There should be, because this is retarded - this is how you cracked update to offer the SP1 for anyone brave enough to try it. I don't have all day to keep checking for windows updates. Cmon Microsoft this is just stupid. Offer a single download with all the necessary patches and SP1.

On Vista RTM:

1. Download the self extracting executable and extract its contents to a folder on your computer. Run the script on an elevated prompt.
• To run the script on elevated prompt, after you download the script, right click on the file and select “Run as administrator” option.
• The script sets a registry key on your system. The registry key is required for WU server to recognize your machine as a valid target for Vista SP1.
• After running the script, Windows Update automatic updates would normally automatically update your machine each night for the next several days with the prerequisites and then offer the Service Pack. However if you would like to install SP1 quicker you can manually do the next few steps to speed up the process.


2. Install all pending “Important” updates and reboot. You may have to do this several times to get fully up to date.
• Check for updates on Windows Update. Go to Control Panel System and Maintenance Windows Update and check for updates by clicking on “Check for Updates” in the top left of the task pane.
• You will be offered all previously released Windows Vista updates that you may not have installed on your system. Install all applicable updates. If you have a clean install of RTM, there might be quite a few updates to install. You may need to do this a couple of times to get fully up to date. At some point Update for Windows (KB935509) will be in this list. This is the first pre-requisite install. Reboot your machine when prompted.
• If you see Ultimate Extras, you can hide them by right-clicking and hiding. Simply unchecking them will not let the remaining updates show up. Please install all of the remaining “important” updates.
• If you reboot and rescan right away, at times you may not see all updates right away. Wait 10 minutes and scan again.


3. Install Update for Windows (KB937287) and Update for Windows (KB938371) as they are offered sequentially
• The first package that will be offered is Update for Windows (KB937287) and it does not require a reboot.
• Check for updates on Windows Update again, install and reboot when prompted for Update for Windows (KB938371). You may need to wait 10 minutes and re-scan again if it does not show up right after reboot.


4. Install Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (KB936330).
• Check for updates on Windows Update again, install and reboot when prompted for Windows Vista Service Pack 1. You may need to wait 10 minutes and re-scan again if the package does not show up right after the previous reboot.• This process will typically take from 30 minutes to 1 hour but may take longer on some systems.

Alright. From the biggest Vista hater, they finally fixed the lousy network transfers over gigabit. Took 20 seconds to move 240MB and 2 1/2 mins to move 5.1GB. Previously this would take about 13 mins to move 5GB. Its too bad they didnt offer 1 download as patching SP1 took 3 hours to complete. The poor network speeds were one of the biggest problems I had with Vista. Will continue to test x64 with SP1 and will report. So far, much better.

while it is a release candidate, it's not the actual release. im sure it wont be as tedious.

Crysis is still quite abit slower - 38 FPS vs 51 FPS (DX9 Vista vs XP) same spot, same settings. Thats a disappointment, at least the networking is improved. At this point Nvidia still has alot of driver work to do to close the gap.

If you're a technet subscriber (like me) it's available on there as well. Or you can download Vista with SP1 integrated with it. I'm going to wait for RTM though....
