Since yesterday, Microsoft offers a documentation update for the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK). The title of this page at the Microsoft Download Center is: "Windows Automated Installation Kit Documentation (Windows Server code named "Longhorn" & Windows Vista SP1 Beta 3)" It seems I missed Beta 1 and Beta 2 of Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista, somehow.

Who ever published this, obviously didn't catch that Longhorn has been christened Windows Server 2008 some time ago. But he or she must have better information regarding Service Pack 1 for Vista. The last thing I heard about Vista SP1 is that it might come out together with Windows Server 2008. But is there really a Beta 3 of Vista SP1, too? And if so, why isn't it publicly available like the one for WS2k8?

    The service pack 1 for Windows Vista isn’t due to release until the end of July. It wwas originally meant to be released in April but everything changed.

    The Beta 3 refers to Windows Server 2008 and not SP1… its a mistype.

    While there’s undoubtedly a service pack for vista, its stated to contain no new features just an errata of all the bugfixes so far & probably some new ones. Will likely be released end of 2007, beginning of 2008
