Check out the Blog for more info. A very helpful Valkirie has pointed this out to have it install: If you want to try Vista Service Pack 2 - BETA.1. Creatre a batch file called vista.bat 2. Put the following lines into it. @echo off reg delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSp2 /f > NUL 2>&1 reg delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSP2 /f > NUL 2>&1 reg add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSp2 /v Beta1 /t REG_SZ /d C21A5C64-2530-CC19-042F-9ABDB4ED27F9 /f pause 3. Restart Windows. 4. Go into Windows Update. When you run the batch file make sure you run it as "Admininstrator" or it will not change anything. Remember this is a BETA version of SP2 not the final version. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
