How to Download and install Service Pack 2 for Windows Vista - video tutorial

A few days ago we present a video tutorial how to install and some settings for Windows Vista and now we learn together how to install Service Pack for Windows Vista 2 all.

What is SP2?
SP2 comes from Service Pack, Packet some sites are available in a package.
What makes this Service Pack?
Well it brings better stability to the operating system, better compatibility between Vista and hardware, security breaches are fixed, bugs that have been discovered in the meantime as well and they are "repaired" by this service pack. To install the service pack, all you have to do is go to the official Microsoft website and then access the Download Center and from there download Windows Vista Service Pack 2. You can choose between an executable or an ISO image, the choice and the installation method will be belongs. In the tutorial I chose to download the executable because it seemed much simpler and available to anyone. If we had chosen the ISO image, we would have needed to burn a CD with it or install an ISO image emulator such as Daemon Tools, and then mount the ISO image and install it.
Why install Service Pack and what we help?
Many applications require Service Pack 2 or will not run at all without Service Pack 2, another reason would be to have a stable system, and immunization system against new malicious programs related to security.

I advise you to make a backup before installing Service Pack community. Usually there are no problems installing it and everything goes well but to avoid any incompatibilities that may arise between software that you already have installed and Service Pack 2 is recommended that you make a backup or restore point by accessing System Restore
If you do not know how to make a back-up my colleague Cristi presented in several tutorial how to make a backup using Acronis True Image software

That being said I invite you to follow along this video tutorial, and do not forget! We welcome comments, suggestions and additions related to your tutorial on the comments box !!

  10. andreydfaSal guys !!! Make a great job !!! I'd like a tutorial dak can about the differences between Windows XP and sp 2 sp3

    We understand, Windows XP SP has his sites respectively SP1 SP2 and SP3 and Windows Vista SP's sites and SP1 SP2 Respectively. Why has 3 XP and Vista service pacj sites only 2 service packs? Because Windows XP is old, older, and were immediately needed improvements to bring it up to date to be stable, secure, while Vista is newer, and it contains stuff today than XP so do not was needed to be done yet SP3 for him but in time you will discover new security breaches, incompatibility with other software on the part of Vista will be done and for him a SP3 to update to repair breaches security.

  11. bv tutorial welcome to do a good job

  12. Paul: Miami got the latest version, I had those guys who prezentato Christ in the first tutorial virtualbox, but I see Windwos 7 can not be downloaded from Microsoft only torrents dc?

    What was available for download was not the final version of windows 7 it was a test Windows 7, a kind of demo for you to see as a user who deals with it… how it works… if you like, to report some errors to them so that they can improve it when they release the final version! Naturally, this test period has ended, Microsoft has closed the code for Windows 7 because it will be released on 22.10.2009 Windows is not a free operating system !!!

    Ok Adrian ms

  18. Adrian you teach the world to deactivate system restore and you also tell them that it is good to do that restore point! Adulate people and show them how to activate system restore again. And something else that covers the security breaches… ..security tio create yourself not with handheld microsoft !!!

    Flory: adrian why I can not watch movies

    explain me better and give you that error?

  20. CorleoneAdrian teach you disable system restore his world and everything you tell them it's good to take that restore point! Adullam people remember and show you how to operate the new system restore.Si still something that covers security breaches ... ..siguranta Microsoft not only create tio hand !!!

