Getting ready for Vista SP1

Getting ready for Vista SP1

I've now carried out well over a hundred Vista to Vista Service Pack 1 upgrades. While many of the upgrades I carried out were experimental and done on test rigs which I considered to be sacrificial, quite a few have been key production machines which I cannot afford to have out of service for any extended period of time. With the public release of Vista SP1 drawing nearer, it's a good time to share with you the Vista to Vista SP1 action plan that I developed that has meant that I have (so far ... ) enjoyed a 100% success rate. By following this action plan I've kept downtime to a minimum and suffered no data loss at all.
