    Slipstreaming Vista Sp1 to SP2

    Is there a way to slipstream Vista SP1 to SP2?
    I need to run repair/upgrade from my Vista SP1....but it won't allow me because I have SP2 installed.
    If I can't slipstream will removing SP2 work?

    Thanks for your response!
    I had found this site....& was troubled by the lack of response to the 2 messages at the bottom (dated Feb. & June 2010)!
    Other sites claim that Vlite does not support SP2??
    I found this site:

    http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/23...vista-sp2.html

    But before I invest bandwidth & time I would like to hear from someone who's actually done it.
    My desktop can't install certain updates. Ran sfc/ scannow. Nothing! Msft error codes suggest if scannow doen't find anything to do a repair/upgrade. But the system still works.
    If not I will upgrade to Win 7 & rebuild pc after they fix the Intel Cougar Point support chip to a Sandy Bridge system.

    Any of the posts can be trusted to provide adequate advice on slipstreaming. Whatever you do, be sure to image your system to provide a known safe point to which you can go back to.
