Installing Windows Vista SP1


About to install Windows Vista SP1 on my Dell D620 Laptop, if I don’t report back for a while it’s all gone horribly wrong!

Interesting to note it makes sure you have your laptop plugged into the mains before it will let you continue.

I downloaded it here 434Mb download, interesting to note the filename Windows6.0-KB936330-X86-wave0.exe be interesting to see what the wave0 bit means with later releases.

I’ve not had any real problems with SP0, but might as well put it on; few colleagues reporting better speed… but think my disk definitely needs deranging anyway so thats probably more relevant.


Wish me luck!
