Installing Windows Vista Service Pack 1 on Vista Ultimate
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:38 CET under Digital - Gadgets

Okay, after I've downloaded the wrong file yesterday (which I've figured out after the 16 hours download), I finally downloaded the right one (read just the Service Pack 1, not Windows Vista including the Service Pack 1) and I've started the installation now:

I've also fired up my stop watch to see if the installation really takes 30 minutes only (which would be fast for a 1.x GB Service Pack) or if it takes longer anyway.

UPDATE: Okay, the installation of the files took something around 25 minutes only. Now the PC rebooted and Widows is configuring the updates (as it said).
Just in time while I was reading this update, the PC rebooted again. We will see what's coming next...

UPDATE: Okay, after roughly 25 minutes of installation and another 30 minutes of configuration the PC came up again is is ready to use now:

Starting Windows Vista Service Pack 1 test
Posted by Arne Hess - at 09:22 CET under Digital - Gadgets

Well, I'm not yet ready to install it but still downloading it (started the download 8 hours ago) but it seems it takes a little bit longer since all 12,000 invited Beta testers seems to download it in parallel:

Anyway, as soon as it's done I will put it on my test PC (to first check how smooth the installation and performance is going) and maybe testing it on my production PC after.
