    you can just scrap the 6001.18000.080126-2040 because it will never happen..but you can save it for the next round of rumors with Vista SP2 :p

    Yeah, I've read that major bug thing as well, and 'somebody from M$' stated that it'll be 2040!

    I falled for someone's line! Forget about 2040. M$ wanted to disable the bios mods! And what did they do?

    THEY FIRED MICHAEL SIEVERT, Corporate Vice President, Windows VISTA Product Marketing!! :D

    No matter how I try to install SP1 I'm having no luck.

    I first tried on my system that'd been working for for months and months. Via the registry hack, I successfully installed the two needed updates before the SP1 one but when I tried to install SP1 itself, it'd be about 10 minutes before the whole process would just stop. I'd then get an error message :

    "An Internal error ocurred whilst installing this service pack
    Error code 0x80070002"

    So I downloaded the version doing the torrent rounds, and exactly the same thing would happen.

    So I reformatted my system and tried again, on a completely new and fresh install, only to be met with the same error message.

    Anyone got any ideas please?

    Vista Ultimate 64bit, 4GB RAM, ASUS P5K-E and SLIC, Q6600@3.2GHz.....

    Did you happen to use vlite on your install disk? If so that would be why, I haven't seen any reports anywhere yet where someone that used vlite has been successful in installing SP1.

    As it happens I did! Not to remove anything, but to tweak a few settings before install etc.

    I'll revert to a totally clean, un-vlited installer and see how it goes.

    Thought that might be the case. I did the same thing, only I didn't have to go the complete re-install method.

    I have a copy of Vista from the MS/DigitalRiver download (the one you get when you buy Vista direct from MS and opt to download it instead of getting the disk). I have it on my hard drive and I ran the upgrade install from there while still in Windows. Only thing I did to it before hand was to add the OEM files in the appropriate place, then let it do its thing. Took a while to do the install (about an hour), but when it was done all my installed programs and most of my drivers were still there (lost two drivers, that needed to be re-installed).

    Was rather surprised when it was finished that it didn't wipe everything out. Anyway I then went and tried to install SP1, and it worked. So if you have a bunch of stuff installed and don't want to go through the hassle of re-installing everything, maybe give an upgrade install a try.

    Ive now taken the plunge...Install went fine, no problems to report. File copying is faster and activation still works with an ASUS SLIC mod on my ABIT IP35 pro.

    unfortunately, you can't use vlite at all....I also suspect that when it rewrites the 'wim' it somehow alters something that SP1 detects...you must have a 'clean' untouched version of Vista.

    if you installed a RTM Vlite and then installed SP1 on top of that..and it worked then your the first and congrats...but if your talking about using vlite with a SP1 intergrated DVD..then yes you can do that...

    @davejsb,

    I may be way off in left field here, but wasn't there a problem installing Vista on a PC with 4GB installed? Something along the lines of 'you need to remove 2Gb to install and then replace it after install'. Also, if I remember correctly, this issue is not fixed in SP1.

    Just my 2 cents...

    i created a 32bit and a 64bit image with vlite, then used image x to combine the 2 into one install.win , create a dual answer file , so i just have to pick which system i want to install 32/64 job done , install which version i want then install sp1
    im sure anyone can do this as im not that clever:D
    oh and no problem with 4gig ram installed works like a charm

    Three Quick Questions

    1. Quick Question 1: can i install upgrade to Vista first, then flash bios, and then activate?

      Reason for asking: I need to boot into dos, but I read that I can't do that in my win xp;

      Details: In the bios flash instructions for Abit IS7 MB, it says to boot into dos or safe mode if using win 98

      But I read on google that my win xp really doesn't have a true boot into dos capability, and I'd need to make a boot disk. I have no windows xp disk either, nor do I like having to make a boot disk if there are alternatives. Does vista allow booting into dos?


    2. Quick Question 2: In the same bios flash instruction text file, it says to run is724.exe to extract all files, I only see one .exe file and it's named 'awdflash', do I just run this program instead? would I type in command prompt: run awdflash?

      I've attached the bios flash instruction in txt written by Yen

    3. Quick Question 3: When it says to run "runme.bat" with switches, how do I actually execute the command in command prompt

      I ask since the instruction was unclear, runme.bat occured twice in the instruction, please see the attached instruction text file if you need to

    I've attached the bios flash instruction txt written by Yen

    Feel free to help out with just any single one questions :)

    thanks very much

    I ran the commands you mentioned (copy and paste them to a .cmd file) and I cannot see any of the KB you mentioned.

    can you help?
