I thought Vista SP2 is already out since last week (Windows 7 build 7100) :D.

On a side note you need at least 5GB free to install... and it's taking FOREVER to install! :)

5 gigabytes to install >_> that's awful a lot for a service pack, but hell, who does have five gigabyte free space left on their system drive.

Jeez. I only have 1.2 gigs free on my system drive. Guess I won't be installing this any time soon then. Sigh.

Figures...no more than an hour since I finished doing a system wipe/reinstall/setup...they release SP2.

They haven't released it yet, probably won't be released until sometime in May or June....

Why the paranoia? You can download it yourself and check the digital signature of the .exe before running it.

Installed and overall works great except for one problem ... i can't seem to play divx movies in media center. Plays fine in windows media player but not media center. I've tried installing Xvid and Divx and all i get is a black screen. Can someone else check this?
