Five, is it, from Home Basic to Ultimate?
oh! that one ah

it applies to all vistas then; they didn't specify, as long as you have SP1 installed

meaning if you have not installed a service pack before, install the first SP first, then the second SP

My vista was auto updated with SP2. Currently, working well ans sense a bit faster. :think:
The only thing I have to reinstall the window live messenger.
That's what I noticed too. Booting time also felt a little bit faster. :think:

Wah! Got service pack means that Vista have detected more faults..

I thought they had "given up" on Vista and went on to focus on Windows 7? :dunno:
There is no such things as "bugless" in IT, be it Operating Systems, firmwares or applications, it is a matter of addressing the "bugs" and fine-tuning it for your need.

Hmmm... Since they are almost the same. I wonder if they can make vista less resource hungry like W7 with SP3. :think:

Will the PC automatically upgrade itself to SP 2? My machine still running on SP 1. (checked from Control Panel > System)

It also depends on whether you have bluetooth dongle connected to your system. If you have that, SP2 is not for you as there is a current bug with that. They are "working" on it from what I heard. This is why I don't get SP2 on my system.

SP2 doesn't make booting up faster, infact I have tested the booting time with sp1 and after upgrading to sp2. It is 5 sec slower in booting up with SP2 installed.

YMMV. Different hardware will give different results. ;)