    I think people were paying attention to the first tutorial with installing Vista where I specified very clearly that if you want to activate some of the ones you deactivated by the same method you reactivate them, only when you go to Services instead of giving right click properties and Disable, choose automatically. After restarting the service for System Restore right click on My Computer then Properties, on the left side of the System protection window click on it, in that window check the box in front of the C give Apply and OK. I believe that in fact only you are the one who does not know how to reactivate system restore and not the world, you no longer speak instead of the world and let the world say alone if it wants something… do not speak instead of the world 😉

  21. Adrian: I think people were paying attention to the first tutorial by installing Vista where we have very clear that if you want to activate some of those that you have disabled all the same method reactivate them, just there when you walk in Services instead give Disable right click and properties, choose automatic. After you restart System Restore service for you right click My Computer and then Properties, the left window of the System protection clicking on it in that window tick box in front of C's give Apply and OK. I think only you who actually knows how to reactivate the system restore, not seen, let alone place you in the world and let the world say only if you want something ... not speak in place of the world

    Sorry I did not speak in place of bounds, but says he was better if this videotutorial content and explanation (you know that many are going target to something and not follow previous or are not paying attention) I for myself know enough not how you maybe putzin ..poate May mult.Era just my opinion!

  22. managed tutorial congratulations !!!!
    I want to do a tutorial on installing Windows 98 if you can !!!
    I wish you continued success in !!!!

  23. Congratulations for the tutorial! Very useful especially hidden settings…

  26. Cristi want to ask you to do a tutorial on how to download a Windows on the net easier than with other nam did not go I need a windows

  27. The complete installation period of SP2 lasts in 90% of cases much more than 15 minutes. It also seems that the installation time depends on the version of Vista… Basic, Home, Business or Ultimate. On Business with a configuration of AMD Turion 1.8 × 2 GHz, 2 Giga rami, it lasts somewhere at 40 - 50 minutes but on a similar configuration Intel 1.6 × 2 GHz, 2 Giga rami, Home Premium, it lasts only 20 - 25 minutes.

    PS. At one point in minute 13 you say "SP 3" instead of SP 2.

  28. EasyCom: Full installation period of SP2's you in 90% of cases more than 15 minutes. It also seems that the time of installation and the version of Vista you ... Basic, Home, Business or Ultimate. Business on the configuration of AMD Turion 1.8 2 × GHz Giga rami 2, 40 you somewhere - 50 minutes but a similar configuration GHz Intel 1.6 × 2, 2 Giga rami, Home Premium, you just 20 - 25 minute.PS . At one point in 13 minutes about "SP 3" instead of SP 2.

    yes, so are you and the performance of the pc you use, that's more wrong… no one is perfect! Thank you for completing and we are still waiting for you

  30. Hello guys! You do a very good job with these tutorials… but I have a problem installing sp 2… after a few days after installation it gives me that blue screen kind of error… .why is it?

  31. salutare.executabilele saved to desktop for example, after you have installed should be removed? I have a delicate problem, namely, i formatted partition D and erased all of it, instead I did no backup, no cd recovery after therefore I tried to do cd recovery, I do not give permission, I would like to reinstall Vista that you've preinstalled on the laptop, what can be done beyond the fact that should I get the cD with system operation, not to mention that those found torrents incredere.merci not give you much.

    How can you not give permission to do the recovery cd? Why say it when you want to do? Kits to software (executable as they say so) you can delete them after you install the software in question or you can keep for later in case you uninstall software ... you do not go on the net to download the kit ... you have somewhere to another partition. I never had the laptop and do not know you clarify exactly how it works but most likely was set to make automatic backups or restore points! I know that laptops have a backup partition from which you can give back-up to restore the back-up utility or vista cd recovery.

    Well, if you reread what he wrote in casual person, you will see that partition D is deleted (stupid btw). In this case went to ride the Vista or XP image that yes, indeed in most cases is on partition D. Depending on the brand laptop, there may be a DVD that there is an image similar to that of partition deleted, but few manufacturers offer such a disc (DELL know for sure that it offers).
    My opinion is that without violating any law of copyright, can take torrents such an image (sure there), just be careful for what model laptop is DELL, Acer, HP, Vaio, etc ... Or ... to get hold of an original Vista (a normal OEM) from a neighbor, colleague, acquaintance, etc., install it and when asked to enter the license key on his laptop.

