sp1 query

if your pc is not ready for the sp1 download does ms updates show a message giving you the reason or are you left in dark by not showing sp1 in available updates.

No, in a word.

You are left in the dark until the issue (whatever the issue is, usually a driver) is resolved.

Incidentally, although SP1 is now released to Windows Update it will be trickled out over time, so even if you are not offered it now it may be your turn in time. Weeks I understand.

thanks for the answer, perhaps my turn to download has not come, being new to vista i do not want to force the download in case there is a clash.

is there a link to download sp1 without installing so i can save it to a cd?

tried microsoft site but it only gave the option to install not save.
