Vista SP1 RC (official update)

Installed the official Vista SP1 RC on my 2nd PC (64bit version) C2D E6600 @3.2GHz Running Vista Home Premium 64bit.

The update takes about 1 hour.
I haven’t had much time to test. But the problem of “slow file copy” certainly seems to be fixed.:clap::clap:
Be aware. MS don’t recommend you install this update on your main PC.

Maybe you can post your experiences with Vista SP1.

which build have you installed 668? or the new refresh 744?

668 here. I hope to be able to find the time to install the refresh this weekend.

Finally installed it yesterday [Vista HP 32-bit : Q6600@2.4GHz : 2MB] after the machine taking about 4 days to recognise the main service pack file (and yes the two required minor updates were installed first).

Like [B]Dee-27[/B] there was an immediate jump in network copy speed from about 5-6 MB/s to 12-14, but I didn’t see anything else changed in a very short try-out.

I am downloading the latest RC called refresh 2. Refresh one did overall improve my system.

I’m a bit confused by the terminology for the service packs. Mine is persistently advertised at the lower right-hand corner of the screen as “Evaluation copy: Build 6001”…

6000 is the retail version number then the first sp1 was version 6001.0668 then a revised sp1 called refresh 1 is 6001.0788 if I remember right and the revision version of sp1 refresh 2 latest good luck finding it as there isn’t a public release is 6001.18000. The evaluation part just means it’s no good after that day.

OK just checked in Windows Update and the one I installed is 6001:17052.
