    Downloading Service Packs

    I recently received a response (in this forum) stating that it is possible
    to download Windows Vista Service Packs 1 and 2 and have them available for
    use by burning them to a CD. Sound great to me but I really need some
    detailed help on how to do this. If I should be posting this to another
    newsgroup, I would like to know which one. Thanks again for your help. (I am
    using Windows Vista Home Premium.)

    Just download the proper service pack (32-bit or 64-bit) and then burn
    the downloaded file on a CD as you would any other file. Get the
    service packs here:

    How to obtain the latest Windows Vista service pack

    It's really that simple, there isn't much "detailed" help to offer, you
    download the files and then burn them to a CD.

    Re: Downloading Service Packs

    I gave you a link for Vista SP2 in your last post.
    You download the file and then save to a CD/DVD

    Re: Downloading Service Packs

    Peter:
    Thank you for helping. When I try to download the packs using the link
    supplied I receive a message that my computer already has the Service Packs
    installed. This is true but I am trying to create a back-up and not an
    original installation. I guess that I just do not know enough about
    downloading, copying and burning. Thanks anyhow for trying.

    Re: Downloading Service Packs

    I am using W7 and when I click the links I get a window that asks if I want
    to run or save.
    Saving to a location of your choice will let you then copy to a CD/DVD

    Peter:
    As I mentioned before I am using Vista and I see no choice "to save" in any
    of the instructions. I have been at this for about 4 hours now. Time to give
    up and forget it. Thanks anyhow.
    Regards

    Re: Downloading Service Packs

    Peter:

    Thanks to your continued interest (plus your patience and perseverance) I
    now have Windows Vista Svc Packs 1 and 2 on CD. I am glad to see that there
    are still people like yourself who are willing to go the extra distance to
    help others. I guess you recognize frustration and disappointment when you
    see it. Thanks again.
