Windows Vista & Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 FAQs

This article provides some answers to common questions about Service Pack 2 for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. Do note that this is based on the Release Candidate (RC). There may be some changes to the final release to manufacturing (RTM) version. However, the changes are likely to be minor in nature

As usual, we will update this article as and when we receive them, so check back often! Here are our other scoops on Microsoft :

General FAQs

What is the language release schedule plan for SP2?
Microsoft will be releasing five languages (English, German, Spanish, French, and Japanese) in the first release and an additional 31 languages together in a second wave sometime after the first release. Please see this article for more details.

When did you release Service Pack 1 for Windows Server 2008? Why is this there a second service pack for Server 2008 which had no SP1?
Server08 released with the Service Pack 1 code included, and was marketed as Server08 with SP1 already included. SP2 is the first post-release Service Pack for Server 2008.

Are there any prerequisites for SP2?
You must have Windows Vista with SP1 or Windows Server 2008 with SP1 installed on your PC before installing Service Pack 2.

If you choose to install SP2 over Windows Update there will be one pre-required package to install, Servicing Stack Update (KB955430), before Windows Update offers you SP2.

The Servicing stack is the component that handles installation and removal of software updates, language packs, and optional windows features. This update is necessary to successfully install and uninstall the service pack; it also improves the performance and reliability of the service pack installation.
