    Haven't you heard?
    "Later this month, the service pack will be made available to MSDN and
    TechNet Plus subscribers".

  3. The release is staggered to allow for any additional feedback firstly from
    the technical beta testers and dev partners on the closed programs, then the
    system builds, then MSDN/TechNet subscribers and finally the general public

    If your system is OK now and fully patched then the changes and updates in
    SP1 will have little significant impact on you so there is no rush.
    Or do you have a specific issue that is fixed in SP1 and was not available
    as a general hotfix or a support available one? or require a particular new
    feature ?

  4. My laptop seems much more stable with the beta, but I'd like to get the RTM
    on it ASAP.

  5. So I have to wait for one of them to leak it? :)

  6. I personally can wait another month. I want the problems ironed out before
    it is release.
    I read that MS is contacting drive manufacturors about upgrading the
    drivers. (I hope Sigmatel is one of them. I had problems with
    the MIDI portion. Other than that, SP RC1 worked great.) And please avoid
    downloading the socalled RTMs from
    they are not official and problably have malware slipped-streamed into them.
    They are pirates, and have tons of viruses flow throw the torrents.

  11. I have a question about Vista SP1. I have read that some computers will not
    be able to get it due to a drive conflict. Will SP1 not inform the user of
    the needed driver update or in fact get the required driver to continue the
    installation once the download is completed? I know this may seem like a
    dumb question, but I am confused by this. I figure as many figure that the
    SP1 will have everything we need to previous updates to Vista will have the
    correct items so ALL can download and install this major change. Thanks for
    your time in listening and replying.

  12. I've got a really annoying bug in mine WITHOUT SP1 (I count as general
    public). Basically the network has shut down as far as my comp is concerned.
    I get internet but I can't see the network and the network can't see me. The
    "connect to wireless network" window takes minutes to open and i can't access
    the "network and sharing center" at all. I've made a resolution to reinstall
    windows because i think that'll fix the problem (if that doesn't, what will,
    right?), but I've made a new resolution to wait to see if SP1 fixes it before
    i go ahead with all the trouble of reinstalling. The fabled stability (in
    Vista? now way!) sounds great. personally i want it to be as stable as
    possible before it reaches the general public (although Microsoft could be a
    little more realistic with their release dates. I mean, come on - SP1 was to
    be released in November. It's been 5 months. (although, with Vista's trend,
    that's not bad. lol)

    This is so annoying....., Feb 15, 2008
  13. Without knowing more about your network it's hard to see what the problem
    is. But yourgroup name name on your computer has to be the EXACT same name
    as the one on your network or else they will not see each other. It took
    quite a few tries to finally get my two home computers hooked up (one had XP
    and one had Vista at the time). So I'm assuming you are talking about a
    home network and not a buisness network...
