Windows XP SP3 & Windows Vista SP1 Pre-BETA Released

Recommended Posts

Nice tip Speed.

 

That may come in handy for someone who has a problematic application that doesn't want to play nice with SP3.

 

Thanks.

I actually had a few bugs upgrading to SP3... i forget exactly what it was (I think games were randomly exiting... and winamp didn't work). Of course I made a stupid decision to down-grade back to SP2 and now disk defragmenter doesn't want to run "MMC cannot open the file C:WINDOWSsystem32dfrg.msc".

 

I might try the RC2, my SP3 version is old (the installer says 6.2.0029.0) and maybe slipstream it into a X64 cd.

i got sp1 for vista, the RTM, need to find an hdd, and let me suffer for a few days :(

i've tried the beta sp1 a few months ago, it was alright, i noticed a slight difference, we'll see with the RTM what happens ...

 

ps - THE F%%KING SP1 IS NOT SLIP STREAMABLE - WTF

BTW if you use realtek audio drivers stay away from XP SP3 3300, 3311 might be ok if you install it after the drivers, but I'd just stay away from it until they get this sorted out.

hmm in my vista sp1, it says i have 16 gb of ram in Control Panel > System, ram is oc'ed from 200 to 237mhz, although dxdiag says 2046mb ram, interesting, probably a bug

ide + laptop hdd (4200 rpm) is slow, this is kind of killing the experiment i have (to see if sp1 is any more stable), and i dont plan to infest my main hdd's with Vista crap

UPDATE - i've noticed Vista was more snappier, especially in flip 3d, more testing needed tho

would a 4200 rpm ide notebook hdd really decrease performance for an os?

or is it barely noticable?

There is definitely a noticeable difference between 7,200rpm and 5,400rpm, I can't even imagine how slow a 4,200rpm drive must feel.

I've got a Hitachi Travelstar 80GN 4200 RPM hdd in my notebook and in some instances it feels like it's crawling - large file transfers, photoshop and video/audio editing and encoding you can really tell the difference in hdd rotational speeds.

 

A hard drive upgrade is on my list of things to do to this notebook when I have the time to swap them out and install a fresh copy of Windows.
