    Having recently built a 2008 VM I had checked the specs for the downloads. I didn't want to have to use or keep the sp1 installer if I didn't need to. Unfortunately they are not cumulative.

    Re: SP1


    I came across a prereq. list of updates. KB 949939, KB 937287, KB 935509, KB 938371. Got the first and last, but have no way of getting the other two.
    Not in the available list and can't get more until the currently available list is cleared(45 updates awaiting installation), one of which is SP1 framework 3.5(all updates failed since that came up for install).
    My research tells me SP1 released in 2007, updates are already up to 2009. Can't get SP1 installed, only thing i can do now is try one or two updates at a time and hope they are successful, until, hopefully some more updates come through.
    This is the part where it kills my download capability, gets eaten up even if updates failed.
    I don't understand why these updates don't come in the correct order.
    I had read somewhere that SP1 is just all the updates up to the release date, but have not been able to load it straight into a clean install. All info on the subject that i have found says that prerequisite KB's are required, and i always have trouble getting the right ones when they are needed.

    For the download no previous patches are required. You only need to install certain patches if using windows update.

    The standalone SP1 download would not install. Had to do it 3 or 4 times now, have not been able to get it to install until certain udates have been successfully installed.

    The SP1 standalone file that i'm using is one that i have on flashdrive. Have used it approx. 12 months ago on two separate occasions, both successful.
    Have copied to desktop, run as admin. Message i get is

    "This application has failed to start because 'ADV[]PI72Dll' can't be found"
    "try reinstalling appblahblahmight fix the problem"

    Having a lot of trouble with wireless signal, keep losing connection, quite often no indication on desktop.
    had a lot more info in this post, lost it all due signal drop.

    Click on start menu and type in cmd. Without double clicking on command prompt right click on it and select run as administrator. In the command prompt box type in scf /scannow.

    Thats the first time anything untoward has shown up in any scans performed on this install of vista. This one is the one i set up last year after major crash.

    Brief history: Purchased machine and Vista software Nov 2008.
    Crashed Oct 2009.
    IT Tech clean installed and set up Nov 2009. All good until Jul last year.
    Clean installed and fully updated vista again myself. Crashed again about 6 weeks later.
    Had problems when trying to do it all again a second time. Stuck at SP2 IIRC.
    Purchased W10 software, installed no problem but could not get online.
    Tried Vista again, stuck at SP1.
    Called Tech to fix. They installed W7. Couldn't or wouln't install Vista or W10.
    I used W7 for internet access to find info to get W10 up and running myself. Successful.
    Then i got Vista up and running again. Successful.
    Kept W7 until i was confident everything was OK, then deleted it.
    Realised a while back what a mess i had made of the multiboot setup. Now trying to set it up better.

    Have been having minor issues for some time now, although nothing has shown up in any scans. Can't recall if i've ever run sfc as admin.

    Happened again, lot more info on edit and lost it. Got to the end and it won't save.

    This indicates that service pack 2 is already installed. Right click on computer and look to see if it says service pack 2. If that's true then you don't need to install service pack 1.

    Re: SP1


    Ran it on the wrong HDD. Will have to switch drives and run again, then transfer info.
    Have original HDD, 150GB, oldest and most up to date version of Vista. Having problems.
    Also have 2nd drive, 500GB, latest install of Vista.
    Trying to rearrange the system to negate the need for the old HDD, should it fail. It has "sys res" from the W7 install that rendered my W10 install(on other HDD) inoperable unless still connected to the system.

    Here we go.
