Installing Windows Vista: Activation before or after SP1 updates?
I'm Going to install Windows Vista once SP1 is release in Windows Update or
Microsoft site. I want to make sure that installation is perfectly right
before activating it. Once i finish Windows Vista installation, Is it ok to
install SP1 first using Window Updates then activate it afterward? I have
dial-up right now, Will their be a SP1 CD available for order?

Re: Installing Windows Vista: Activation before or after SP1 updates?
You can wait to activate for up to 30 days after the install (which can be
extended to 120 days). So, go ahead and install SP1 and see if everything
works fine before activating.

SP1 CD/DVD should be available in the future, but it is not right now. I
know you can download a disk image if you have a faster connection and CD
burner at work or a friends house.
