INTRODUCTION

This article discusses several unsupported methods to update a customized image of Windows Vista to a Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) image.

Note The original customized image is based on the release version of Windows Vista.

More information

Windows Vista SP1 does not support the following deployment practices:
  • You mount an offline image of the release version of Windows Vista, and then you install or integrate Windows Vista SP1 into the offline image.
  • You install Windows Vista SP1 or any of the pre-Windows Vista SP1 packages during the offline-servicing phase of setup.
  • You use the Pkgmgr.exe utility to add Windows Vista SP1 or any of the pre-Windows Vista SP1 packages to an offline image of Windows Vista.
  • You use the /integrate parameter to create Windows Vista SP1 integrated media.

    Note Instead, you should obtain the Windows Vista SP1 media directly from Microsoft.
For complete information about supported methods to update a Windows Vista image to a Windows Vista SP1 image, download the Automated Installation Kit (AIK) for Windows Vista SP1 and for Windows Server 2008. To do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
