Windows 7: Vista SP2 is out

Windows: 7100 RC1 & Vista SP2
 
 

It's still running chkdsk every boot up. That dirty bit solution didn't seem to work. I did get a bsod for the first time recently since I installed sp2. Weird. Never ever had a bsod with Vista, Vista sp1, or Vista beta sp2.

I haven't seen that on the 32bit Home Premium edition. Are you running the 64bit edition of Vista there?

32 bit Vista Home Premium. I will hopefully have success with an un-install of SP2 and try again.

The checkdisk running at startup is not the scheduled checkdisk you would set if you looking for any problems but a new fast scan included with SP2 there. That's part of the automatic maintainence MS apparently saw added into SP2 and nothing to worry about.

Pretty cool, thanks for the news!
My guess is that when Windows 8 [Beta] comes out, there will be a Vista SP3

So this happens with everyone that installed SP2? Doesn't it suck having to wait for the CHKDSK every bootup? Weird I am the first person to even query about this issue.

Vista SP2

Hello to all the Microsoft Knowledgeable and Power Users in this Forum. My question is Why Would Anybody want Vista 'anything' when everyone here know that Vista has sub-standard performance - ergo - SevenForums that is Windows 7?

1. I build my own systems and Vista runs just fine on all of them. Nothing sub-standard here.

2. Windows 7 IS still beta, and I don't run production on beta operating systems.

3. However I do run Win7 RC 24/7 on my HTPC because Win7 Media Center is much improved over Vista Media Center.

A scheduled a check disk if you set will run for about 3-4 minutes as expected for a complete scan of the drive as well as fixing any errors if that option is selected. The quick scan seen with SP2 however goes right by in only a few seconds. And that's with several drives in use here.

When first getting past the post tests you see a quick listing of each drive very briefly like a new automatic quick scan only item added in. With Vista's SuperFetch replacing XP's PreFetch you then saw the defragmenter running low profile in the background keeping the drive at a 0% fragmentation level.

Apparently MS added one more thing in for Vista rather then waiting until some startup problem comes up and you run the startup repair this will scan and likely alert to any problem just starting to be seen would be possible idea for seeing this one.

Getting back to you there Dragonfly you know as well as I do that Vista is far more stable and secure then XP ever could be. The main problem however is that Vista came out 3 times larger in size in some ways over XP being a little too much for a high percentage of older machines.

7 on the other hand was MS realizing that Windows couldn't continue to constantly grow and grow and grow... You see more drive space used for 7 while the core elements saw a majpr change in general.

You can see that when each install of 7 goes on in half the time it took for XP even to reach the desktop for the first time after 40 minutes there. Instead of seeing the bloated gui mesh with core as the OS continue to grow 7 has been reworked from the ground floor up not just a pile of new items thrown on the same thing.

Really have never seen this problem. Being a Vista Beta Tester, I think you have some schedule set so as to test your HDs on every boot. Check your scheduler. and as you know BSOD is 95% Bad Driver.
