Sorry H2SO4, but you are incorrect. True, they were cumulative for XP (although I'm not sure about SP3), but MS decided not to make SP2 for Vista cumulative (i.e. including SP1) in order to reduce its size (and hence the load on MS's servers).

Thank you Dwarf. I didn't know that. It must be the first non-cumulative OS SP since the NT days.

Thank you for the clarification - I read the FAQ you linked to which was helpful. Can I ask if anyone can suggest if there is any strong case for installing SP2. I finally got my system back on line and all up to date, and at present all seem to be working just fine. Is there a strong and good reason to now go for installing SP2 - and if so am I at risk of destabalising my system at all?

hello all former windows 7 user but had some problems so i reverted back to vista :cry:

my dvd of vista is one of the orginal copies so it doesnt contain service pack 1 or 2. i didnt want to run through all the updates and then have to do sp1 and sp2 so i downloaded each of the files. and renamed name sp1 and sp2.

when i tried to run the sp1 of vista i got an error and cant proceed. so does it look like i have to use the windows update to install them.

i just freshly install vista and download my drivers and now i figured i would go straight to sp1, is that ok?

For what it is worth I just completed a clean install of Vista Home Premium. I have a HP computer and also a set of Recovery Disks. After running the disks the computer is back to factory and now the fun starts. I go to Windows update and there is a lot waiting for me I clicked on install updates and went to bed. The next morning they were all loaded, but no SP1. After doing some research here and at Microsoft I downloaded the SP1 Stand alone version from the Microsoft site without any problems. I believe I read that Microsoft was no longer offering SP1 thur Windows Updates.I then went back to Windows Update and there were more updates to download including SP2. It took about 3 days to get everything where I wanted it but I think the key is to do a clean install. This is the fourth time I have did a complete System Recovery on this computer. The reason for the last one was that I had Windows 7 Professional with XP but returned back to Vista.

i figured something went wrong with my install so i did another fresh install and after, i activated online. i restarted PC, went directly to microsoft downloaded sp1 standalone and installed and then did the same for sp2 standalone package. those two took about 1.5 hrs if that...

then i checked and downloaded the remaining downloads like silverlight and framework, that took about another 25 mins and EVERYTHING HAS BEEN SMOOTH.

i then downloaded macrium reflect free edition, and did a system image backup, about 25GB so if in the future anything goes wrong i will just restore to that image. MACRIUM IS AWESOME!!!

i think my problem had to do with activation, i dont recall if i forget to activate when i was having problems. SO FAR SO GOOD, LOVE WINDOWS AND VISTA

Glad that everything worked out for you. I do have a question about Macrium. My computer is a HP and it came with two paritions my C: drive and D: drive which is my Recovery parition. I also have System Restore so that I can go back into time and Restore my computer at a point when all was well. My OS is Vista Home Premium and I do a monthly backup of all files, photos etc. Will Macrium help me? I am checking out some sites now including this one"which is the best" to help me decide if I need this and if it will be a benifit to me. Thanks.

I have yet to try these links to the SP's. However, Microsoft.com offers Windows XP Service Pack 3 as an .ISO image file. I've tried to integrate it from there (the image file state) and gotten nowhere on client's computers, forcing me to go through MicrosoftUpdate. Is there an easy way to accomplish this?

This may be off-topic or unrelated, but I heard the term "slip-streaming" in reference to SP's or driver files (by using nLite software) to create one's own customized "Recovery CD."

...thoughts, guys?

Animalzilla;

YES. I have done the following method time & time again, as Vista (in general) has been, let's just say, a little sensitive about WindowsUpdate; i.e., 80070002 all the way to the three-digit ones. If you so much as stack-up 1 pending restart, it'll fail ya!

Apologies, in advance, if I step on any toes from previous posters for solutions. This is a GREAT thread, btw, for new info!

With that said, plus the fact that I reformat almost monthly (from massive amounts of software being uninstalled/installed for software testing,) I have found & verified the following method to purge your WindowsUpdate cache (through tech. support,) which allows you to start fresh. NOTE: YOU KEEP ALL YOUR UPDATES, but anything hanging in the balance or history is deleted. In some cases, I've been offered MISSING updates!

So, hopefully this will solve it. I have been VERY active with WindowsUpdate-related errors lately, and am happy to be of further assistance if need-be.

