I just want know if any bugs are occurred after upgrade into Vista SP1?
I'm sure that Google can provide more then enough articles on the subject.
I'm running Vista SP1 on my MBP, and it runs fine. I was also running Vista SP1 RC1 for a while, and that was also fine.
I put SP1 on last Tuesday, and it runs fine. Go ahead and get it. I haven't had any issues with it.
Have you asked for re-activate?
I will apply this update soon, just hate to call MS for re-activate if reactivate is unsuccessful via online.
Thanks for answer my post.
I noticed before SP1 Vista would not see all my memory. After the Install of SP1 Vista now sees a toal of 4gb or memory.
Other than that, it seems to run great and I have had no problems at all.
why would it want you to reactivate? its a simple update not a reinstall of the OS
im not sure what you googled, but a google search for Vista SP1 Bugs gives a bunch of pages about what is included in SP1 several bugs that have been reported, and general user experiences, if you would click on Eidorian's link it is not a simple link to google but a search result of Sp1 that provides more good information about it
I never wanted to be re-activate the Windows after update into SP1, I'm just don't feel good to call MS because it was failed via online and make me to call MS, it take about under hour to get all processing (30-40 min).
I'm going update it, hopefully not asked for re-activate.
I installed it and Vista was still sluggish on my Mac Pro so over the weekend I formatted the drive and went back to XP. I use the Windows side for games only so there really was no need to upgrade to Vista for me but I like to live dangerously.
Already upgraded into SP1 so successfully, no asked for re-activation.
Thanks to everyone about answer my question about Vista SP1.
I don't find any buggy on SP1, just noticed on performance improve and RAM is now displayed as 2.00 GB instead of 1.98 GB.
correct, its not going to because its just an update, you only have to activte if you make a major hardware change, or reinstall windows
the reason you might have failed online, is if your systems clock is wrong, ive found this is one major thing that causes online activation to fail, that and reinstalling within 3-6 months (not sure of the exact number) of the previous install of that keycode
but im glad you got it installed and its working ok for you
there is an currently an issue with parallels and sp1
When using SP1 with parallels some of the system files in windows get corrupted. See the note on parallels site: http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=19418
Thats only if you install within parallels. Installing through boot camp is fine.
Just a note about SP1 for those of you who aren't aware. It also installs a small programme that will leave SP1 permanently installed and reduce the amount of HDD space it has taken up through installation of it (I reclaimed about 1.6GB).
To run it go to C:/windows/system32/SVP1CLN.exe Right click on it and choose "Run as Administrator".
No, it its breaking Boot camp installlations so be careful:

Thanks for the tip.
I meant if you install SP1 through Parallels, it breaks the boot camp partition. If you boot into Vista (through boot camp), it installs fine and won't break the partition.
Boot Camp VM can get broken after SP1 installation in virtual environment.
I don't know about the compatibility on the Mac, but when I installed it on my PC, I didn't run into any errors with hardware compatibilty; albeit, my computer is 5 years old.
