Default Windows Vista SP2 Hits RTM

On the tails of the release of the Windows Vista SP2 Release Candidate to the masses, only a couple weeks later Microsoft has delivered the RTM Escrow build to its Connect beta testers. Microsoft had already released this build several days ago, reportedly, to its internal testers.

Beta testers can find the new build on Windows Update via Windows Connect. It has been packaged with multiple install options to test, including Slipstream versions and Standalone installers. The new build string is 6002.17043.090312-1835, so if you are a tester or have a copy you can check its authenticity against that.

RTM Escrow
Escrow still doesn't guarantee that it is final code.

It says there are Slipstream versions so does that mean that will we be able to slipstream SP2 onto an authentic Vista edition with or without SP1?

that probably mean that you can download already slipstreamed version if you are a tester.

remember Escrow is the final step, if they don't find any issues, the same code will be FINAL GOLD RTM. But if they find some HUGE issue then a new build will be made.

probably mid to early april.

escrow usually takes about a week to confirm if escrow code will be final.

btw, SP1 RTM escrow did end up being final RTM.

I never could get the last release to install, even with the readiness tool they provided. I hope I fare better with the official release.

if you used the vlite (slipstreaming tool) then you will be out of luck, will have to reinstall OS.

No, never tried it nekro. I just have a standard SP1 install with all updates. It's not even heavily tweaked.

It installs completely and as soon as I hit "finish" or whatever it said, it rolls back. Tried 3 times with 2 different downloaded SPs.
