Vista, Server 2008 SP2 Public Downloads Avail.

Waiting for official, non-TechNet, non-MSDN access to Windows Vista SP2? Well, you can now download it.

Remember, this is a combined service pack for both Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. Service Pack 1 is a prerequisite for installing Service Pack 2.

Highlights of the changes, many of which have already been delivered separately, include:
  • Windows Search 4.0 for faster and improved relevancy in searches
  • Bluetooth 2.1 Feature Pack supporting the most recent specification for Bluetooth Technology
  • Ability to record data on to Blu-Ray media natively in Windows Vista
  • Adds Windows Connect Now (WCN) to simplify Wi-Fi Configuration
  • Windows Vista SP2 enables the exFAT file system to support UTC timestamps, which allows correct file synchronization across time zones.
Microsoft has a more detailed look at the changes in a "notable changes document" on TechNet.

Here are the downloads:

And to answer my own question, I have resolved my issue.  what i did was run CHKDSK on the C: drive, and this enable SP2 to install.
