Sabotaged Service Packs RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I am not trying to be vindictive just making a statement about what I think they are doing because of all my research. What has Microsoft sabotaged Windows Vista's ability to install Service packs. There are thousands of users that have or are facing this sabotage and Microsoft is making no effort to fix. Even paid support cannot or are not allowed resolve the issue. This is just to force users to buy an upgraded OS and those that cannot afford to buy the new OS is just completely screwed by Microsofts greed for money. This is such a criminal action by Microsoft. I can only be disproven by Microsoft resolving this issue. I am also going to the news with this...

  • You could bring this up in Microsoft Community

    The "News" knows of this, by the way.

    Microsoft has a well published support lifecycle

  • I have done everything and restored my system after standalone install, After removing virus and malware, etc apps, I also did this from the installation CD for Vista. Still no updates and as you see the system log thinks it is installed but if I try and install SP2 it says I have to install SP1 first. On the properties there is no indication that SP1 is installed

  • If the pc was compromised then its really impossible to know what damage might have been done. If it were me I'd clean install it but either case I'd ask them over here.

  • Been there and done that. I have no idea how it could have been compromised. Everything came from original CD's for OS and  the machine. The only change is that the Hard Drive crashed and was replaced with the recommended hard drive by Dell. I am willing to wipe the drive as I have a backup of where I am now if necessary. The end of next week or the week after I will start from scratch using all the origin CD's for the machine from DELL. If I get back to the same place I will let you know. I have two very important recording sessions in the studio  with groups where the computer is located and the recording system on it works as well as the as burning the data to a CD...
    Friday, November 1, 2013 1:29 AM
  • Ok, I miss-read After removing virus and malware, etc apps. I now see you meant removed the applications and NOT virus. If you do clean install it then right after the Dell chipset goes in I'd run the system update readiness tool and fix any found issues before moving on. The Vista/2008 kernel was a major change from XP/2003 and seems to have been prone to servicing store corruption which the SUR tool will almost always fix and allow service pack and windows updates to be applied.

  • I have removed everything from the disk, formatted and installed several times I have had a Microsoft and another tech take over my machine. I have done every diagnostics test on the software and the hardware everything passes. I have downloaded a Microsoft sponcered application that will resolve the issue. So far my claim is holding fast. Microsoft has sabotaged the software forcing people to upgrade. It is ridiculous that Microsoft has done this but at this point it is way too obvious what they have done...

  • Don't know what to tell you. I've yet to have an issue with installing a vista or 2008 (non R2) service pack. Either case I'd ask the experts about it over here.

  • I just bought a new computer without the OS installed and a drivers disk. I then installed windows, Nic, Chip set and video. I am now getting the same exact errors. This cannot be a coincidence I could conceivably have issues installing SP1 but not get exactly the same error note for note cannot be a fluke but sabotage by Microsoft.
    Thursday, November 7, 2013 7:05 AM
  • I'm very surprised you could by a new computer with Windows Vista. This one might help

  • Dave I was pretty upset last night. I actually bought the computer a couple of months after the first XPS420 I took it without the OS as I had bough at the Microsoft store two copies of Vista Ultimate after I bought the first XPS420. These were the exact same machines the second one is in another studio. that was the machine I got the exact same errors on. last night I could not even think straight  I was so furious getting the same exact error on a second machine that was  a match for the machine that crashed. I do appreciate the help you have given but I am still very agitated about this issue. right now I can't even afford the upgrade for OS 7 or 8 so I am pretty stuck. I have also found out that it is impossible to make a formal complaint to Microsoft, there is no path to one. catch you later...

  • Your disk build is 32 or 64 bit? No SP? or with SP1? Assuming you're installing SP2? I'll stand one up this weekend and try it as a test.

  • Ok so I just installed a volume license version of Vista Enterprise gold (no service pack), Installed Hyper-V Integration services (in your case with physical computer this would be installing the dell chipset and later the dell drivers pack), installed SP1 without issue, then installed SP2 without issue. Conclusion is that neither service pack appears to be sabotaged.

    If your disk is a dell branded one then you might ask in the dell forums.

  • For what it's worth, this type of problem is usually caused by the manufacturer-installed Anti-virus interfering with Windows Updates - since the AV is certainly out of date, it should be uninstalled, and then the AV manufacturer's removal tool run.

    For temporary (or permanent) protection, MSE can be downloaded and installed at least until all current updates and service packs are in.
