What is Windows Vista SP1?  Windows Vista SP1 is an update to Windows Vista that addresses feedback from our customers.  In addition to previously released updates, SP1 will contain changes focused on addressing specific reliability and performance issues, supporting new types of hardware, and adding support for several emerging standards.  SP1 also addresses some management, deployment and support challenges.

The goals of the Install Fair are to:

  1. Upgrade your system that is already running Windows Vista with unfamiliar (to MS) applications, configurations and devices to pre-release (Beta) version of Windows Vista SP1.
  2. Acquire valuable feedback about the Windows Vista SP1 Beta Windows Update and standalone install experience from the broader community. 
  3. Send attendees away with a usable Windows Vista SP1 Beta operating system.

As a thank-you for your participation, you will receive a copy of Microsoft Office 2007 and a special gift.

What to bring:

  • Your PC, its power cable and special converters if necessary
  • Any special hardware you want to test on Windows Vista SP1 Beta (video or audio capturing during the event is prohibited)

Resources provided:

  • Monitors, keyboards, mice, network cables and speakers
  • Installation CD/DVDs and Installation analysis tools
  • Snacks and beverages

Checklist/Criteria to attend:

  • My important data has been backed up!
  • My system's OS is Windows Vista RTM
  • My system has an Intel/AMD processor running at 1GHz or higher
  • My system has a minimum of 512MB of RAM

    kill and massacre, humiliate Leopard .

    i wont see Windows Vista number one in the WORLD

  • Thats one of the reasons I prefer Vista over XP, updates are less likely to require a reboot.  Thats progress in my book.

  • @someone,I think this is not the place for you then, lol :)

    "Please wait....do not shut down your computer....Windows is configuring updates"...and MS calls this an evolved OS over XP.

  • So close but so far, as Im in San Diego.

    I could do LA but San Francisco is 460 miles.  Still great for those that are close enough to take advantage of this event and walk away with a copy of Office 2007 event to boot.

  • Is the upgrade to Vista SP1 Beta or SP1 RC0 Preview ? :)
