Windows Vista, Service Pack 2! :ph34r:


Recommended Posts

that´s the reason, why i asked. i think somehow you have to extract the SP2.exe to integrate the result as a hotfix and maybe also a language file. i tried it with winrar but that didn´t work.


You have to to it with the reverse Integration method:


First install the Sp1, next install the Sp2 and then sysprep and capture it into a new Install.wim!

as it looks like nuhi is not coming back

nuhi never said that he is not coming back. he only said that he has nothing to say at the moment because he is very busy with a fulltime job. so we only have to be patient. nothing else! :blink:

If you aren't afraid of a VM and making a WinPE disc, it's pretty easy to do it. First, you'll need the Vista SP1 AIK, the SP2 installation media, and a VM with a 40GB hard disk (Hyper-v, Virtual PC, VMWare, etc - doesn't matter how you do it). There's a post with pictures here by a user named "bjfrog" that shows you how to do it. Once you've got the install.wim with SP2, extract your Vista DVD to a folder on your machine, replace the \sources\install.wim with the new SP2 install.wim, and use oscdimg to make a new ISO you can then burn.

64 version is here:


Windows Vista introduces a breakthrough user experience and is designed to help you feel confident in your ability to view, find, and organize information and to control your computing experience. The visual sophistication of Windows Vista helps streamline your computing experience by refining common window elements so you can better focus on the content on the screen rather than on how to access it. The desktop experience is more informative, intuitive, and helpful. And new tools bring better clarity to the information on your computer, so you can see what your files contain without opening them, find applications and files instantly, navigate efficiently among open windows, and use wizards and dialog boxes more confidently.

Service Pack 2 for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista (SP2) is an update to Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 that supports new kinds of hardware and emerging hardware standards, and includes all updates delivered since SP1. SP2 simplifies administration by enabling IT administrators to deploy and support a single service pack for clients and servers.

SP2 is an update to Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista that incorporates improvements discovered through automated feedback, as well as updates that have been delivered since SP1. By providing these fixes integrated into a single service pack for both client and server, Microsoft provides a single high-quality update that minimizes deployment and testing complexity for customers.

Service Pack 1 is a prerequisite for installing Service Pack 2. Please make sure that your system is running Service Pack 1 before you install Service Pack 2.

Note: Windows Server 2008 released with Service Pack 1 included. Windows Vista SP1 information and downloads can be found on the Windows Vista SP1 TechNet page.
