    Has anyone had as many crashes with the RC1 SP1 Vista candidate as I have. I had 2 and gave up. If they are going to release the RC1 for real in Update, that's better than having to rebuild this beast , every two days.:mad:
    Just wondering if I might get the Same results with the real release?

    THank You! I had no Idea this would be a touch and go type install. The SP RC1 was a bad thing for me. I just needed to know if I was the Only one that was like you waiting for the Real thing and Real fixes.

    Hi!!! This is uncharted territory for me. I struggled to get this major SP1 office download into my notebook. Finally, after several attempts, it took. It's been in there for about a week. Suddenly I had a mini-dump---it dumped the Health Check Advisor. A game downloaded from disk bad--Microsoft says it's not compatible. That should not be, it comes from HP. The game is XP and Windows 2000, it should switch. Microsoft asked for data from the Health Check Advisor, 5 digit number, they got about half before the service turned off. Sincerely, Celestra P.S.- This does not look good to me, anybody have any ideas??

    Did you actually turn the pc off whilst installing the service pack?

    Ok, well quite a few users reported problems trying to install using the update utility.

    You can download the standalone version here:

    http://winvistaforums.com/windows-vista-support/13735-sp1-download.html

    If possible, install the service pack straight after a fresh install of vista although if you don't want to scrub your current version off then no problem..

    Thanks. Downloaded and installed standalone as suggested.. Again unable to start folowed by the usual Start up repair and attenpting repair which resulted in in a restore to an earlier point before the attempt to install SP1.. Final message on restart was Recovered from Unexpected Shutdown. Microsoft informed automatically but as yet no response.
    I will leave it for now as it seems as though the installation of SP1 is unattailable.

    Constantly. For me Vista is nothing more than a nightmarish migraine from 7734. :mad:
