PM. I'd like this thread to stay where it is, unlocked and without people getting their posts deleted.
im not referring to piracy. i have a legit copy, but vista sucks with the number of legit licenses they blocked.. so i reverted to the OEM hack... y bother wasting my time contacting MS when this works perfectly fine.... if it ever does get blocked.. then i'll waste my time with MS!
(probably woulda helped if i mentioned i owned it in the 1st place! lol)
yeah i used an OEM crack to test on another system here before moving SP1 onto my main rig, but again the mods may not like this (remember that if MS comes along and sees a thread where it looks like people are pro-piracy, TPU gets a big hammer dropped on it)
I own vista on my two main systems, and two copies of XP (laptop + spare/backup) - but i cant be stuffed buying another vista just to test service packs
Anyway back on topic - i've had no ill effects from this so far, only minor positive gains. Anyone else of the same opinion?
Vista Service Pack 1 Internal error (Error Code 0x800700D)
Error Code 0x800700DIf you have "internal error..." (Error code 0x800700D) message the reason is an IO error during instalation of Vista Service Pack 1. You won't be able to figure that out from Microsoft help forums where they are telling you to check your memory, your hard drive (your car, refrigerator, dishwasher etc).
Most of the time everything is 100% OK with your PC. You will spend hours reading Microsoft posts and still you will not be able to install Vista Service Pack 1.
So this is the deal. The error you get is because the permisisons. I know it sounds strange, but there is easy way to prove that I am right. Just try to copy SP 1 exe file to some other place like your other PC (shared folder) or some USB storage device. You won't be able to copy this file because you will get the same error code but this time the message will be different (IO failure).
In order to install Vista SP1 just download this file to some other place on you network or maybe even USB storage (most of them are large enough to store 400MB which is the size of SP1 update). Click on file to start installation. You will have Vista SP 1 installed in 1 hour or so.
It's strange but it is a way that I installed Vista SP1 without any problems. Also, you can try to turn off UAC control before installation. I did not try to install service pack 1 using this way so I do not know if it can help. As I said I did install Vista SP1 using USB storage device to store SP 1 EXE file.
I hope it will help you.
i've allready installed SP1, but before i did that i've spent around 4 hours uninstalling unsuported language packs. Microsoft says that later on they'll release SP1 which will support all languages.