See below for your solution:

NOTE: I am copying & pasting this from a job aide; so, apologies if it seems remedial or talking-down(ish!) :-) OFFICIAL MS DOCUMENT: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058

To clear the cache:
1.) Go to Control Panel \ Folder Options. Under the middle (VIEW) tab,
choose the radio button that allows you to view hidden files & folders.

Click “Apply,” then “Ok.”

2.) Navigate to My Computer \ Windows \ SoftwareDistribution. Do NOT open the folder. Highlight it, minimize, and keep for future reference.

3.) Go to Start \ All Programs \ Accessories \ CMD; right-click on CMD. Choose option 2, “Run as…,” choose “Administrator,” then enter your password.

4.) Type “cd..” (as-in Create Directory, followed by two periods,) until all you see as a path is “C:>” (no quotes.) You may have to do it several times (type CD.., then hit enter) until your directory is clear.

This is the same as %SystemRoot%(etc.,) if doing through Windows Explorer.

5.) Type the following three commands until you’re allowed a new dialogue line:


net stop wuauserv
net stop bits
net stop cryptsvc





IMMEDIATELY NAVIGATE TO SOFTWAREDISTRIBUTION. Now, open it. Click, drag, and highlight EVERYTHING. Right-click over the group and choose “delete.”



If you get "...file is open in another location" type of messages, then go back to CMD and type "net stop wuauserv" again; WindowsUpdate Automated Server (abbreviated) restarts quickly, thus the need to permanently delete ALL SoftwareDistribution files prior to restarting the services. A reboot is recommended.

IMMEDIATELY EMPTY YOUR RECYCLE BIN.


2.) Go back to WindowsUpdate. First, you must “opt-in” for MicrosoftUpdate, which simply means you get updates for products OTHER THAN just Windows (like MSO 2007, etc.)

9.) You will see a markedly long cycle to retrieve information. You did not delete
your updates. You deleted the track marks left behind. The long initial scan
allows the system to verify successful* updates, missing updates, or updates you
opted out of. Be sure to “hide” or “prevent” erroneous updates, like Office Live
Add-In 1.3, Windows Live Essentials, and/or others, like hardware/driver
updates (ALWAYS GO TO MANUFACTURER FOR THIS; IF YOU NEED HELP MESSAGE ME.) At times, updating your hardware through MicrosoftUpdate is ok,
however, there’s always a risk of incompatibility. Say, for example, you have an NVIDIA display driver. MicrosoftUpdate (or WindowsUpdate) will offer NVIDIA hardware/drivers which COULD mess things up. M.S. digitally signs the drivers with x64 but, at times, manipulates the files themselves (kind of like when you install iTunes and you rotate between a missing DVD-ROM drive & "registry/errors" messages from iTunes in a Windows environment; it's because iTunes manipulates GEAR Aspi.wdm & PxHelp20.sys (for example,) as opposed to working along-side them.) This is where the WHQL phrasing comes into play. By nature, it’s an unconventional installation, as it’s through a Windows wizard, not Device Manager.

Sorry for any long-windedness, just wanted to thoroughly cover this.

Hello, I don't think so Macrium would be helpful, unless you have another PHYSICAL disk, not simply another partition. Lets say the whole drive fails then you won't be able to recovery using an image that was saved on that same drive.

I don't know anything about OEM Recovery partitions because I' have built my own machines for years, so I am unfamiliar with the process of recovery using that OEM partition. Is it like a program you run inside of Windows or do use some kind of CD that you boot into and an application is launched to do a recovery?? Sorry just unfamiliar.

Without a second drive, imaging will take forever burning to DVD's. I think for now you can stick with restorations to an earlier time if you have any trouble. I never liked System Restore, because in XP whenever I got a virus and used that feature, it would't get rid of the virus.

With Macrium, the recovery process is so simple and takes less than 20 minutes, (for me) it takes the image backup and completely replaces it over my C partition, its kind of like re-installing Windows but without the headaches.

Hope that helps and Take Care,

Are the links at the top of this thread supposed to lead to downloadable standalone SP's?
I tried the "download" and all it tells me(on the next page) is "thankyou for downloading", i don't get the bar at bottom of screen that gives the option to "save or run".
Have i missed something?
