aaroe, you mean you are trying to install SP1 on vlited RTM ? Maybe your SP1 was vLite Slipstreamed or MS Preintegrated?
Please read this: http://www.vlite.net/servicepack.html
No, sorry if I didn't explain it properly.
I have a danish Vista Ultimate x64 without SP1. A few days ago I decided that I needed a reinstall and gave the vLite 1.2b a spin. Firstly I slipstreamed it with SP1 and then I began the process of removing the junk from Vista which I don't need. I then rebuilded, burned and installed. When the computer booted the first time, it began to finish step 3 of 3 of the SP1 installation. When it was done with that, it rebooted but when it started up again it began, yet again, on step 3 of 3 of the SP1 installation. This then just continued without be being able to stop the process at any point. I then googled it a bit and noticed that you had written that the 1.2b version should help those who had experienced it. I then assumed I had been unlucky and tried yet again - I had done none out of the ordinary when I made the vLite and removed nothing crucial. My next vLite installation went the same way without me being able to track down why the problem occured or how to solve it. Just immediately after my 2nd failed attempt you released 1.2RC so I thought that third time was the charm and then tried yet again - but now with the new 1.2RC. After building my vLite install I tried my luck but the problem occured again. The computer is stuck in a loop with the 3rd step of SP1 installation process.
I've validated, over and over again, that the SP1 I'm using to slipstream is the correct one and that it's not broken by doing CRC and MD5 checksum on it - I really don't get it.

The snipping tool doesn't seem to work without DRM, when trying to start it, it says a component is missing (msdrm.dll)
Also, is there a way to get rid of windows meeting space? I can turn it off in the windows feature selection, but i would much rather have vlite be able to do it.
Otherwise, this is great!

EDIT:Thanks for the info DemonicHawk.I need Snipping Tool very much so will keep DRM for now.Have you tried copying the DLL file manually?.Maybe then ST will start?

I really think it is the non-public updates. Removing alot is fine aswell, coz i installed vista on my second hdd and removed almost everything except a few, and it also worked fine, including MSN and VS 2008.
I will integrate all the post sp1 non-public updates to see if thats the case, or something else.

I'm currently busy slipping in the hotfixes after having succesfully slipstreamed SP1, but boy it takes like 9 hours to get both these tasks finished and applied!
Although I think vlite is an amazing tool, I wonder why we're even slipstreaming SP1 and all the hotfixes. Isn't that the base that every user wants and requires no matter what they want to change with the Vista install? Why not build a big huge slipstreamed Vista (all versions) and make people torrent that DVD, so they only have to get that one, use that for vlite and that way skip all the hassle with the SP1 and hotfixes?
And like many have written before me:
Why even offer the uninstall option for hotfixes? Is there REALLY anyone on this planet who has EVER uninstalled 1 hotfix?
I'm amazed at how bandwidth ineffective and space-wasting these things still are. In just a few weeks I've been downloading about 50 Gigabytes of fixes, drivers, base iso's, of which half was double (I had it already, just didn't know where since all these tasks are so not transparent). I understand that Microsoft is to blame for most of this (they've stopped offering downloadable Vista x64 images too), but still, I don't think we should have to deal with the repeated hassle of slipstreaming until we have the base vista we need. I have my legal vista-license, dammit. Why the need for the non-stop validation everywhere?
Also, just to be certain:
Is there a way to insert our own registry files (.reg) yet, at the final stages of the install? I've seen this feature on the wishlists of many, but I still don't see it in vlite. Would seem an easy one to add, and quite a good one indeed!
Again, thanks for your helpful tool. Very much appreciated!

this is because you have slipstreamed the Sp1. There are so many pending packages left and integrating more hotfixes will result in more pending packages which must be handled by the Servicing Stack. If you integrated the Updates to a clean MS Sp1 integrated DVD the integration is much faster.

It would be much easier for Microsoft to simply offer the latest of the latest Vista images to the world, with the latest fixes already in them, and offering them as torrents. Would save them a LOT of bandwidth too. Or the vlite community could offer such images as torrents.
If anyone has a Vista x64 SP1 iso for me, including all recent hotfixes slipstreamed. I only require English language pack, that would be perfect. But I don't see any links to torrents here. Guess it's considered "warez" or "illegal". (I don't even see why this would be illegal, I'm still going to have to use my license key for it, am I not?)
