My System Specs


I installed SP1 successfully on two Vista machines. One was a Vista Biz 32-bit, and the other 64-bit. In both cases everything went fine.

However, in both cases MSN Messenger was killed and had to be re-installed. Also, on the 64-bit machine I had to reinstall the Auzentech Prelude sound card drives because I got no sound once SP1 settled in.

Both of these machines are still running problem-free. The 32-bit one is a laptop which supposedly should get better battery life. It does boot up a little faster since it's an older machine.

But on my main machine with 64-bit Vista Biz I see no difference. It was smooth as butter already even before SP1.
