Before you install Windows Vista Service Pack 1
* If you install Windows Vista and then install this release candidate of SP1 without first activating Windows Vista, you might not be able to uninstall the service pack.Either activate Windows Vista before you install SP1 or activate SP1 before you attempt to uninstall the service pack.Customer Experience Improvement Program

In some cases, computers that use multiple monitors may display black screens when the display mode is changed after resuming from sleep. This issue can also affect laptop computers connected to an external monitor. Display mode changes may occur in any of the following circumstances:
* Attaching or detaching a monitor.To avoid this, do not use multiple monitors, or do not allow the computer to sleep or change the display mode.
If this has already occurred, restart the computer.
Event log messages
The following events from the Shell Hardware Detection service are not valid and can be safely ignored:
* Event 7011 A time-out (30000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a transaction response from the ShellHWDetection service.Group Policy management
This issue affects Windows Vista Business and Windows Vista Enterprise.
When you install Windows Vista SP1, the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) is removed from the computer. It is being replaced by an updated downloadable version, which will be available later.
To continue managing Group Policy from a client computer, do either one of the following:
* Maintain a computer running Windows Vista for managing Group Policy.Note
If you must run the GPMC from a computer running Windows Vista, do not install this release of Windows Vista SP
* If you attempt to install this release candidate of SP1 immediately after uninstalling any of the release candidate preview versions, installation may fail.To avoid this, wait at least 30 minutes after uninstalling the preview version before you start this installation. You can check that the computer is ready for installation by running the following command at a command prompt:Message Queuing
If your computer is in workgroup mode and you install this service pack, and then uninstall the service pack, the Message Queuing (MSMQ) service will not start. The event log will indicate that “notify_queue$” was not found.
To correct this, complete the following steps:
Edit the Local Queue Storage file
1. Start Notepad with administrative rights.Microsoft .NET Framework
If your computer is running Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 and Internet Information Services (IIS) is configured to host XOML files, and you then install this release candidate of SP1, the files may not load properly if the application pool is in Integrated Mode. When you attempt to load the file, you will receive HTTP error 404.17.
To correct this, use the WFServicesReg.exe /c command to install handlers for Integrated Mode. This command is in the %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5\ directory.System Restore
When you install this service pack on a computer with low available disk space, the installer may delete previous System Restore points and shadow copies. This means that you may not be able to revert to the exact state of the computer prior to installing the service pack and that previous versions of files may not be available.Uninstallation
Follow these steps to uninstall SP1 using the command line:
To uninstall SP1 using Package Manager
1. Click Start, expand All Programs, and expand Accessories.

Forget about it; it is more complicated than getting married to three women at the same time.