    From what I know of the recovery partition is invisible to the user so it appears in my computer sees only software that makes cd recovery. My brother has an Eee PC and the same, partition recovery was not visible on my computer than manager partitions or if you reinstall Windows you reach the partitions you a show ... I sterso ... (I formatato) Cause I do not know what software is able to walk in it ... well ... xp sites are found on all roads, as you said, we sought a clean image and I put xp license sticker on the back of the laptop. What could be done with that partition EasyCom? adik ... what could recover her ... how could walk there? what software? xp mention that before all was ...

    Look, in many cases it is not invisible any more to me was, nor is, but being only 10 gig, I left it alone because it allows me a new Vista within minutes. Partition (on DELL) is accessible immediately after starting the laptop, long before booting the OS. There is a written order Fxy down automatically at startup that makes recovery software (if not deleted partition of course). So requires no additional software, everything is done automatically and set the laptop motherboard manufacturer. These are things tested, so even talk knowledgeably.

  36. thank you for advice even his EasyCom, that's right, once deleted can no longer recover partition is visible at first, just do not let you go into it with a message of warning and something that they are security documents computer, so I asked to try to make a videotutorial with Vista home premium pre-installed, because here in switzerland where I live all that you know and have bought laptops, the operating system is preinstalled and unfortunately it vista home premium cd without laptop.apropo next update fatten the order of tens of gb.merci more!

    Regarding the update, I have Vista Business Edition preinstalled 2 half years ago, with all the updates from day SP2, Giga etc and has 17,5.

  38. EasyCom-in terms of just the operating system is 17,5 gb, except for software that has included them gandesc.eu I have an hp-1215, what do you make of it

  39. The software installed in addition to, not almost any size job with Windows or with the updates. So sit back as your configuration you plenty of room for 3 operating systems and still remains your place to swim. Have good laptop, make Fatza about any currently Fatza should not worry. Somehow or another, any operating system swells with time even the old XP.

Who hath ears to hear and eyes to vada.Daca who has everything you bored by now if he could to make a videotutorial for PRG. Customizing Windows does not allow me to come but I tell them that I mean the idea style xp cursor fx MDD ssa again thank ye are sweet expression that is wrong but I find it at this time so keep him all but Remember to take saitu configured's not too good to give them opportunities and altii.Daca want to communicate strictly cc issues. Messi address [email protected] I would be delighted if you'd learn how to install prg. fx cursor remains a dilemma for me ms. More scz the comments

    thank you to you if you can pt.videotutoriale has to make a VDT. and about FX rate not put your comment in writing 5 minutes of your sin will not spoil all visitors are so advanced that your culture every comma lu them if you help me my address is [email protected] but not that much leg. with saitu lacking the new configurartie

    If you looked at the tutorial more carefully I specified that the installation and download of sp3 for XP is identical, if you looked at the tutorial exactly above under sp2 for vista write sp3 for xp, instead of clicking on download sp3 click on download sp3 for windows xp, and download. once you had that sp3 on your pc, the installation procedure is the same as the one for vista, double click on it next next… the same steps as in the tutorial here. I didn't understand what you meant by that "you have to wait 5 minutes for comments" ??? Posting comments is the same as before, only now a new function has been added, in case you missed a word or something in the comment or simply if you want to add something to the comment click on the red button click to edit, you have 5 minutes available to change your comment, and before this function was not, so it's something extra !!! Maybe you don't know English and that's why you're so confused… I don't know what to say… navigating the site is much easier than before, we have the categories above, drop down menus, site archive, playlist section as before… everything is just like placed a little differently.

  47. The data remain the same when changing service pack? because I have more data .. 150gb and do not want to lose them

  48. adrianDetails: Service Pack remain the same change? because I have more data .. 150gb and do not want to lose them

    In principle does not lose anything, but to be sure 100% is good to do a backup or restore point.
    In the future, don't give comments that contain links because you will automatically enter spam, now I found you in spam and I "saved" you, try to use another name because "Adrian" is already used.
