While we know that most customers who update from Windows Vista to SP1 will NOT be affected, our approach is to improve the experience for all our customers. To do this, we will begin making SP1 available through Windows Update in mid-March, giving us time to work with some of our hardware partners to make adjustments to the installation process for the affected drivers. As SP1 gets delivered through Windows Update, we will only offer it to PCs that we detect don't have any of the affected device drivers installed. We're taking the next month or so to continue our work of identifying as many of these devices as possible.
Ugh. The way it's going to roll-out, with PCs unable to upgrade to SP1 until a device driver update is delivered to their PC - also via Windows Update - is going to be a) confusing, b) frustrating. Thanks for yet another super Windows Vista experience, Microsoft!
