:D
Microsoft has started to release Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2) pre-beta to testers. Similar to the old SP1 beta, Microsoft is still using the PC GUID identification of the tester and the usual batch command script to release Windows Vista SP2 through Windows Update.(no manual download is available yet)

The build version number of the released Vista SP2 is 6002.16489 (lh_sp2beta.080924-1740).

Admin Edit:
If you want to test Vista SP2 beta then you can download the batch file from here.

Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2) Pre-Beta 6002.16489 Released to Selected Testers



The build version number of the released Vista SP2 is 6002.16489 (lh_sp2beta.080924-1740). Before installing Service Pack 2 into Windows Vista, a small hotfix KB955430 Servicing Stack Update will be installed to ensure that the future update and installation of SP2 into all editions of Windows Vista SP2 can be done successfully and without error.

Depending on the editions and features installed on Windows Vista, the size of SP1 pre-beta download can be ranged from 290.7 MB to 296.9 MB.

Just installed things seem a bit more responsive

Before it went to my desktop though it said personalizing desktop and it said something about configuring Windows 7 mail

I tried searching for the mail thing but couldn't find it.

Didn't post it so I wouldn't know maybe the original poster will come back and know what the issue is.

Is it possible to install SP2 on SP0 OS? Because one of my installed vista editions just doesn't accept SP1...
