SP2, not what I had hoped for

Recommended Posts


I had a problem with increased boot times (even on a clean install with SP2) but I found that defrag'ing sorted it out... just a suggestion.

sp2 updates the sp1 on your cd.....its not like a choice of having sp1 or sp2. if u slipstream sp2 u have only sp2.

and theres tons of space left after doing that.

P.S Use nlite!

it's slow because it frags the bejebus out of the drive. Mine was 49% fragmented after I installed SP2

post defrag and bootvis'ing, I was actually booting faster than with Sp1.

Wondered if anyone was going to say this. And people think they don't need to defrag anymore. I do, VERY regularily. Absolutely rediculous to have to do a fresh install just because of installing a service pack!! Of course that will speed up stuff. I've installed SP2 on 4 of my machines without doing a fresh install and EVERYTHING works great and just as fast as before. Amazing what happens when you defrag before and after.
