It works faster than SP1 Expires Mar 2010. Still lots of Disks thrashing about on Boot but after boot the disk activity stops and it performs more like it should have done first time around.
BTW you need to install SP1 first before applying SP2. I'm using the PUBLIC SP2 from the microsoft site (not the one"out in the wild") .
Build 6002 mine says -- note this is VISTA SP2 not Windows 7 to avoid any confusion).
Strange problem I have with VISTA and Windows 7 (restored images to the same disk on the same machine so no "Virtual Machine" " Disk compression / defrag" alterations etc
Identical Software packages installed on each system
VISTA X-64 SP2 "C" drive 35 GB used
Windows 7 X-64 build 7048 19.7GB Used
What gives ?. I can't see any missing features in Windows 7 that I'm using in VISTA.
Both clean installs -- identical software installed and NO tweaks -- just "Bog standard" from the disk installs with Language and Keyborads set to UK English -- so no "Language pack" difference either --in any case I doubt if installing Icelandic or any other language pack on VISTA would add 16 GB after its been installed
(Updating the SP2 build to Windows 7 doesn't cause any problems -- still uses more disk space than the clean Windows 7 install).
