Problem updating windows vista service pack 2

SP1 hosed one of them so bad, it had to be returned to the store, and the second one had to be worked on by Redmond to fix these update issues.

I've got probably at least five clients all suffering with Windows 7 update issues right now. These are all 64bit PCs with at least 6Gbs of RAM, and a dual quad core processor. It is nice to be able to get rid of an OS that is DOA but sometimes life support is possible.

If you are re-loading Vista onto an older machine using pre-Service Pack 2 discs you'll definitely want to download and install Vista SP2. If you said, "backup your personal files." You are absolutely correct.

There is nothing worse than dealing with a bad update that destroys your files due to a corrupted file, power or mechanical failure.

Before you install the Vista SP2 upgrade,however, let's perform the following checks.

Make sure that Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) is installed before you try to install Vista SP2.

Vista was not (vastly understating this) a great OS and by the time I realized I had a problem I was dealing with the BSD. It said it wasn't downloading but in reality it was (in small portions). The keyboard was destroyed by someones idea of scented oil.

For a step-by-step breakdown check About's tutorial on how to use Vista's built-in back-up utility.

Now that you're all backed up it's go time.

Do not unplug or shut down your computer during the installation.

When the installation of SP2 is complete, a message will appear on your screen informing you that, "Windows Vista SP2 is now running".3.

Many people roundly dismissed Windows Vista when it first rolled out in 2007, but the truth is there's still a lot of Vista in the operating systems that have followed.
