Will reference this nice article by Paul Thurrott:http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/winvista_sp1_ga.asp
Essentially Paul says there are minor issues with some audio drivers. The Windows Update will scan your system, and make the SP1 available if it is appropriate for your machine. If you have drivers that are at issue, it will ask you to update drivers before giving you SP1. There is a chance that until your driver is available, SP1 won't be available for your PC for some time.
Is this tested and true that SP1 will not download if it knows it will have a problem with certain drives? I read somewhere on line (can't find it now) that somewone writing in some blog said they downloaded SP1 and then their audio card did not work. So seems this person was not notified about the problem until they had already put SP1 on their system. And can you uninstall SP1 if it's a problem?
I'm a little gun shy about it, even with a pretty new computer - bought in Oct '07 with Vista preloaded.
Any other experiences or knowledge on this out there?
Why don't you just see if your audio card drivers are up to date?
I ran the install and it was a breeze. I agree w/ Pupator that my system was a bit sluggish feeling at first, but now it's back to ramming speed..
Good idea. Thanks, Slo. Not sure where to do that and the audio card is not named within the specs on line for the machine, HPa6130n. But I'm not at that computer at the moment. How can I check the card?
SP1 is not available via Windows Update for my wife's HP DV6224. I updated the sound drivers, which did have new updates, but SP1 is not in Windows Update yet.
Gonna wait, see what happens, I am in no real rush.
Off to pollute it with Norton and 8 zillion toolbars, yay!
Man, you are looking for trouble, aren't you.

Installed SP1 on my Vista Home Premium system... But so far I'm impressed with the improvements.
Many usage-hours into SP1 and still no problems. My systems are faster - particularly when moving or copying files - and completely stable.
I have (again, this time for good I think) switched to FF3b4. I never liked FF2 for various reasons, so I stuck with IE7 which I, mostly, liked. But lately there have just been too many frustrations with it so I downloaded FF3b4. It's nice - fast and good looking, particularly with Vista.
I followed the documentation and then triple checked it.
I rebuilt my OS since I did some hardware upgrades and can't gain access to SMUGDAV after the fresh install. Everything is up to date and I'm running SP1.
I follow the steps on the WIKI. Once I get to step 4. I get the following message:
Thanks for the reply Andy.
Hopefully some other Vista users can either proove that this is just my machine or Vista wide.
Any ideas on where to start looking for certs?
Security is an area I'm openly lacking in.
