Vista SP1

bink.nu has just posted:

For those hunting for the Windows Vista SP1 rtm, if you got your hands on Microsoft Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Release Candidate Refresh 2, you have the RTM bits!!!

Microsoft released this refresh build end of January though Windows Update only to selected testers, but clever people can get the downloaded SP package from the Windows Update download cache and they have the stand alone package of SP1 RTM Geeked

@echo off

reg delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSp1 /f > NUL 2>&1
reg delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSP1 /f > NUL 2>&1

reg add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSp1 /v Beta1 /t REG_SZ /d dcf99ef8-d784-414e-b411-81a910d2761d /f

Just as for the SP1 beta that is running right now, I'm doing the same to get the final SP1 bits. Just like before, some updated reveal others. Tomorrow I'll let you how this worked - from this Vista, I hope Geeked


Oops, didn't work, no SP1 update revealed - still on build 6001, Service Pack 1, v.275. Or did it failed because of the SP1 beta?!?.... I'm afraid this is not the best of time to loose my workstation, so I'll try to uninstall it later.

[update II]

After uninstalling build 6001 (SP1 beta), and after 2 restarts, I'm back in action:


(apparently this is an RC1 - Build 6001.18000)
